Paul Thompson – Lone Star Tour – Live at Thrive, Cambridge

An intimate evening of live literature and heart-felt acoustic music, at Thrive Vegan Cafe, Cambridge.

  • 21st June 2022 - 21st June 2022
  • 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Paul Thompson is a singer-songwriter and author from Norfolk. He has toured in the UK, Europe, the US and Canada, and holds a Guinness World Record for ‘the longest journey by electric milk float’, after touring over 1,000 miles at 15mph to the Edinburgh Fringe, in his solar-powered milk float stage ‘Bluebell’.


Paul’s latest album release ‘Lone Star’ includes a specially written book of short-stories, based on the songs from the album. Described by Acoustic Magazine as ‘blissed out Donovan meets John Martyn’, Paul’s live show combines music, literature, and tales of the ups and downs (and breakdowns!) of life on the road in an electric milk float.


Paul will be supported by Kitty-May Hayes, a young singer-songwriter from Suffolk. Kitty-May is already attracting music-industry attention, with appearances at Latitude, Wild Paths Festival, and air-play on BBC Introducing.


Prepare to be floated!
