The world British singer-songwriter Richard Thompson creates is so vivid it feels as if you're in the company of the characters he chronicles: bikers, schoolyard bullies, dreamers, lovers and losers.

For nearly four decades, Thompson has performed and recorded a wide variety of music, from traditional folk songs to rock-and roll.

His latest effort is Front Parlour Ballads, a mostly acoustic work recorded in a small studio in his garage.
