We're delighted that Richard Thompson will be making his first Green Man appearance this year - details to follow. And Howlin' Rain (featuring members of Comets On Fire and Sunburned Hand of the Man) have also just said yes.
Although Richard Thompson's back catalogue is huge, I really hope he plays 'down where the drunkards roam' just love that song, also Howlin Rain could be the surprise highlight of the festival if anyone witnessed Sunburned Hand of the Man in GM2006..... they will know exactly what i mean.
Hope it's Richard on his own or with Danny Thompson. I've seen him a few times and much prefer his solo sets to full-band sets where the subtelty tens to get lost. Good chance he'll do 'Drunkards', he's not averse to dipping way back into his back catalogue.
The right to bear arms is only slightly less ludicrous than the right to arm bears.

Thompson is good news, do you reckon he will be topping the Main Stage? I could see him headlining, yet if that was the case I'd have thought they would announce him as such (like with SFA.) All together now "...shove 'em in a babies....shove 'em in a babies..!"
I'll check out Howlin' Rain and get back to you...
Drive-by Truckers are just a great, great live band - I've seen them many times and they get better each time. Haven't seen the new line-up yet but I've no doubt they'll be a festival highlight (for me & Mrs Dirtyboy at least!) It was the announcement that they're playing that convinced me to grab tickets although with Iron & Wine, Beirut and Howlin' Rain on the bill, you can't lose!
All of the noise takes me to the outside where there's all Creations joining in celebrating happiness and joy
