It is a privilege and an honor to present England's premier singer/ songwriter/ guitarist at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center in Westbrook, Maine.

"The Finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix." - LA Times

Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson is also one of the world's most critically acclaimed and prolific songwriters. He has received Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic-from the Americanas in Nashville to Britain's BBC Awards, and the prestigious Ivor Novellos. In 2011 Thompson was the recipient of the OBE (Order of the British Empire) personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Most recently he was nominated for "Artist of the Year" by the Americana Music Honors & Awards.

Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the 60's, Richard Thompson and his mates virtually invented British Folk Rock. By the age of 21 he left the band to pursue his own career, followed by a decade long musical partnership with his then-wife Linda, to over 30 years as a highly successful solo artist. A wide range of musicians have recorded Thompson's music including Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, REM, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, David Byrne, Don Henley and many others.


Ticket Information: All seats are General Admission.


NOTE: TICKETS MAY BE PICKED UP AND DOORS OPEN BEGINNING ONE HOUR BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE.
