Kettering, Northants I have been watching bands all of my life, from Yes to the Young Knives (a chronological gap rather than alphabetical). I thought the write up for the 1000 Years show sounded interesting so I got a ticket. I did not expect much, but of the thousands of bands I have seen, the show at Northampton was one of the best ever. A fantastic evening, quite special.
Hampshire I saw 1000 years twice; Basingstoke and Wimbledon, and I thought it was absolutely wonderful
Salisbury Saw Richard last night 5 Feb 2009 at Salisbury-excellent entertainment!
Bournemouth saw RT last night in salisbury. Lovely concert. Great fun!
North Yorkshire Always magical. Gateshead '1000 years' - beyond superlative. I just didn't want the concert to end - and this from a woman struggling to overcome panic attacks in crowded places!

Pontypridd, Wales Great concert in Cardiff. Great combination with other artists
Swindon Superb last night of tour in Oxford - thanks
Northampton Richard's music means a lot to me. He was my Mum's favourite musician. She died 4 years ago but I always find hope in Richard's music. It allows me to take time out and think of her. We played her favourite song 1952 Black Vincent Lightning at her funeral.......she was born in 1952, and the song rmeinded her of her Grandfather who had that bike! I recently went to the 1000 years of music concert and I felt like I took my Mum with me. She would have loved the music from the middle ages especially.
Hokkaido From 'Liege & Leaf'album, when I was 15.
Oxfordshire It beggers belief how one man with just ten digits can get SO much music out of one little wooden box! I've not heard such great creativity or virtuosity with a guitar and with lyrics and music since Bob Dylan in his early years, but with humour to boot! All power to your elbow - I mean fingers. Hey, how about preventing all that creativity from going to waste (once you're 'gone' ;o( so start up a creative music How do oy do it? Come up with ideas and put them into words and notes? PS - Happy 60th for 3/4/09 ;oD
New York Richard Thompson is my favorite musician of all time. His music is beautiful and his lyrics are inspiring to me as a writer. I love seeing him live--he always gives fantastic performances. I have seen him in Washington, D.C. a number of times.

Pennsylvania Just started listening to Folk Village. Not typicaly touched by music but Beeswing took me places. I'm a recovered alcoholic, maybe there is a bit of that lost child in me. Now I can't get enough of his music.
