Thank you for sharing your music and voice, and also your magnificent website. I love listening to your songs, and even though I am hearing impaired from birth, it has never prevented me from listening to music, and yours is absolutely beautiful. Keep up the good work!

Just listened to your Christmas in the Ashram cd as I trimmed my Christmas tree...Bought it years ago when you came to UUCE in Erie, PA. Thought I would look you up to see what you are up to. Truly enjoy your music.

I will never stop loving you poetry and I have been listing to it for over ten years. You are the best! Also, Laurie will be in town next week, was going to bring her to see you, but you will be in Kerrville. I also, have a few questions to ask you. Thanks for your time.

When is your new album coming out with Chuck Rainey & Julie Bonk?
I absolutely was floored bt the Odetta moment.I now see how Tom was able to write Walk with Me with such detail & insight.

Tommy!! Just dug up my copy of "Lord of All" last week - my husband digitized it and now...I can hear the Left 52nd Street Choir and all the other songs - including my trio with myself! How young, starry-eyed, and innocent we all were...thirty years ago. Happy memories...bittersweet memories...

I remember where I was when I heard your CD for the first time--16 years ago. I copied my friends Cd then and enjoyed it so much. I lost it during many moves, and forgot your name. I found your CD again today--and love it just as much as I did then. Beautiful!! Love your music, it touched me. God Bless!

Remember me???? I always need a hug from your soul.

I saw you at a house concert in Palo Alto and want you to know that you have brought the magic back to music. Sounds cliche, but you touched my soul in ways I haven't been touched since I was a musician back in college. Thank you for gently pushing me back in that direction.

Enjoy your work so much. Met you a number of years ago at a FAR-West event and saw a couple of you tube videos where you filled in for Lawrence with BWG. Love all of you!!Maybe you'll come visit us in Vegas some time at GarageMaHall!

Tom, I discovered you a few months ago, and through you I have discovered a whole new world of music. I am a guitarist and sometimes play with your music as I'm listening to it. It inspires me to create new melodies and songs. It is refreshing to know that real music and real musicians still exist.

I saw you, Tom, at a house concert in Brenham, TX in 2000 or so and bought Christmas in the Ashram. It's one of my absolute favorite albums. Your sweet baritone voice and effortless mastery of the guitar have inspired me for a decade! Ever come to Minnesota? I'd love to help you set up some concerts with my connections in the Twin Cities so that I'd get a chance to see you live again! Thanks for sharing your gift and offering inspiration!

Saw you at Rice Festival in Fischer. Enjoyed your music so much (appreciated that you were helping another group out). The song that you sang about Martha-did you write it, what is it called, and how can I get it? Loved it.

We first saw you in about 1994 at the Virginia Wine Festival...got your then-current album and have been listening since. I'm always glad when one of your songs turns up on the iPod shuffle!

Went to see you and Carrie at Millbend Coffee House in the WOodlands. Bought 4 CD's and found the check in my checkbook this morning! I am so sorry I did not give it to anybody! If you will send me your address, I will mail it. My home email is molliholdford@aol.com Please use that email to add me to your email list as I am a teacher and they frown on us doing personal things at school. However, I do need you to send me the address to this email. Thanks!-

Hi Tom,
Jo-Ann and I totally enjoyed your performance Saturday evening in The Woodlands and I love all of the songs on your CD that we purchased. Are the guitar chords to "See Myself in You' available anywhere. I love the song. Thanks again for being so congenial and the great performance.


Vicky Williams

Hi Tom,
Since I saw you at Randy's in Waxahachie, I've listened to more and more of your music. Not just that, but your name keeps showing up in so many other places, that I'm a little embarrassed that I wasn't as aware then as I am now at your songwriting career. BTW, I love your music.


May 7, 2011

Tom, thanks for the recommend of "Crossing to Safety." I just finished it this morning. What a beautiful story of friendship!
Saw Cockburn in concert last month and he encored with "All the Diamonds." I just had to sing along. Would love to hear a version from you.
Looking forward to seeing/hearing you at the Wild Goose festival - we'll be travelling 13 hours down from Canada.

Enjoyed seeing you and Cary a few years ago in Salt Lake at a house concert. Just now ended up at your website (which is fantastic, by the way - I love listening to your music without interruption as I click through your web pages and write this comment) from a link on Cary's recent email distribution. I will keep my eyes open for you two coming to Denver someday.

Hi Tom, I live in Shreveport Louisiana and began having house concerts last year. I was fortunate to have had Johnsmith, Tom Kimmel, and Melissa Greener play here. When I asked both John and Tom who they may suggest I try to contact for our next event your name came up. I loved their suggestion because i love your music. If you are ever in the area or would be interested please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you. Terri Earnest

Years ago I was given a copy of one of your CD's I'm still loading it it to play.

Saw you at a coffee house concert years ago in the Philly area. Have loved your music ever since. Have all your CDs, but loaned out Christmas in the Ashram and never got it back. How can I buy another? Can't wait for your new release! Been waiting a long time...you have a true gift.

So sorry for the loss of your grandfather.

Tom, They call me "TANTO" on the RANCH and I have been a KerrVet for years. I was on the Recording Crew this year as the Quality Control Man, including your performance this year at KFF. I gotta tell you man, your live CD is the only one in my 6 slot player in my car that I have played and enjoyed over and over again.. It's a Benz, and on its 18 speaker BOSE system, your album sounds like heaven. I approved the sound of the CD, and I hope it sounds good to you. You are awesome, my favorite performer at Kerrville and I hope to see you again backstage next year.

Hi Tom,
Looking and reading your site today was a real joy.
I read that you played with Michael Hedges at some point in your touring. He remains one of my favorite artists and I saw him three times before he moved on from this life. Any stories to tell?

I'm good friends with Sue Demel, Deb Lader, and Bruce Roper and have seen you and Cary perform several times in Chicago. I recently moved back to the Dallas area (I'm actually in Rockwall) and would love to catch any upcoming performances you might have in this area.
I sure miss the live acoustic music scene in Chicago, so maybe you can recommend some places here I might check out? I've been to Sons of Hermann Hall, and Poor David's Pub.
Hope to meet up with you soon.

My wife and I really enjoyed the concert you and Cary performed in Charleston, WV on Nov 7. We enjoy the CD's and wondered where we could purchase more. One song really cracked me up, the lullabye one. I would love to get a copy of it.
Best wishes to you and your family.

There is an ethereal fealing that flows throughout my soul when I listen to your words. Then, there is that magic when you sing, made greater only when Cary sings with you as well as the lovely Hannah and Caroline. My life has truly been made richer by having your musical spirit in it. Thanks.

See you guys in November!

I cannot tear myself away from my computer, listening to your beautiful music. I accidentally superimposed Cary's song over yours and it took me until one of the song's was over to realize that you weren't singing in harmony - you blend that well!!!!!! I hope you will come to San Diego area sometime.

August 21, 2009

I love your new website. I am so sorry about your grandfather's untimely passing. I thought about him often when I needed the inspiration to go for a walk. I remember the love and pride in your voice when you spoke of him.
Keep fighting the good fight.
