On June 30 Shout! Factory will pay tribute to the legendary Richard Thompson with a career-spanning 4-CD box set, Walking On A Wire: Richard Thompson (1968-2009). Thompson has had an illustrious career that stretches back over 40 years. Songs from every Richard Thompson album are represented on Walking On A Wire, beginning with the trail-blazing folk-rock group Fairport Convention, of which he was a founding member as a teenager, to his duo albums with then-wife Linda Thompson, as well as his 20 plus years as a critically acclaimed solo artist. Thompson will tour the US and UK this spring and summer.
