Richard Thompson – Café de la Danse (Paris) – 6th, February 2011

Amazing show of Richard Thompson (voice, guitar) plus his band of four musicians (bass, drums, violin, horns). Two sets, the 1st based on recent “Dream Attic” LP which did our Best of 2010 and a second set with “all their hits” as he said. Nice guy, full of humour and with a great contact with the audience, which was mainly British and in their fifties. On top of that, one the best guitar player I have ever seen live.

Richard Thompson was the key force within the legendary English band Fairport Convention (very strong influence on band such as Midlake for instance) and has been doing solo records for more than 30 years.
