Richard Thompson

When: Sat., Aug. 1, 8 p.m. 2015

At 66, singer-guitarist Richard Thompson is still a force to be reckoned with. Yet another masterpiece, his new album, "Still," opts for a starker sound, something that's apparent from the opening number "She Could Never Resist a Winding Road," a simple sound that starts with nothing more than Thompson's gruff vocals and a gently strummed guitar riff. The somber ballad has a real sadness to it. Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, who produced the album, lets Thompson have his way as songs generally stretch past the four-minute mark. Tonight's show will be an acoustic solo affair. (Niesel)
