Just spotted on the FC website that they're playing at the Bacon Theatre in Cheltenham on 12th October.  Coincidentally, I was at Dean Close School (which includes the theatre) last Sunday - it was HQ for a charity cycle ride.

Shall I get 2 tickets on the off-chance I can persuade my wife to go?  Roll Eyes

I’m sure that your powers of persuasion will work!

Oh, hadn't seen that.  Thanks for alerting me!

Wonder if these will be 'acoustic' shows, or full band ones?

Can’t get to Cropredy this year, but I’m looking forward to catching the lads at Sidmouth on August 2nd.  Anyone else going?  A bit too close to the main event I expect.

Apart from a brief mention in the Listening To thread, it appears to have surprisingly passed this forum by that Richard Thompson has a new album, titled 13 Rivers, released on 14 September.

To be fair, that date is 2 months away.

Indeed but usually these sort of things get a bit of a fanfare and generate a bit of excitement around here when the press release comes out, which it did either yesterday or the day before.

There's an RT autobiography being written too - out at the end of next year on Faber. Titled 'Beeswing: Britain, Folk Rock and the End of the 60s '.

From Faber website

Quote
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Beeswing: Britain, Folk Rock and the End of the 60s by celebrated guitarist and singer-songwriter Richard Thompson.
 

‘The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix’ – Los Angeles Times

 
 Due for publication Autumn 2019, Beeswing is a memoir of musical discovery, personal revelation, and social history written by Richard Thompson with journalist and Culture Crash author Scott Timberg.

‘It was an extraordinary time, and it was great to be in London at the centre of everything,’ says Thompson of the years in which he played with musicians as different as Jimi Hendrix and Nick Drake. ‘It was a crossroads of so many styles – Indian music and the blues and psychedelia together with multi-track recording. It was like going from postwar black and white to Technicolor.’

Thompson will describe how this intense and fertile time also led to a spiritual crisis both personal and culture-wide. His conversion to Sufi mysticism, the legendary partnership with wife Linda, years of musical experimentation, and some of the saddest and most emotionally resonant songs in pop-music history.

Named by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 20 Guitarists of All Time, Richard Thompson has received Lifetime Achievement Awards for Songwriting on both sides of the Atlantic. From the Americana Music Association in Nashville to Britain’s BBC Awards as well as the prestigious Ivor Novello. In 2011, Thompson received an OBE. Having co-founded the groundbreaking group Fairport Convention as a teenager in the sixties, he and his bandmates virtually invented British folk rock. By the age of twenty-one Thompson had left Fairport to pursue his own career, followed by a decade long musical partnership with his then-wife Linda, then followed by over thirty years as a highly successful solo artist. Thompson’s songs have been recorded by Robert Plant, Elvis Costello, REM, Bonnie Raitt, Tom Jones, David Byrne, Don Henley and many others.

Radio 4 just broadcast a piece about the search, off Brittany, for 2 Tudor era warships, the Regent and La Cordeliere... The latter name rang a bell, and there on the chaps' Fame and Glory album is the track Marie La Cordeliere, from Alan Simon's Anne de Bretagne concept.

Little oddity yesterday, listening to Jazz FM on that car radio and the Ric Sanders Trio pop up with a song called Louis Collins.

What with Ashley and Jude's books, not to mention volumes from Dylan, Keith Richards, Joe Boyd and Nick Mason, it seems to me that those who were *really* there in the 60s do remember...
