LIVE MUSIC – Bobby Thompson

June 28, 2019 @ 8:00 pm 11:00 pm

Bobby Thompson carries out the tradition, of blues and folk music, without mimicking, but with solid interpretation and writing. People like Taj Mahal, John Hammond Jr., and Mississippi John Hurt are top-shelf in his vinyl catalog. Lightnin’ Hopkins and Townes Van Zandt were friends. Bob Dylan sang blues songs. Blues music and folk music are close relatives. That’s the tradition he wants to continue in with his songwriting and performances. 

He began his musical journey early on, following in his sisters footsteps by taking piano lessons, and then picking up the guitar. His uncle encouraged him to play electric guitar in his teens, and he never stopped. Over the years, he studied at both the academic level, and the street level, learning the ins and outs of what it means to put on a show that people will remember. 

Lately, as far as his solo career goes, Bobby Thompson, has been putting the acoustic guitar first. He truly enjoys the gentler side of playing Weissenborns and other acoustics, both solo and as a duo. His new EP ‘The Acoustic Sessions’ is now available.
