Event Details

Fayetteville Roots presents a solo acoustic performance by Richard Thompson with opener Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster (solo) at the Faulkner Performing Arts Center on the University of Arkansas campus on November 20, 2021.

An English singer-songwriter, Thompson first gained prominence in the late 1960s and has been performing ever since. The Los Angeles Times called Thompson, “The finest rock songwriter after Dylan and the best electric guitarist since Hendrix.” Thompson holds a coveted spot on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association in Nashville, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the BBC Awards. Thompson’s influence cannot be overstated, with musicians from Robert Plant, Don Henley, and Elvis Costello to REM, Sleater-Kinney and David Byrne covering his music.

The opening act, Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster, is a nationally-touring musician based in Fayetteville, whose solo albums include Constant Stranger and Take Heart, Take Care.
