RICHARD THOMPSON: LIVE Q&A WITH JOE BOYD
Use it to
Rough Trade are very excited to present this Interactive Live Stream Q&A with the legendary Richard Thompson joined by special guest host Joe Boyd for an intimate in-conversation. This event celebrates the release of 'Beeswing: Fairport, Folk Rock and Finding My Voice, 1967 - 75', the new book published by Faber.
Beeswing is the autobiography from world-renowned artist Richard Thompson, co-founder of the legendary folk rock group Fairport Convention.
Richard Thompson came of age at an extraordinary moment in British culture. It was 1967 and popular music was reflecting a wide range of influences. In the midst of this musical awakening, eighteen-year-old guitarist Thompson co-founded legendary folk rock group Fairport Convention and helped them to invent a new genre of music.
Going back to his childhood and reflecting on this heady period of personal creative intensity, Thompson details life on the road, his relationship with bandmate Sandy Denny, playing alongside Jimi Hendrix and Nick Drake, a devastating car crash, his partnership with his ex-wife Linda, and his personal spiritual journey from esoteric bookshops to extraordinary meetings with saints in Morocco.
Beeswing is the intimate memoir of a British musical legend.
