"Not only is Roly Thompson a genuinely nice and
kind hearted man, but one of those people one rarely meets that exude
wisdom, experience and fortitude. Watching Roly perform, as Singer
Songwriter, courageous story-teller and gifted harmonica player, one has
no choice but to live in the moment as you are captured by his presence,
humor and spirit on stage.
Roly has a list of artistic, inventive and mechanical skills a mile long -
mentor, teacher and father - he’s lead a full life, and music has always
been by his side. With nearly 50 years of music under his belt, its no wonder
Roly sounds the way he does - warm, full and mesmorising.
His celebration of life through song takes you on a journey from laughter to
heartbreak as his familiar, ringing melodies echo life experiences, memories
A veteran in the Western Canadian music business, Roly has been re-inspired
to pursue a journey to carry on his dream as a Singer/Songwriter and performer
full time, across the country." Carla Olive, “Tabitha”: - Calgary 2011
