Ivor Novello Award-winning and GRAMMY® Award-nominated legend Richard Thompson joins us at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for a solo show in support of his new book 'Beeswing'.

Special Guest: Katherine Priddy ("The best thing I've heard all year" - Richard Thompson)

Richard Thompson is a world-renowned singer, songwriter and guitarist, best known for his work in the folk rock group Fairport Convention. Rolling Stone named him as one of the ‘Top 20 Guitarists of All Time’ and he has received lifetime achievement awards for songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic. 

In his book 'Beeswing', Thompson goes back to his childhood, recreates the spirit of the sixties and takes us inside life on the road in the UK and the US, crossing paths – and occasionally sharing the stage – with the likes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Nick Drake, Jimi Hendrix and others.

An intimate memoir of musical discovery, personal history and social revelation, 'Beeswing' vividly captures the life of one of Britain’s most significant artists during a heady period of creative intensity, in a world on the cusp of change.

"The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix." (Los Angeles Times)

'Beeswing: Fairport, Folk Rock and Finding My Voice, 1967 - 75' is available now. Click here.
