Richard Thompson has been performing professionally and writing songs for nearly 50 years.  Starting with his work with the seminal British folk-rock band Fairport Convention, Thompson has assembled a long line of critically-acclaimed albums which feature his unique songwriting style. Rolling Stone ranked him as one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time, and his albums regularly appear in best-of lists.

During a stop in Atlanta, where he performed an all-request show for three nights at the City Winery, Thompson stopped by the WABE studios, where he spoke with Denis O'Hayer on "Morning Edition."
