GIG REVIEW: FINANCIAL TIMES - RT Trio, Barbican Hall, London

Richard Thompson Trio, Barbican Hall, London

Thompson mixes timeless rural tragedies with electrifying guitar meditations, but this concert was more Hendrix than Hardy...

The full Richard Thompson experience reached its apogee on "Can't Win". While Prodaniuk kept the beat steady and powerful and Thompson played sheets of guitar so high up the frets his hands were knocking together, Jerome took extended jazzy excursions, now crouching up to thunder all over his waist-level kit, now dropping into a minimal tap on the chorus rather than hammering the beat home.
