The hill?  - Oh yeah, the Pennines.   I wonder if daughter could put us up on the settee at her student house in York - we could do the washing up as payment except it would probably take a couple of days Grin

From the Beverley Folk Festival site, "Ralph, who has enjoyed a 50 year career, will celebrate 50 years on the road with 2 national tours, Spring and Autumn."
So much for cutting back on the touring, looks like we are in for a bumper year. At last, something to look forward to.

I wonder when the 2015 tour dates will be announced. I intend going to at least two concerts. Am learning to play Still In Dreams as I have taken up playing guitar again.  Smiley

Just checked out some of the dates on Official page for the spring. All a bit far to travel. Hope there will be some in Midlands and Wales.

Just wanted to say that I'm feeling disappointed like Tryer  Sad

This doesn't just apply to Ralph, but I'm getting very frustrated at the moment that so many of my favourite artists seem to be concentrating their gigs in the South (except for Maddy Prior who does more in the far north of England!)  and are seemingly  unconcerned about their tours missing out on some large population areas - in my case, I'm particularly thinking of Manchester and Liverpool and surrounding areas.

In Ralph's case, I was very disappointed that his Celtic Cousins tour didn't come to North Wales, and am now even more disappointed that we won't be able to see him on this tour either.

On the positive side, it's good to see that he's touring again, and that more gigs are promised in the Autumn - I'm sure there will be many of us who are feeling left out this time who will be in reach of a gig then.  Grin

If seeing Ralph live wasn't such an extraordinary experience I guess it wouldn't matter so much - and I feel privileged that I have had the chance to see him so many times - very definitely another positive!

Didn't Ralph say he was giving up on long tours & just doing a few dates as it suited him?

Unfortunately, unless you're willing to travel, I think the instances of him coming anywhere as close as he regularly did are going to get fewer & fewer....understandable at his age, really.

 I am rarely disappointed, Naomi, To misquote JFK ask not what your chosen artist can do for you? Were Ralph to be given full credit, he would like less talented "stars" Do a few stadium shows over priced, and hard to get too? I feel privileged that I can be "up close and personal" to someone I believe to be one of the premier Singer Songwriters. of any genre.  Smiley Not a compliment or a rant  Smiley just how I see it? to me its fact. Of course by his very nature, I doubt he would see it that way? Why he isn't on "mainstream" media is a mystery to me....but then I feel real talent is now a drawback? imagine real talent? it would ruin many a mediocre career, maybe thats why ...OK that was a rant  Roll Eyes Just as well Ralph lacks exposure? with more, bigger fewer venues? and far fewer chances to catch him...Live..and in my view at his best....OK not easy? Make an effort? I believe its worth it.... after all Ralph does.  
 I thank you for reading this and apologise in advance for any offence..certainly non meant....As with anyone we feel a friend, never get enough visits? so go see them?
                                      Enough..... catch you down the road?

No offence taken Tryer  Smiley

You're absolutely right - to have been 'up close and personal' so many times to Ralph, and to have experienced his many talents live so often is an absolute privilege. We have often travelled 70+ miles to see him - more than worth it. Unfortunately with children still at home it's not always possible to go further - wish we could  Tongue

Hope to see you 'somewhere down the road' too  Smiley
