On Saturday, February 2nd, 2008 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as "IMAC") in Huntington, Long Island will present an evening with folk rock legend Richard Thompson as he presents his original show "1000 Years of Popular Music".

Richard Thompson, the iconic British folk rock legend, is bringing his original show "1000 Years of Popular Music" to IMAC Theater. The story behind the project is that Thompson was asked by Playboy to list the 10 greatest songs of the past millennium. Thompson took the request quite literally and delivered 10 choices covering the entire last thousand years. While the list was passed over for publication, it gave birth to this performance concept, which Thompson has given his own beautiful treatment. The show features accompanists Judith Owen (keyboards, vocals) and Debra Dobkins (percussion, vocals). In the show, Thompson has been known to include "Summer is Icumen In", the oldest known song in the English language, and continues through time from ballads, sea shanties, British Music Hall, Broadway tunes, garage rock and even Britney Spears. Rolling Stone says "this show proves two things: Richard Thompson can play anything, from thirteenth- century rounds and ballads to Squeeze and Abba; and can he make anything rock."

Tickets for this performance are $50.00 ($37.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
