Finland Thank you for the great concert in Helsinki this evening. I enjoyed your music very much. I would have enjoyed even more with a bit less volume: for me the clarity of music is the main thing. My impression is, that we lost a lot of details this evening, and that is a pity as in your music there´s a lot! Best regards
Ohio Richard, How can I get a copy of "I Want a Girl with the Smarts off the Charts"? You performed it in Ann Arbor at the Ark in July.
Helsinki Thank you for great consert in Helsinki 18.8.

Kentucky Friday on My Mind--the music vid is great!
Vancouver, BC Richard, I heard your Ottawa Bluesfest concert on CBC's Canada Live. I can't believe I've lived my whole life without hearing your music before now!!! You moved me with Crawl Back, Richard, but The Hots for the Smarts stole my heart! What joy to listen to a musician who composes so beautifully and writes such intelligent, thought-provoking lyrics. Would love to hear all that talent in person. Tell me you're coming to Vancouver at some point in time. I'll wait.

Indiana The depth of intelligence and beauty in RT's writing combinned with his performing talent becomes almost addictive in its evil sweetness.
Ontario I just listened to RT's rendition of Season of the Witch for the first time and I'm speachless. The guitar work is like no other, it's angry,beautiful, intense, and incredible. Where could I find more of that?I've been listening to RT & Fairport on and off for years but I'm starting to pay a little more attantion. RT is quite underated as a guitarist, I had know idea he was that intense.

London Early 70's listened to my sister's Fairport albums but have only really started to explore Richard in the last couple of years. Knocked out by the Green Man gig. Next gig you do in UK me, and a bunch of fellow recent converts, will be there. Cheers.

Scotland Hi Richard, come back to Scotland soon. Any format will do: solo, duet, band. We're aleays grateful.
New Mexico Hello, Richard! Good fortune to see and hear you at Thirsty Ear. I have enjoyed Fairport Convention in the late 60's and, then, discovered your solo work in the early 70's. About that time I also discovered Ralph Vaughn Williams' music. He remains one of my favorite classical composers. With you being another musical favorite, I would be very interested in your views regarding his works. I am a little hoarse this morning from singing at the top of my lungs and cheering along with the rest of the lucky throng. Before you played I saw you and your lady enjoying and photographing the scene and what a scene it was! Thanks and all the best
