Magical musical melancholia

Teddy Thompson writes and sings songs that give you a sort of lonesome ache. But an uplifting one... Not the blues but the moods.

Teddy Thompson comes from good musical stock. His parents are British folk/rock legends Richard and Linda Thompson. His new (and second) album Separate Ways was described by All Music Guide as a gorgeous, tight, and utterly magical outing.

Teddys concerts are daring and sometimes dark escapades into those whimsical backroads of the mind where the shadowy creatures of the soul are lit by Thompsons musical and lyrical spotlight.

And like his dad, Teddy can really play the six-stringer.

Teddy Thompson will perform (unreserved, seated show) at the A&I Hall in Bangalow on Saturday, November 25.

Tickets are $40 and available from Barebones in Bangalow (6687 1393), Mullumbimby Book Shop (6684 1413), Buzz Bar Music (6672 4766) and All Music and Vision stores in Byron (6685 7611), Lismore (6622 5399) and Ballina (6686 8111). Or at the door if theres any left.

Freebie: The Echo has two double passes and five copies of Separate Ways to give away to some lucky readers. To go in the draw to win phone 6622 2888 between 10.15 & 10.30am next Monday, November 20, and tell us if in 1967 Richard Thompson (Teddys dad) was a member of that famous band a) The Beatles, b) Nirvana, or c) Fairport Convention.

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
