Streaming Options!

Many of our shows this season will be available to attend remotely. Streaming tickets cost the same as a ticket to attend in-person, but you can watch with as many friends as you can safely fit on your couch! We are working to confirm the streaming option with performers. As we confirm a streaming icon will appear on that shows ticketing page. Streaming tickets must be purchased individually as their own transaction for each ticket, so to view two different streaming shows you must complete two separate transactions.

"The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix."

--Los Angeles Times


In 2017, Ivor Novello Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated legend Richard Thompson gave himself up to the music itself. Picking up a guitar, emotions echoed through his deft fleet-fingered fretwork, poetic songwriting, impassioned picking. Those transmissions comprise his nineteenth solo album, 13 Rivers.


In many ways, his career has pointed towards such a statement. Powered by evocative songcraft, jaw-dropping guitar playing, and indefinable spirit, this venerable icon holds a coveted spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and counts a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association in Nashville, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BBC Awards among his many accolades. 2011 saw Thompson garner an OBE (Order of the British Empire) personally bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Moreover, Time touted his anthem, “1952 Vincent Black Lightning,” on its “100 Greatest Songs Since 1923” list.


Thompson’s influence can’t be overstated. Everybody from Robert Plant, Don Henley, and Elvis Costello to REM, Sleater-Kinney and David Byrne has covered his music.
