Stray Muse and Richard Thompson

Songwriter, guitarist and singer Richard Thompson has been a major inspiration to all of us at Stray Muse. As founder of Fairport Convention, he and singer/songwriter Sandy Denny invented a genre – rock based on traditional English and Scottish music. Since those days, he has written and recorded countless great songs, some of which we perform.

Thompson recently published a memoir called Beeswing (highly recommended), and he was just interviewed on Fresh Air by Terry Gross. The interview is definitely worth a listen.

If you’d like to hear our rendition of Richard Thompson’s songs Night Comes In, Dimming of the Day, and Walking on a Wire, click the links. Enjoy!
