Hope Village Hall – 08/05/10
What a great pleasure it was to see you live. We both thought your performance was everything we had hoped for. As we said we only came across you about eight months ago and we now have just about everything you have ever recorded. You are far and away the best songwriter this country has ever produced. As a songwriter you have to reveal so much about yourself; your opinions, beliefs, hopes and concerns, that we feel we know you well. Keep writing the songs. Those new ones you did are up there with your very best.
The Davy Lamp Folk Club – 22/05/10
I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed last night’s gig at the Davy Lamp folk club in Washington. I always enjoy your shows. You are a great storyteller and your anecdotes are entertaining and sometimes thought provoking. You mentioned last night that you choose every word in your songs really carefully… that absolutely shines through in them. Your songs are enjoyable to listen to, but the words tell stories that often really make you think. I hope you will continue to do gigs for many years yet.
