New Jersey "I've loved Richard's music since the early 1970's when I was in high school (Fairport, w/Linda, etc., etc.). It's so wonderful that his songs/artistry are as fresh,innovative and brillant today as ever! He's written more classic quality tunes than any other artist I've know; no small feat these days, particularly w/the state of the music industry. I wish he was even more appreciated for all of these attributes by the general public. I'm bringing my 10 and 12 year-olds to his concert at the Keswick Theater this month - my son is an aspiring guitarist, and I think he can learn a lot from Richard's musicianship."
Kansas "Am traveling from Lawrence, KS to St. Paul to the concert at the Fitzgerald. My sister and I would really, really, really, love to hear Destiny. I am spreading the word through a class I teach on Rock 'n Roll...think the Outside of the Inside is the exact message this college generation needs to hear!"

California RT is the best.
Washington "Last night's show at the Nordstrom Recital Hall was nothing less than amazing. From our second row seats, my sweetie and I marveled at the energy, the spirit, and the richness of the music as well as the camaraderie of Richard Thompson and Danny Thompson. After so many years and so many shows, Richard's voice is otherwordly wonderful and we remain convinced that he has to have three hands to play a guitar like that. I was on the edge of tears a couple of times, and laughing out of my seat at others. At all times, I was nearly breathless with awe and delight. Well done, fellas! Come back soon"
Maryland Can catch RT show anywhere within a few hours.
Washington "Caught your Seattle show last night. FANTASTIC. We continue to be blessed by your music, its beauty and humour. Best wishes for a fantastic tour. We'll come see you every time you come to Seattle. "
Washington "Richard and Danny's show in Seattle 10-08-05 was tremendous. Both were in fine form. It was the 4th time I've seen Richard. It was as good as one solo show I saw him give in Atlanta about 8 years ago (and that one was jaw-droppingly spectacular). What a mad brilliant hilarious cat! A performer's performer, a consummate professional. Hey Richard, if you read this - THANKS! I left the show last night not only feeling like I got my money's worth, but like I still owed you more. Love the new recording, too."

Colorado "When can we pre-order the Box Set? Saw RT for the bazillionth time last night. He once more brought me to tears with Persuasion. Richard thank you for the spontaneous, or so it seemed redition of Shoot out the Lights."
Washington "We saw Richard at Benaroya Hall in Seattle last Saturday. Our 18 year old son is now a fan. Richard is an amazing musician and presents his music with light and humor. He is an old soul. Richard, come back to Seattle soon!"
Crowborough East Sussex looking forward to next UK tour.

Washington "My girlfriend saw Richard in 1989 and saw he was coming to Portland last week. We went to see him, and I've now got another collection of albums to buy <sigh>. I loved the music and the performance."
Minnesota "I saw you at the Fitzgerald last night and realized how old you must be when you sang ""I was 19 in the summer of love"" as was I. Nineteen love weaves through all the loves that follow. Oh to yearn that way again.Thanks fo all you do. And for keeping the flash in your eyes."
Minnesota "I just went to his show at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN, and it was amazing. Always a great show!"
Minnesota "Loved the concert last night at Fitzgerald in St. Paul, MN. UNfortunately the top balcony acoustics were not good. could not understand all the words, wasn't the dialect. Music mix sounded too heavy on bass. Lost some key words. Do you have lyrics printed/available?What an artist! how fun! my favorite was even sung in the encore! Break somebody's heart tonight. So witty. Come back to see us again! next time I will order tickets right away!"
New York "I have tried for years to inject some of Richards style and energy into my playing. What ever I play comes out sounding like American Mountain Music, but it's close enough for me."
New York love the solo acoustic shows. among the best live music I have ever heard! I heartily recommend releasing an extensive selection of solo live material on CD and DVD!!!
Camagüey Thanks you Richard for your music. I would like to have heard you aleady 30 years before. But I think that I have time left to do it.
