Danny Thompson

Among the most eclectic and accomplished bassists in recorded music, Daniel Henry Edward Thompson’s career reads akin to a who’s who of legendary artists: John Martyn, Richard Thompson, Nick Drake, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Donovan, Rod Stewart, Tim Buckley, Roy Orbison, and Alexis Korner to cite an extremely select few.

A founding member of British jazz-folk icons Pentangle, Thompson plies his craft on “Victoria” – an upright built in 1865, and “Alfie” a more recent instrument. 

In addition to his high-profile career as a sideman and collaborator, Thompson has waxed several sides under his own name.
