Tours When're you going to play in France? I don't get back to the UK that often!!
new hampshire "My favorite musician, bar none! When I introduced my wife to Richard's music, she thought there were two guitarists playing. When I took her to a show she was in complete disbelief!"
Illinois "Been a fan sine the Fairpoirt Convention days but really came to appreciate you with ""Shoot Out the Lights"". Have everything you have released since then. Have seen you solo at the MAC in DuPage Illinois last year - was a teriffic show in a great venue. Going to see you there again tonight. Please keep coming back to this area."

Massachusetts "Curious...on Richard's ""Hand of Kindness"" album, Richard and his band are seen busking in the streets. Did he ever busk in his earlier years?"
Rhode Island thanks for all the great music
Missouri "I really loved the show on Saturday at College of Dupage. My husband, 8 yr. old daughter and I attended. We all thought it was great. My daughter was riveted by Debra. My daughter plays guitar, but I think she's going to start asking for ankle percussion now. What was the name of the band and song from ""down under"" that you played last? We really liked it. It was hard not to dance."
Missouri "Just saw the ""1,000 Years of Popular Music"" tour in Lawrence, KS last Monday, 11 October.Terrific show!"
Rochester Saw Richard at Cropredy with Danny Thompson some years back and was 'simply blown away' by the sound they produced. Seen Richard a few times since-what a sound-what lyrics !!

Sweden "I really love your CD ""Thousand years of popular music"""
Pennsylvania "You DA Man!!!! :-0Cheers"
Sydney "Had another listen to Two Letter Words last night ? disc one ? what an amazing work! Qwite apart from the scathing guitar, this album should be a reference disc for double bass playing. Danny Thompson, you are a legend. RT, can you please make this album available again - I want to buy some gifts. Thanks!"

Pennsylvania Just saw that show at the Keswick Theatre last night and thought it was sensational. I hope you come back to the Philadelphia region soon. I would like to have heard more of your music but I still think it was really great moving through all those genre and centuries of music. A real variety special as it were. Thanks again. We waited a long time to hear you again. We last saw you at Colorado College in 1988-89. And like fine wine....
manchester My trousers are full of pelicans!

British Columbia "Just hunted down and obtained the ""Strict Tempo"" cd. It's beyond cool. Way beyond cool. "

Pennsylvania "Hi, I just saw the 1000 years concert at the keswick wednesday night. It was wonderful fantastic beyond what I can say here so I won't try. Debra and Judith were a nice unexpected...bonus...I really liked the drums especially. It was the first concert I have been to in my life so it was really special. I had tried to see RT twice before, 1st time I didn't have money for a ticket, 2nd time was at the Philly folk festivel and I was 8.5 monthes pregnant and afraid of going into labor all the way out at that farm. (I actually wasn't that concerned...but nobody would agree to take me for that reason) I took my mother to the concert for her birthday, she introduced me to RT when I was about, er, 10 or so. She was really excited too and kept thanking me over and over for taking her and told to me to write to your man selling CDs in the lobby who was so nice to us. Anyway, thank you for providing us such a wonderful experiance wednesday nite and for creating...I am madly in love with, your music. ;) Goodbye"
wisconsin COOL!!!!!!!!!!!!
New York "Just got back from Tarrytown show,1000 years of music, great show, one problem, music stand blocked guitar. Real problem. Many of us spoke about it after the show was over. It was like watching a baseball game and not being able to see the pitch reach the plate."

Norway love your work. thank you for the brilliant observations and the comfort you have given me in my solitude.
Massachusetts Just that I think RT is a powerfully moving musician! Fantastic!
Essex Genius-another couple of gigs like Cambridge in May and I might yet convince my missus too!
Isle of Wight "GREAT show Oct 20 at the Keswick Theater in Glenside (PA, USA). Loved the repartee with the audience, especially the Scots accent."
Massachusetts "Has any thought been given to rescheduling this Thursday night's Boston show to a later date after the conclusion of the World Series? I love Richard Thompson's music dearly, but there's no way I'm missing the opportunity to see the Red Sox win it all for the first time since 1918. I suspect that many previously purchased seats may be empty, particularly if the Red Sox need only one more victory to win the Series on Thursday night. I, for one, would be delighted if the show were rescheduled for a later date."

Washington DC "My first visit. A beautiful site. I've only seen RT live once at the Birchmere in Alexandria VA, but it was an incredible show. I'll be back. In the meantime I'll keep listening to the CDs, tapes, and LPs I've accumulated. Thanks RT for all the great songs!"

NSW "I knew a little of FC in the late 60s and early 70s. Sometime last year I had dozed off with the radio on and woke to ""I'll tag along"" (yes, it was on the air at least once in Aust) and was hooked. Since then I have been catching up on everything in between. A remarkable career!"

Massachusetts Am interested in US tour information. Thank you.
Montana "One of my favorite concert moments was at the Gallatin Gateway Inn near Bozeman, Montana. Great dinner where Richard was dining as well (I made the stupid mistake of offering to buy him a drink). Great show and it was my birthday -- what can I say? Come to Helena, Bozeman or Missoula and I'll be there. So many songs so well written and performed --thank you! They blow me away."

New Jersey Great show as usual in Montclair(Outpost In The Burbs)
Michigan "I saw you play in Grand Rapids, Michigan a couple of years back. I'm taking care of a guitarist who used to play in this area, but who is now a-bed with Multiple Sclerosis. He tuned me in to your music and true-to-life lyrics. The two of us wish you well, Richard."
Virginia "Thanks for all the great tunes. Play with the electric band as much as possible, and play Calvary Cross, a 'signature tune.'"

Massachusetts "Hi.. I saw Berklee and Lebanon, and very pleased each time. I keep imagining the Trio doing Eric Carmen's ""Go all the way"" now. This was a rich experience. I would dearly appreciate access to audio versions ""Shenandoah"" and ""A-11"" someday. My best regards"
Dublin Keep it coming
Oregon "Fate smiled upon me the night I was dragged to see my first RT show. A buddy was raving about this guy I'd never heard of. I learned quickly that this is amongst the most prevelant MO's used to convert luddites into frothing, raving followers. The gig was at an awful dive of a place, The Club Soda, in Kalamazoo. It was the, Across A Crowded Room, tour. I couldn't have been more than ten feet from Richard. I hope he didn't notice I had wet myself. Just kidding. It was a life changing event for me. I think I've been to about fifteen RT shows since. Naturally, I, 'drag', as many of the unwashed as possible to each show..."
Dominica Thanks!!
