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?
