Richard Thompson to take audience requests at Montalvo

Singer-songwriter and guitar virtuoso Richard Thompson — known for his pioneering efforts with Fairport Convention, his work with his former wife Linda Thompson and as a solo artist whose songs have been covered by Elvis Costello, David Byrne and Emmylou Harris — is playing a three-night run at Montalvo Arts Center that’s something rare and special: He’ll perform from an all-request, audience-selected set list.

While “three nights of request shows … [pose] tremendous problems for the artist … [it affords] some amusement and confusion for the audience,” Thompson says.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Montalvo Arts Center, Carriage House Theatre, 15400 Montalvo Road, Saratoga. Tickets are $30 to $35. Call (408) 961-5858 or visit www.ticketmaster.com
