This week, Mountain Stage is looking back at a few of the relatives who've appeared on the program over the last 26 years.

Richard and Linda Thompson are former partners in life and on the stage, and they've both appeared on Mountain Stage accompanied by their son, Teddy Thompson.

The set opens with Richard performing "Bathsheba Smiles" from October 1994 and another signature track, "Persuasion," recorded in April 2001.

Teddy leads a duet with his mother in "Evona Darling," a song that wasn't heard on the radio edition of this show, before Linda leads a performance of Richard's "Dimming of the Day" from 2002.

In 2006, Teddy Thompson brought his band to Mountain Stage with songs from his solo CD, Separate Ways. This segment includes two songs from that appearance.
