In a career spanning over 45 years, pianist and clarinetist Butch Thompson has earned a world-wide reputation as a traditional jazz and ragtime master. He tours widely as a soloist or at the helm of any of his several ensembles, including his well-known Butch Thompson Trio, his eight-piece Jazz Originals band, the Butch Thompson Big Three, or his unique blues duo with fingerstyle guitarist Pat Donohue. Widely known for his 12-year stint as house pianist on public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, where the Butch Thompson Trio was the house band, he continues on the show as a frequent guest. Among Thompson’s many recordings are his acclaimed 10-volume solo series on Daring/Rounder, the 1997 Grammy-winning Verve release Doc Cheatham and Nicholas Payton., and his latest release, the critically acclaimed duo CD Vicksburg Blues with guitarist Pat Donohue.
