Recipient of a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award, Mojos Les Paul Award and curator of the prestigious Meltdown Festival at the Southbank in 2010, Thompson was most recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting by the Americana Music Association.
Thompson says of his fellow trio members: 'Michael Jerome has been with me for about 12 years. He's actually from Texas; he is a great musician, able to respond to anything that's put in front of him. Taras Prodaniuk worked a lot with Dwight Yoakam, and more recently with Lucinda Williams. His roots may be in country music, but he's another extremely gifted and versatile musician.'
