He’s received accolades and honors from the Americana Music Association in Nashville as well as Queen Elizabeth II in Buckingham Palace, who awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) to Thompson. His massive body of work includes over 40 albums and numerous Grammy nominations, with his songs covered by everyone from Robert Plant and Bonnie Raitt to Los Lobos and Tom Jones.
As he returns to the Avalon stage for the first time since 2006, Thompson is showing no signs of slowing down. His recently released CD, “Still”, was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and has reached #6 in the UK charts (just ahead of Taylor Swift)!
Folk multi-instrumentalist Sam Amidon will open the show.
