RICHARD THOMPSON KICKED OFF 'GREAT GUITARS' SERIES AT THE GRAMMY MUSEUM
In March 2010, The GRAMMY Museum hosted guitar virtuoso and British folk rock icon Richard Thompson. Thompson kicked off the Museum's new "Great Guitars" series, which will regularly feature innovators, masters and thinkers around the art of guitar playing for discussion and performance.
"We are incredibly fortunate to be able to launch this new series with one of the world's most esteemed and phenomenal guitarists," said Robert Santelli, Executive Director of The GRAMMY Museum. "Richard Thompson is in a class by himself, responsible for original and ground-breaking ideas and themes to the world of rock and roots guitar."

Richard Thompson recently contributed to the soundtrack of Baraboo, a film directed/written/produced/edited by Mary Sweeney, a Professor of Screenwriting at USC.
The Baraboo soundtrack is an eclectic mix of original compositions by Joel Savoy, Emma Beaton & Chris Stafford, additional compositions by Richard Thompson, metal compositions by Riley Sweeney Lynch and Dean Hurley, and Edison recordings from the early 20th century. The Edison recordings served as an inspiration to Savoy, Beaton and Stafford, and the album includes their covers and remixes of them. Richard Thompson covers the Savoy, Beaton, Stafford compositions, with vocals by Caitlin Notey.
RT also played on two tracks for the upcoming Teddy Thompson CD, one track for the upcoming Don Henley CD, and a few tracks on Emmit Rhodes' upcoming record. Fairport Convention recorded Emitt Rhodes' song 'Time Will Show The Wiser' in 1967, and at last RT was able to meet the influential singer/multi-instrumentalist.
