“Teddy Thompson was the driving force behind the album Family in which “One of the rules was that every instrument must be played by a family member, so all that you hear is us.” Two of those family members were Teddy’s parents Richard and Linda Thompson. Here Teddy, sister Kami Thompson and nephew Zak Hobbs share a song from Family.”

Thompson is not just a writer of fine songs but a diplomatic genius. It’s over 30 years since the very public break-up of Richard and Linda Thompson, once the finest folk duo in the country, but their son has encouraged a musical reconciliation. Six years ago he persuaded his parents to join him at a memorable Christmas benefit for Amnesty International, and last month saw the release of the Thompson Family album, produced by Teddy and including both Richard and Linda, along with Teddy’s brother Jack, sister Kami and her husband James Walbourne (aka the Rails), his brother Rob, and nephew Zak Hobbs.
