I am wondering and hoping you have plans to come and play in Scotland ..
All the best,
Grant (your driver on The Planxty UK tour 1975 - now living in California)
I'm a 26 year old man from Derry.
Just wanted to say you inspired me to play and sing since I was about 12, although humbled to realise there's no chance I'll be tenth as good as you all these years on!
Keep er lit!
Ps. Any chance of an acoustic version on hard station?? Can't find one online heard you sing it on radio once, and it blew me away.
You'll probably never get to Boise, so we're coming to Ireland in June 2019 and if you are playing anywhere, we will come see you. Thanks for the great music over the years.
It's been a long while since I last/first saw you in the Shaw Theatre in Euston Road ... I think possibly last Friday was even better, as this recent blast is very firmly etched on my memory!
Indelibly yours :~)
Hi Paul...a newcomer to your music...and your guitar style to...I.m interested in your tuning for...”I want you to want me”...have tried it in other tunings..but doesn’t sound right! Saw you at the Cropredy festival a few years ago....you were special!!
Hello Paul, you’ve made so many fantastic albums in your career and we’ve seen you play many times, but l just gotta say thank-you for doing Hard Station - especially live at the Half Moon. That album means so so much to us. Meant so much then means so much now. It was a privilege to see you with that classic line-up of wonderful musicians. Jim
Paul, I am a Youth that's inclined to Ramble, a song I've loved for decades, came into my head again recently and on looking on Inernet it says it was written by Cara Dillon. But she was born in 1975 and I bought Welcome Here Kind Stranger in 1978. Do you now who wrote it?
I've been a fan since God knows when - can across The World is what you make it - Going to re-visit my collection - thanks for the music
Hi ,I have just purchased tickets for your Newry concert ,have wanted to see you for years ,looking forward to my first Brady gig.
At Limerick gig last. We know Paul is top notch. First time seeing Theo and his band. They are very good musicians. Unfortunately the Paul/Theo mix doesn't quite work. The lads on stage seemed to be having a ball, but that's not what most of us came to hear. Paul on his own or Theo & band on their, fair enough but not together please.
Hi Paul, Want to say thank you, Theo and the band for a really fantastic evening on Sunday at Vicars Street. Rate it as one the best concerts we have been to and well worth the trip from Dorset. Good luck to Bairbre Anne too. Good luck with the other dates
Hi Paul, I ADORE YOUR MUSIC. I check now and then to see if you will be playing in the US. Any plans at present to come across the pond? Take care, Suzan
Thank you so much for your music! It is so difficult to put into words just what it means to me. But your songs have gotten me through difficult times as well as joyful ones. Just absolutely beautiful, soulful and classic. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Hoping to get to Ireland to hear you play sometime soon.
Hi Paul. Glad to see you (and Andy) are still going strong. I read you might be working on a book/memoirs. That is a great idea. Would love to read it.
Paul, sadly I have came late to your music after reading the opinion piece by Susan McKay in the Guardian about Lyra McKee which referred to The Island. Thank you - wonderful lyrics and music. Best wishes from the Himalayas
Hi ! - I like The Johnstons and Planxty very much ( tried to play Spanish Lady ) - I have two questions : 1) - Did you ever play on The Transatlantic Sessions with Jeremy Douglas ? - 2) Will you come to Cambridge folk festival ? / yours sincerely / Kenne Svedberg
Love ALL your songs, Paul!!! Thanks for sharing your gifts and talents to the world for 40+ years~Anita
Looking forward to seeing you in the Spiegeltent in Wexford on 25th October. Hope "The Island" and your many classics raise the roof!
Someone's got to give you and Andy, and Kevin and Dona, for a huge thank you for that fab gig in Cork, last Friday.
Hello, Paul. I just found out you were in Chicago last month and I missed it ! Aaaaarrrgghh! Do you usually tour the U.S. in the fall? I'll try to keep up with the tour dates in the future. All the best -
