On the 'tube

Richard Thompson from home


I’ve usually caught a Richard Thompson show by this time each year. The guy is 71 and every bit as good, maybe better.

This was livecast from his home. It’s about an hour, so grab a beer.


He does them every Sunday on Facebook!


Phenomenal guitarist and songwriter


While we were living in Lower Manhattan we watched Richard play a solo show outdoors along the Hudson at the North Cove Marina. The stage was set in front of the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center. It was an NYC Summer Series event.

5 minute walk from our apartment up the Esplanade...

Free Happy Hour Friday concert, nice warm sunny evening, 1000's of folks all having a grand time...he seemed pretty thrilled. Bigger than his average crowd all to himself, perfect conditions.
