Celebrate Brooklyn! The Richard Thompson Band / Ollabelle

The iconic British folk rocker RICHARD THOMPSON, here in a rare NYC appearance with his full band, delivers fearsome vocals and "guitar breaks so audacious it's like watching a highwire walker swinging in the wind but never falling off." (The Guardian UK) Drawing from a deep well of gospel, blues, bluegrass, and country influences, OLLABELLE creates a "rich, cross-referential take on American roots music." (Paste Magazine)
