From the venue:Listed in Rolling Stone magazineâ€™s â€œ100 Greatest Guitaristsâ€ list (at No. 69), Thompson has earned his honors one note at a time. From his early Brit-Folk days with Fairport Convention, the groundbreaking duet albums with ex-wife Linda Thompson, and now with a power trio, he blends traditional and contemporary styles like nobody else. It is a sure thing that on this tour Atlanta will get some pre-release exposure to the songs on his upcoming album, Still, produced by Jeff Tweedy. Thompsonâ€™s concerts are always a treat, a mix of hard rock, acoustic ballads, and the wittiest stage banter in the business.
