One of the World's Most Critically
Acclaimed Songwriters

Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time. Richard Thompson is also one of the world's most critically acclaimed songwriters. Robert Plant, REM, Elvis Costello, Los Lobos, David Byrne, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt and many others have recorded his work. His genre-defying mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar, along with his dizzying energy and onstage wit continue to earn Richard Thompson a place as one of the most distinctive and iconoclastic virtuosos in rock history. Not to be missed!


Richard Thompson is presented by Whistling Swan Productions.

BABIES - All ages must have a ticket to enter.
CHILDREN - Recommended for ages 9 and older.

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
