Richard Thompson's 'Sweet Warrior'
Guitarist and singer/songwriter Richard Thompson might be considered a cult artist — not widely known, but critically adored. He was a founding member of the vastly influential British folk band Fairport Convention. He has released more than 40 albums, including a few classics.
Thompson's new album is called Sweet Warrior.
