Teddy Thompson and Jenni Muldaur, along with producer David Mansfield, have spent the spring and summer recording the classic duets of Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, and Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn. Join them as they perform those tunes and more, live at Guild Hall on September 2.

 Teddy Thompson is an acclaimed singer-songwriter, the only son of British folk-rock legends Richard and Linda Thompson. NPR proclaims that he’s “the musical equivalent of an arrow to the heart,” while The New York Times calls his work “beautifully finessed.

Singer-songwriter, arranger, and producer Jenni Muldaur grew up in a music-intensive environment as the daughter of folk icons Geoff and Maria Muldaur, who both played a crucial part in the ‘60’s folk revival. As well as recording solo albums, she has performed and recorded with Lou Reed, David Byrne, Marianne Faithful, Steely Dan, Ronnie Spector, Eric Clapton and many others. She is a resident of Springs and loves being a part of this incredible artist community on the East End. 

Concessions are available at our new eAT Coffee Bar.

  • Teddy Thompson

    Teddy Thompson is an acclaimed singer-songwriter with a career that has consistently garnered critical praise. NPR proclaims that he’s “the musical equivalent of an arrow to the heart,” while The New York Times calls his work “beautifully finessed.” Teddy released his first, self titled album in 2000.

    Thompson toured as part of Rosanne Cash’s band before signing with Verve and releasing his much lauded 2006 sophomore album Separate Ways, which demonstrated how much his songwriting, performing and record-making skills had evolved since his debut. It was followed in 2007 by Up Front & Down Low, a collection of personally charged readings of classic American country songs that demonstrated Thompson's increased assurance as a performer and interpreter. In 2008, Thompson released the upbeat and highly acclaimed, A Piece of What You Need, which was declared “one of this year’s best” by The Guardian and debuted at #9 in the UK’s pop charts.. A fifth studio effort, Bella, was released February 2011 to much acclaim and led to touring the world with Elton John among other things.

    In 2014 Thompson gathered his musical clan to release Family, one of the folk records of the year which garnered a multi page, in depth piece from The New York Times magazine. Read the article here.

    In 2016 Teddy released Little Windows, a record of original duets with singer Kelly Jones. The album was recorded live to tape and features an all star band of backing musicians. Teddy also produced Dori Freeman’s debut album which was hailed by The New York Times as one of the year’s best. Read the article here.

    2017 saw the release of the long awaited Shelby Lynn & Allsion Moorer duets record produced by Thompson, Not Dark Yet.

    Teddy is producing for other artists and continuing work on his own next record.
