WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Richard Thompson's annual concert has long since become a McCarter tradition. Over a career that now spans 40 years, this singer/songwriter/guitarist has created a body of work (40 albums and over 400 songs) unsurpassed in its sheer musical invention, emotional precision, and diversity, earning Grammy nominations and tribute albums galore. So it's not so surprising that he's been called the finest rock songwriter since Bob Dylan and is a perennial dark-horse contender for the title of greatest living rock guitarist (Rolling Stone).
