Listen: Richard Thompson Electric Trio
Want a weekend long listen? Check out this expansive set from the Richard Thompson Electric Trio, captured during August at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival in England. It’s a career-spanning show, stretching to rarities from the early days of Fairport Convention and through his work with Linda onward to his solo albums, including this year’s great 13 Rivers. There’s a gorgeous “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” and a seething “The Rattle Within.” Stream it, and see Richard at Big Ears 2019.
