Bobby Thompson

Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist Bobby Thompson is no stranger to the blues and rock world. He cut his teeth learning to play in the old blues clubs of D.C. from the likes of Bobby Parker. After honing his craft as a much sought after support man, Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing seven albums since 2011.

Hailed as one of Washington DC’s top blues musicians, Thompson strikes an energetic and seasoned balance between electric blues-rock, exemplified by his three studio albums and two live albums, along with a distinctive acoustic song-craft performance style. His acoustic emphasis on the Weissenborn lap-slide acoustic guitars sets him apart from many of his contemporaries but it’s not just his instrumental strengths that garner attention, but also his deep rootsy songwriting and dynamic vocal style.
