Teddy Thompson Brings the Sounds of New York to Le Bois

Saturday, May 14, at Boise Contemporary Theater

Boise Contemporary Theater will help bring the Big Apple to Boise when it hosts musician Teddy Thompson, a singer/songwriter who frequently plays around his hometown of New York City.

Originally born in London, Thompson is the son of notable Brit folksters Richard and Linda Thompson. He plays a contemporary blend of folk and rock. In addition to having tracks featured in films like 40 Days and 40 Nights and Brokeback Mountain, Thompson has collaborated with a number of his famous folk friends like Garth Hudson from The Band, and Rufus and Martha Wainwright.

Thompson recently finished his fifth studio album, Bella, which is the nucleus of his new tour. The album is produced by David Kahne, who has worked with A-list acts like Paul McCartney and Regina Spektor. Bella takes listeners through the emotional beginnings and even more emotional ends of a relationship.

With each new album release, Thompson moves closer to becoming a household name--and closer to sky-high ticket prices for his tours in the future. Don't miss this opportunity to get an affordable bite of the Big Apple's music scene, because if you wait until next year, you might as well fuh-getta-bout-it.
