"THIS AIN'T NO MOUSE MUSIC!" World Premiere was at SXSW Film Festival.
Richard Thompson, Bonnie Raitt, Ry Cooder, and other musicians talk about how Strachwitz and the music he recorded influenced them.
"Thompson’s rampaging guitar runs manage to never sound overtly indulgent yet glisten and glide. There’s a seamless elegance to the man’s guitar style - it really could be no one else on that stage, beret cocked to one side, Stratocaster tilting to the folk-funk rhythms. Richard Thompson provided an effortless masterclass in songwriting and guitar technique but above all, graceful, humble acknowledgment of his own outrageous talent." - Colm McAuliffe, music OMH

"After the main set is brought to a close, Thompson returns for the obligatory encores that include a classic power trio version of 'Hey Joe', that even Jimi himself would have been proud of." - Greg Belton, The Digital Fix
