One of Rolling Stones ‘100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time’, Richard Thompson, returns to Victoria’s Alix Goolden Hall November 2nd. Named by LA Times as “The finest songwriter since Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix”, Richard Thompson has sold out his last two concerts at Alix Goolden, the latter as an opening guest for Emmy Lou Harris. In 2017, Ivor Novello Award-winning and GRAMMY® Award-nominated legend Richard Thompson gave himself up to the music itself. Picking up a guitar, emotions echoed through his deft fleet-fingered fretwork, poetic songwriting, impassioned picking. Those transmissions comprise his nineteenth solo album, 13 Rivers.Thompson’s influence can’t be overstated. Everybody from Robert Plant, Don Henley, and Elvis Costello to REM, Sleater-Kinney and David Byrne has covered his music.He will be on Vancouver Island one night only, with special opening guest Eliza Gilkyson, for what will be a special evening of music
