In 2002, Thompson played a key role in drawing his mother out of a 17-year musical retirement to record her landmark disc Fashionably Late, which he played on and co-produced.

In 2008, Thompson released the upbeat and highly acclaimed, A Piece of What You Need, which was declared “one of this year’s best” by The Guardian and debuted at #9 in the UK’s pop charts. A fifth album, Bella, was released February 2011 to much acclaim and led to touring the world with Elton John.

 

In 2014 Thompson gathered his musical clan to release Family, one of the folk records of the year which garnered a multi page, in depth piece from The New York Times.

This is an unusual opportunity to hear Teddy Thompson perform in a small venue. 

Support comes from Jess McAllister who plays free-spirited, nostalgic folk, rock and pop. Switching between electric guitar, banjo and piano, her vocals “leap from fragility to soaring strength that will send all your hairs heavenwards” (FRUK)
