Richard Thompson - Live At Celtic Connection (DVD/Blu-ray)

Filmed in January 2011 at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow as part of the annual Celtic Connections festival, this superb performance by the Richard Thompson Band marks their first live concert DVD release for five years.

The first half of the show focuses on Thompson's latest Dream Attic album with the second half given over to songs reaching back as far as his first solo album Henry The Human Fly and up to recent releases such as Sweet Warrior and The Old Kit Bag. Thompson's distinctive voice and unmistakable guitar style are well to the fore and his band are as good as it gets. This is a must have purchase for any Richard Thompson fan. Available on DVD and Blu-ray and at iTunes video.

Bonus Features: Two tracks filmed at the 2011 Cambridge Folk Festival: 1) Uninhabited Man 2) Johnny's Far Away

Line-up: Richard Thompson (guitar, vocals); Michael Jerome (drums); Taras Prodaniuk (bass); Joel Zifkin (violin, mandolin); Pete Zorn (guitars, flute, saxophone, mandolin)
