VARIOUS ARTISTS A Thompson Family Christmas (2008)

A Thompson Family Christmas
Queen Elizabeth Hall, December 17, 2008

The excellent December 17th BBC Radio 2 broadcast of A Thompson Family Christmas, or – as ringleader Teddy Thompson states before the final group performance – “a family moment which happens once every 30 years or so.”
Fine performances by all involved, including family, friends and a rare reunion (of sorts) of Richard & Linda Thompson. Also features Kamila Thompson, Bert Jansch, Chris Difford, Katherine Williams, Ed Harcourt, Justin Bond, Brendan Campbell, Jenni Muldaur and Rachel Unthank & The Winterset. Listen to Richard Thompson’s “Cutty Wren,” below.
