Richard Thompson @ Joe's Pub in February (more by PSquared Photography)
Folk legend and guitar hero Richard Thompson has been touring pretty much constantly since the release of his new album, Electric, back in February. As mentioned, he's doing a few shows on Wilco and Dylan's AmericanaramA tour this month (never mind he's British) and will play the Philadelphia Folk Festival on August 16. The three-day event (8/16 - 8/18) also features performances from Todd Rundgren, Asleep at the Wheel, David Bromberg and more. Tickets are on sale now.
Thompson, who played Joe's Pub in February, has also added an NYC show early this fall, playing Town Hall on September 27. Tickets to that show go VIP Package presale today at 10 AM and AmEx presale today at noon, with a general on-sale starting Friday (7/12) at noon.
