Northamptonshire Congratulations to Richard on his much deserved, long overdue OBE.
Louisiana Not enough publicity
Dumfries, Scotland simply the best of the best
Vermont I enjoy all of Richard's work. I am wondering if he has ever considered doing an entire album of traditional songs. Something akin to 1000 Years of Popular Music, but geared more toward old folk or blues tunes? Just a thought - love everything he does
California Actually, listening since 1971 ... Major Congrats on the OBE Award from the Queen.
"January 3, 2011"

Galway I have known Richard's music fir a long time but it seems to speak to me more of late... Am thinking of trying to make a folkish ( ! ) cd and would love to record Dimming of the day but need to make it mine first.. it is one of my favourite songs of all t
Yorkshire I haven't found RT's website user-friendly-in that I just wanted to check the tour dates and cannot spot "Tour Dates"-of course I may have failed the intelligence test!!!!!!!!

Yorkshire You should know, Rhino UK have taken payment for a copy of Shoot Out the Lights; they tell me its out of stock when my account says its in stock; offered a refund but didn't pay; have now stopped responding to my emails.

Carmarthenshire, Wales I am bringing my 12 yr old daughter to Richard's concert in Cardiff - her first ever proper gig (as opposed to festivals) to celebrate her Dad's birthday. Her Dad, Buz was the son of the wonderful Dolly Collins and a talented musician himself - Richard was one of his musical heroes. Sadly, Buz took his own life 8 years ago, and I hope this gig may ignite a connection to her musical heritage and give us some quality music blasting out her room for a change. Thank you for your art and the healing it inspires.
Henley on Thames Thanks for a storming show at Aylesbury. 17-1-11. Come back soon Thanks
Cleveland I really started listening to Richard at the concert he did at the Sage year or so ago. I have been aware of Richard for many years and always admired him but a live performance is the best introduction to him. He is a National Treasure.

England Don't EVER stop performing live.
Yorkshire Saw you in York on latest tour, superb. Last 3 times I've seen you have been fantastic experiences. Tour with Danny Thompson and the 1000 yrs at the Meltdown in London last year. I know the response in York and Salford was fantastic, my old friend Maart and my sister saw you there and were blown away. So good luck with the rest of the tour and thanks for the memories. I have to say my son, now in his 20's is a big fan ever since he nicked the characters and part of the plot from Cooksferry Queen as part of his English asignment (GCSE), he got an A for it, but failed to credit RT as a key source! You see you can never know the impact you have!
"January 20, 2011"
Middlesex Thanks for so much joy. Look forward to seeing your concert at Royal Festival Hall on 2/2/11
Virginia I'm always interested in knowing when R.T. will be in the area for a show.I saw him in N.Y.C. at Irving Plaza and became an instant fan. Long life and health, Richard!
London Music for life for dreams in heaven

Hampshire just seen dream attic tour at salisbury. brilliant! mrs now a confirmed fan too. a set for cropredy?
New York When I was in Reno, Nevada my friend from Australia said that all he knew about Reno was a reference in a Richard Thompson song. I'd heard about RT for years and am now catching up. Going to Istanbul for 4 months so adios for now.
Bristol Rest assured that the dedication was very much appreciated - and "Racehorse" is a favourite of mine, and I intend to stay "in the running" for a while yet. Thanks again!
