Cost: Free. You don't need to book.
Location: Tiakiwai Auditorium (lower ground floor), National Library, corner Molesworth and Aitken Streets, Thorndon

A New Zealand folk and blues music veteran, Chris Thompson is internationally recognised for his masterful guitar playing and original songs. He has released numerous albums, and toured with many singers and musicians including Julie Felix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, and John Hanlon. His songs have been covered by, among others, US psych-folk musicians Meg Baird and Robin Pecknold (Fleet Foxes). Join us for this free concert on the occasion of Chris’s latest release, the EP Woodsheddin’.

About Chris Thompson
Chris Thompson began performing as a teenager in Hamilton during the late 1960s, before finding success in the Auckland music scene. In 1970, already recognised as an accomplished fingerstyle guitarist, he moved to the UK to tour with Julie Felix, soon becoming part of the London and Dublin folk music scenes. His 1973 debut album on the Village Thing label, Chris Thompson, has since been acclaimed as a lost psychedelic folk classic and been reissued several times since 2001. Based back in New Zealand from the mid-1970s, Thompson has gone on to release over 20 albums, including as a duo with his former wife Lynne. His songs are notable contributions to the international folksong repertoire and capture a strong New Zealand perspective.
