Richard Thompson

“If I don’t write, if I don’t perform, I get frustrated and I don’t feel like the human being I should be,” says guitarist and singer-songwriter Richard Thompson—which isn’t hard to believe, given the art, passion, and virtuosity that the influential English folk rock legend has unfailingly brought to the studio and the stage for nearly 60 years. 2024’s Ship to Shore, Thompson’s 20th solo album, was recorded in Woodstock, just up the road from Levon Helm Studios, where he’s doing this intimate two-night stint.
