GUEST,John Robinson Ralph McTell own website (11) RE: Ralph McTell own website 25 Sep 04

Julie was fortunate enough to be invited to support Ralph earlier this year at the Customs House International Guitar Festival in South Shields.

On a personal level, the man is just a really nice guy, and lives up to the positive comments everyone makes about him. He's even provided us with a cracking quote about Julie - which will decorate her tour posters for some time to come! He didn't need to do that and there are many in his position who would not have done so.

In terms of music - his "Jesus Wept" moved me - very apt in these times. His version of "Hesitation Blues" is another stand out piece.

It seemed to me that Ralph dropped off the media radar for a while, but with the amount of broadcasting he is doing with Smooth Operations right now (they have a live concert scheduled for the Mike Harding show pretty soon) it looks like he's getting the attention he deserves.

All the best
John Robinson
