Bobby Thompson Trio

Saturday, April 20, 2019, 4:00 AM

I want to carry on 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 my 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 I want to continue in with my songwriting and performances. I began my musical journey early on, following in my sisters footsteps by taking piano lessons, and then picking up the guitar. My uncle encouraged me to play electric guitar in my teens, and I never stopped. Over the years, I 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 my solo career goes, I've been putting the acoustic guitar first, and leaving the electric sounds for Revelator Hill, the touring rock band. I truly enjoy the gentler side of playing Weissenborns and other acoustics, both solo and as a duo. My new EP 'The Acoustic Sessions' will be available September 2018, and I plan to embark on solo tour dates, wherever the road will take me.
