ABOUT VERLON THOMPSON
Songwriters seem to flourish on the fertile Oklahoma plains. Woody Guthrie, Roger Miller, Leon Russell, J.J. Cale and Jimmy Webb.
Add Verlon Thompson to that list.

Thirty years as a professional songwriter and traveling troubadour serve as credentials. As a solo performer, and as the trusted sidekick of Texas Americana songwriting icon Guy Clark, Verlon has viewed the world from stages everywhere from Barcelona to Binger (his hometown in Oklahoma).

Along the way Verlon Thompson compositions have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson, Dierks Bentley, Anne Murray, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Del McCoury, Sam Bush, Trisha Yearwood and many more.

Equally important in his songwriting and live performances, Verlon's guitar work cannot go unnoticed. His guitar can be heard on recordings by Restless Heart, Pam Tillis, and many more, including, and especially Guy Clark.

Verlon has co-produced Guy Clark's Grammy nominated cd "Cold Dog Soup" as well as "The Dark", "Workbench Songs" and "Somedays the Song Writes You".

As the in-house musician for Genuine Human Productions (genuinehuman.com) Thompson scores themes and background music for documentaries and special film projects.

Verlon Thompson is currently on the road. Or in the studio. Or writing in his bunkhouse on the river in Tennessee...
         ....but never far from the fertile plains of Oklahoma.

We are thrilled to have him find his way to Leamington for a special evening showcase of his talent.  Verlon will be facilitating a songwriting workshop for the week-end.  Francine Honey will be his special guest.  Verlon has been a mentor of Honey's and plays guitar and sings on Honey's upcoming Christmas album, where Honey recorded one of Verlon's original songs.  If you are not a fan of Verlon's yet, you will be a forever fan when you leave.

ABOUT FRANCINE HONEY
Hard-luck stories can have happy endings. Especially in Francine Honeys world. The bilingual Ontario singer-songwriters third album To Be Continued features tales of heartache and struggle, loss and crisis  many drawn from her own life. Along the way, the down-to-earth performer also shares two fundamental lessons: You are not alone, and hope is always around the corner. A songwriter since childhood, and a former civil servant, Francine packs a lifetime of emotion into every song. Her music has taken her across Canada and the U.S., and on to the U.K., Switzerland and Italy.
