Richard F. Thompson assumes the position…

Richard Thompson seated with Bob Webster of WAMU Bluegrass Country at IBMA 2008…of editor at British Bluegrass News.

We have been privileged to publish much of Richard’s writing here on Bluegrass Today this past few years, and congratulate both he and the British Bluegrass Music Association, who publishes BBN, for his being elevated to the editor’s desk.

Richard was a former editor in the mid 1990s, and has been serving recently as Features Editor of the quarterly magazine.

Thompson says that his plan is brandish the editor’s pencil more so than the author’s…

“I am hoping to actually reduce the amount that I write for the magazine, aiming to gather together a pool of quality writers to contribute stories on an occasional basis.”

Interested writers can reach Richard by email.
