Dublin Incredible music - when is Richard coming to Dublin? He's way overdue.
New York I just discovered RT's music this year. it's totally cool and regret it took so long. Thanks Richard for allowing me backstage at Winery show. It was a thrill to meet you.
Texas Referral form Robert Earl Keen. Thank you Robert... Thank you Richard.

New York I've been to 30+ RT performances over the years but just recently I had the immense pleasure of finally meeting and talking to him following his show with Loudon Wainwright at the Belly-Up Tavern in Solana Beach near San Diego. It was actually the third time within a month that I had been to one of his shows. In October I attended the "Loud and Rich" show in Westhampton on Long Island; then three weeks later I was at the City Winery in NYC for one of his all-request shows and then we traveled to the West Coast to see him in California. His shows with Wainwright were outstanding and presented the opportunity to become a LWIII fan at the same time. The all-request show in NYC could not have been more enjoyable. His performance, as is his wont, was near-perfect, no, make that perfect. I'm embarrassed to admit that when I did finally get to meet him in San Diego I was as tongue-tied as a 14 year old Beatles fan meeting John Lennon in 1964 (I'm 59). I told him I was his biggest fan in the world, to which he repied,""no you're not""(I just might be though)but my wife took a picture of the two of us together which is now one of my personal treasures, framed and on the wall. If I were able to push the rewind button back to that evening I would hope that I would have been a bit less intimidated. Sorry RT if I came off like a bit of a dolt but I had a bout of pseudo-adolescent regression in the presence of my all-time favorite musician. As I muttered to you that night, no pun intended, "you have immeasurably enriched my life" with your prodigious talent and peerless musicianship. Thank you, thank you!!

California I've been a fan since Fairport Convention albums we were listening to at University of California Santa Barbara days. Darn, due to recent layoff from a job at latest Silicon Valley company for 9 years, I've been pre-occupied with many issues and forgot to purchase tickets for my wife and friends for the Montalvo Concert in Saratoga, my home town. I think I'll show up anyway to find out if any seats become available if there are any no shows. Please do not stop your musical energy. Are younger people listening to your music and other creations? They should.
California Thank you for your amazing musicianship. I'm in love.

Maryland Welp, I've been an RT fan since Pentangle and seen the fellow a couple of times, most notably at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, LI some few years ago. Here's looking at you, Dick.

Wiltshire Such talent - awesome! Thanks for giving me so much happiness.
Ontario Love It
leipzig Just watched grizzly man - the soundtrack is sublime...
New Jersey I saw you with Fairport in Philadelphia and have been a fan ever since. It was probably in the late 70's with Sandy Denny and I've never forgotten the show just the date. Thanks for all the great music.
"December 7, 2009"
California We're doing our bit to bring in the younger fans as well so that we don't all die off too quickly!
Wales Anxiously waiting for the song book so I can play the 'real' chords!

Dublin Keep up the good work. Any news on Ireland/UK shows for 2010.

Tennessee I happened upon the Mary Black version of a Richard Thompson song intitled "The Dimming of the Day" and was wondering why the recording has "changed my life" as a man as well as a songwriter. Does Richard co-write? Or give lessons and would it be OK if I pitch this song?
"December 15, 2009"
Illinois Great stuff. I started listening to Fairport Convention in the late 60's or early 70's along with Pentangle, Steeleye Span etc.
Pennsylvania Love your g-playing, story telling, and sense o` humor...

Worcestershire I continue to be inspired by the quality of his output

Waikato Thompson is the greatest guitarist of the rock era. Apart from Jimmy Page. However, Jimmy can't sing or write wonderful lyrics and has no decernable sense of humour.
Idaho thank you for sharing
"December 27, 2009"
Tennessee I only wish I could bend them strings like RT. Love ya baby!!!
California Just saw Richard last summer and fell in love with his guitar work! We hope he comes through again this year-we're going to get more tickets, and bring more people-everyone should have the opportunity to hear him live.
