Called ‘one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of his generation’ by The New York Times, singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson is famously the son of singer-songwriters Richard and Linda Thompson. As a kid, he listened to early rock ‘n’ roll and country music exclusively, resulting in a unique voice that is at once rock and country, then pop and folk. He has released five albums to critical acclaim and has contributed to the soundtrack of the Golden Globe and BAFTA-winning film Brokeback Mountain.
He has also collaborated on projects with Rufus and Martha Wainwright and recorded two songs for the soundtrack to the Leonard Cohen tribute I’m Your Man. He contributed two songs to the Nick Drake retrospective Way to Blue.
Support will be from Roseanne Reid – the daughter of The Proclaimers’ Craig Reid whose debut album was produced by Teddy.
