Richard Thompson's long-acclaimed guitar work—piercing, delicate, often both at once—has earned him a Top 20 spot on Rolling Stone's list of Best Guitarists of All Time, as well as MOJO magazine’s Les Paul Award and the 2012 Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award, presented to him by Bonnie Raitt. He is also the recipient of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), bestowed upon him by Queen Elizabeth for service to music. His latest album, "Electric," has been praised for its "power, poignancy and point of view... Forty-five years into a versatile and incomparable career, he still writes songs that sting and storm."
