Teddy Thompson at the 9:30 Club

Teddy Thompson

One of our personal favorites, with a tenor as sweet and transfixing as they come, Teddy Thompson is the folk-rock son of Richard and Linda Thompson, so he’s got pedigree and pressure. But he consistently proves his mettle, living up to the hype, which includes the New York Times calling him “one of the most gifted songwriters of his generation.” Thompson’s new album, Bella, his fifth, is a gem, filled with catchy hooks over rootsy music and a sweet tenor that recalls Roy Orbison. Buddy Holly was also an inspiration. Thompson opens for Old 97’s. Sunday, April 10. Doors at 7 p.m. Nightclub 9:30, 815 V St. NW. Tickets are $25. Call 202-265-0930 or visit 930.com.
