It was especially gratifying on that warm July night in 2001 when Richard
Thomson graced the Austin City Limits stage, as the eclectic yet elusive
tunesmith from West London hardly ever makes it to Texas. Best of all, he
brought along long-time bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Michael Jerome.
Without dwelling on his excellent fret work (Rolling Stone ranks him in the top
20 of the world’s 100 greatest guitarists,) Thompson also has a unique way of
writing contemporary songs that draw upon deep traditional genres, whether rock,
folk or Celtic. This performance demonstrates his skill clearly.
"I am communicating with a certain number of people, and if my music is too dark or in your face for some, or not glossy enough for mass appeal, I'm glad." - Richard Thompson
One thing you can count on: he will do whatever moves him, whether he's singing about loners, and losers or chronicling the darker side of life, and he will connect with his audience in a way that few artists know how.
