About Richard Thompson 

Richard Thompson was born in West London, surrounded by a family with wide musical tastes. Counted among his early influences are Django Reinhardt, Fats Waller, Les Paul, and Jimmy Shand. Flip the coin from his father's jazz record collection to the early rock  'n'  roll music made available to him through his elder sister, including Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis' Great Balls of Fire, and the eclectic diversity of his multi-generational career becomes clear.

From his teenage years as a founding member of the pioneering British band Fairport Convention, through the enduring partnership of folk-rock duo Richard and Linda Thompson, to more than 25 years as a solo artist -- Richard Thompson's massive body of work includes 40 albums and numerous film soundtracks. Richard has earned many of the industry's most coveted awards including the Mojo Les Paul Award, the Orville H Gibson Award (guitar) and an Ivor Novello Award (songwriting). His genre-defying mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar, along with his dizzying energy and onstage wit continue to earn Richard Thompson generations of new fans and a place as one of the most distinctive and iconoclastic virtuosos in rock history.

About Kris Delmhorst

"A tour de force of singing, writing and production that gains in richness with each repetition." -- Performing Songwriter

"The album is an assured model of sophisticated songwriting and heartfelt musicianship." --
Boston Globe

A former member of Redbird (with Peter Mulvey and husband Jeffrey Foucault), Delmhorst approached one of her best recordings, Shotgun Singer, with a decidedly lo-fi method. She isolated herself in a  rural cabin with minimal recording gear and a houseful of instruments. Then she added some layers, "like an oil painting," she says. Delmhorst's voice has been described as "wine deep and honey bright." Never predictable, her Strange Conversation recording turned moldering poets like Rumi, e.e. cummings and Walt Whitman into modern songs. Her 2011 Cars featured songs from that band's catalog, reinterpreted.
