Richard Thompson is well known and respected on the Southern African music circuit. Best known for his complete disregard of conventional time keeping (sometimes playing up to 4 hours with no break) his repertoire is incredibly vast and diverse, ranging from jazz, to blues, rock & roll, contemporary pop, country rock, classic country, reggae, heavy metal – every music genre. Richard is an extremely talented and versatile guitarist – in fact – there’s probably little or nothing he can’t do. One of his trademarks is his ability and complete willingness to play almost any request received from his audience. Richard has been active in the music industry for many years and done extensive studio work both as a session musician and vocalist. He was one of the original members of the Irish band Leprechauns, touring all of Zimbabwe and South Africa with them. He has played with Dad’s Army, Third Eye, Mello & Jive, Georgia, Lance James, and most of South Africa’s top entertainers. Richard has recently returned from the UAE where he performed for almost a decade. Richard can offer you solo work, and give you a band option too, adding more top musicians to the entourage to suit any event or function. Always willing to go the extra mile, Richard is welcomed back wherever he performs.
