After a break of over a decade Richard F. Thompson has rejoined the editorial team of British Bluegrass News (BBN). Following the recent re-organization of the British Bluegrass Music Association (BBMA), Richard has taken on the role of Features Editor of the association’s quarterly magazine.
He has introduced new features to BBN, including Favourites and The Story Behind The Song, and plans to introduce a column called Light In The Window, in which there will be a brief review of CDs that cross his desk.
Thompson, who will serve as Press Relations officer for the BBMA, is a founding member of the BBMA and has been a member of the IBMA for over 20 years. He sometimes writes under the name bluegrassmercury.
He has also been a valuable contributor to Bluegrass Today this past two years, and has been known to refer to himself as “the other Richard Thompson,” i.e., not his fellow Brit with the same name who wrote Del McCoury’s mega-hit, 1952 Vincent Black Lightning.
Richard welcomes correspondence at the following address:
14 Lime Grove
England, WS13 6ER.
