Richard Thompson: New Album ‘Electric’!

Richard Thompson.  Right now you’re either thinking ‘YES!!’ or ‘is he the kid in school that burnt down the kitchen’.  In all honesty I was one of the latter not knowing really who he was but am now a belated YES.  He is one of Rolling Stone’s 20 Greatest Guitarists of all time, and has been in bands like The Fairport Convention and The Albion Band.

He’s back with a new album, Electric.  Recorded earlier this year it also marks the fortieth anniversary of this first recording Henry The Human Fly.  It features guests like Siobhan Mather Kennedy and Stuart Duncan.  To support the album Thompson has put together a new band called The Electric Trio.  No prizes for guessing that there’s three of them Thompson on guitars, Michael Jerome on drums and Taras Prodaniuk.  As well as new band there’s a new tour which is all kinds of big, tour dates are below.
