Richard Thompson Concert Perthshire Scotland

Richard Thompson, 22 January 2009, Perth Concert Hall, Perth 7.30pm. Richard Thompson's fantastic project takes a journey through 1000 Years of Popular Music. This grew from a request to submit a list of the greatest songs of the Millennium. Displaying his trademark humour in the selection of songs, Thompson takes you on a succinct journey from the ballads of the early middle ages, through more modern songs originally made known by artists as varied as Nat King Cole, Nelly Furtado, Gilbert & Sullivan and The Who. Thompson's uncanny genius is evident in his astonishing guitar technique which sees him juggling simultaneous lead, rhythm, and bass parts on the same six strings. Bringing his personal slant to all the songs he presents an eccentric view of the last 1000 years of songwriting that subtly makes the point that songs are good whatever century they are from. Accompanying Thompson on this tour are Judith Owen (vocals, piano) and Debra Dobkin (percussion, vocals). Admission - Tickets £20 (Concessions £16). Contact - Perth Concert Hall, Telephone - 01738 621031.
