Friday Factory Tune: Now Be Thankful

By November 26, 2010Friday Factory Tune

To mark the holiday, we offer this live performance by Fairport Convention, 1970, from the Maidstone festival, “Now Be Thankful.”

Sounds like a traditional, but it’s by Richard Thompson and David Swarbrick. Thompson was about 20 when he co-wrote the song, and he still tours as one of the world’s best songwriter/guitarists/peformers. Fairport Convention, meanwhile, celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2007. And who knows where the time goes?
