294. Richard Thompson

Whether it was with the Fairport Convention, his wife Linda or on his own, Richard Thompson has been credited with the creation of some of the most beautiful Folk music to come out of Britain. His career once he left Fairport, while not as significant, may have been more critically revered. Thompson is rightfully a legend in Britain, but without an impact in the American marketplace he will fall in the same chasm as many other Brits on this list.
