Richard Thompson

31 May @ 19:00 - 22:00

World-renowned guitarist and songwriter Richard Thompson arrives in Manchester on his Ship To Shore tour

A pioneer of British Folk Rock and winner of the coveted Ivor Novello Award for songwriting, Richard Thompson hits the road in 2024 with a stop at Aviva Studios.

Richard Thompson kickstarted his career as co-founder, lead guitarist and songwriter of Fairport Convention – a trailblazing rock outfit that ignited the British Folk Rock movement in the late 1960s.

Now a wildly successful soloist – with 19 solo albums and a string of awards under his belt – Thompson received perhaps the highest praise when the Los Angeles Times dubbed him ‘the finest songwriter after Dylan’.

In 2018, Thompson released his 19th solo album 13 Rivers. Self-produced at the famed Boulevard Recording Studio in L.A., 13 Rivers is powered by evocative songcraft, jaw-dropping guitar and an indefinable spirit.

Join Richard Thompson in the Hall for a journey through his extraordinary back catalogue – brought to life with a full band.
