On Tuesday, January 9th @ 6:30PM, DJ Berkestir speaks with English singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Richard Thompson

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, Thompson left Fairport 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 who tours both solo acoustic and with his electric trio.

Thompson continues to make new music. In 2017, he released both Acoustic Classics II and Acoustic Rarities.
