“The British folk-rock musician has a reputation as one of the best guitarists of all time, but in Sydney he proved his skills as a songwriter shine equally bright,” said The Guardian following the guitar hero’s performance Down Under earlier his year. Thompson has been writing and performing since the 1960s, when he co-founded Fairport Convention, and has earned himself an Ivor Novello Award, a lifetime achievement award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and an OBE. Acoustic Classics, his 2014 collection of newly recorded songs, “serves as a fitting showcase for not only Thompson’s undeniable skills as a virtuoso guitarist, but also as a phenomenal songwriter capable of deftly tapping into a wealth of human emotions” (PopMatters).
