Singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson may only have one CD to his name, but the Thompson name has been a major force in folk music since the 1960s. Teddy's father, Richard, formed the seminal folk rock band Fairport Convention, then later paired with Teddy's mother, Linda, to record six acclaimed albums. The pair divorced shortly after recording their last record, which eerily previewed the breakup. Teddy Thompson was just 7 at the time; he talks with Frank about his debut CD, the inspiration behind the music, and the effects of growing up in the English folk tradition.
