INTERVIEW: MONTEREY COUNTY WEEKLY - Endless Riffness
5/9/2013 (updated 5/9/2013)

After more than four decades, Richard Thompson’s songwriting remains sharper than ever.

You have to be able to see musical opportunities on the horizon, or just around the corner, which keeps me still touring and recording. The possibilities are intriguing. On a good night, you get into a zone with the other musicians and that’s what you hope happens. The music flows and you're not really thinking about it. Sometimes you can switch off and go outside yourself and observe things flowing. We're improvising all the time - there are set parts and arrangements, but once we're on stage, pretty much anything can happen. - RT

The Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Matt the Electrician perform at 8pm, Wednesday, May 15, at the Golden State Theatre, 417 Alvarado St., Monterey.
