So when we come to here you in Seattle, it will be like getting a fix or something!!! My wonderful life partner is so amused with you and your music too. She is a sweet lady and loves me to death! She went and got the tickets for me over the internet the other night. Yahoo!!!! I have been turning alot of people on to your music out here in the PNW Pacific Northwest. And please do remember....Alexander Graham Bell invented everything! Keep up the good work!

California "Brilliant guitarist, articulate song writer, world class wit. Thanks for sharing"
Wiltshire "My better half and myself made the return trip to the Anvil, Basingstoke last night and were, as we expected, astounded again by what we saw. What can you get for £17 in Basingstoke? Half a tank of petrol, a take-away for two, a bus ticket to somewhere nice or two hours of bliss. How does he do it? Even the ladies who show you to your seats seemed to take notice. ""Smiffy's Glass Eye"" alone was worth ten times the price of admission. ""Ducknapped"" on the car stereo made the long journey home a pleasure, rather than an ordeal, and rouded off a beautiful evening. A thousand thanks to Richard and we can't wait for Exeter, Salisbury and Trowbridge."
Northland "I have just enjoyed listening to the interview Richard gave on the Tom Morton show on Radio Scotland. I was able to do this via 'listen again' on their website. Most excellent use of technology. Love to see RT back out in NZ sometime soon. Till then I'll just have to keep flying around the world each summer. Cheers"

Maine "Any chance of fitting in a tour date in Massachusetts or Maine between the Vienna VA and New Haven CT one? I would love to see a live performance (and may yet make the four hour drive to CT if there isn't a closer one!) I'm an expat Brit, living in Maine with an American husband."

Plymouth Have been listening to Richard sinceI first caught Fairport Convention in 1968.
Devon Thanks for a brilliant concert in Exeter last night. Truly superb.
Cornwall "I went to my first RT gig last night at the Riverside Exeter and it was awesome. RT played most of the classics, including my favourites, 1952 Vinncent,Cooksferry Queen, and a very powerful Crawl Back. There was also a tribute to the Fairport days with Crazy Man Michael. Mr T's guitar playing is phenomenal and it was a privilige to witness it in person.Thanks for a fantastic night out. I'm now looking forward to watching the BBC 4 programme on Friday 4th June."
Devon I have seen Richard live many times.I saw him last night in Exeter. He has always been a genius but he just keeps on getting better and his voice is as impressive now as his often transcendental guitar playing.I love his sense of humour.
Devon Just seen RT in concert last night. It was brilliant to see a master at work!
Durham "I saw the York Gig in the UK. RT was well up to form, nice to see some of the older material getting an airing and set me thinking how RT has not yet got the recognition he deserves as a songwriter. Was it ever the same! How can he play a bass line and the melody at the same time on such fast tunes, I've never worked that one out since Fairports early days."
