Verlon Thompson and Friends in Concert

'A joyful gathering and sharing of songs'

Verlon Thompson returns to the St Margarets stage in 2022.  

"A few years ago I led a week-long songwriting workshop in Scotland. Our lodging and classroom was the beautiful Kincardine Castle on the River Dee west of Aberdeen. When we weren't strolling the beautiful estate or eating like kings and queens we managed to get down to the business of songwriting and honing our craft. But the most beautiful magic was when we gathered with the talented and gracious musicians from the area.

  The music we shared in the great room of the castle, the pubs, churches and was all so beautifully spontaneous and joyful that I couldn't stop thinking about it when I returned to Tennessee. There were lots of pictures and cell phone recordings of these gatherings but I found myself wishing I had better documented those beautiful moments. So..Scotland, I'm coming back!

   I'm returning in 2022 with another group of songwriters, but this time I'm bringing an award winning documentary filmmaker, who also just happens to be my beautiful wife (she should get an award for that as well!). With plans to enlist an agile and professional sound engineer to follow us around, I hope to recapture some of the magic and music that followed me home...and has never stopped calling me back."

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.
