We are delighted to announce a special headline solo concert with the legendary Folk and Rock guitarist, singer and songwriter as part of the Summer Festival on Monday 26th August in the stunning setting of St Mary’s church Rye.

Richard Thompson is one of this country’s greatest songwriters and most distinctive guitar virtuoso, capable of breathtaking drama and sublime delicacy, prompting Rolling Stone to hail him as ‘a perennial dark-horse contender for the title of greatest living rock guitarist.’ His songs have been covered by everyone from Alison Krauss to Robert Plant.

He launched his career by co-founding trailblazing folk rock outfit Fairport Convention and was responsible for igniting the British Folk Rock movement.

“The finest Rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix” Los Angeles Times

“Like Hendrix, he’s his own genre, one of the major virtuoso’s of our time” Glide

“It’s Thompson at his absolute best” No Depression

“Richard Thompson is a bonafide legend” Uproxx

Tickets for this intimate solo concert will be in high demand so book early to avoid disappointment.
