Going from busking at Pike Street Market to kicking it at Kerrville, Napa and Walnut Valley, this unreconstructed folkie sounds like the folk music we'd have been listening to all along if Alice's Restaurant hadn't become a hit. TR Ritchie writes, plays and sings with heart and conviction - and an innocence - you wouldn't expect from someone that's been around a few rough and competitive blocks. A dreamer with at least seven toes on the ground, Ritchie is a very solid link on a very solid folkie chain that somehow manages to command your attention without demanding it. Killer stuff.
- CHRIS SPECTOR, Editor & Publisher, MIDWEST RECORD
"TR Ritchie must be the reincarnation of Jimmie Rodgers, Woody Guthrie, Samuel Clemens and Will Rogers. How else to explain his great songs? His melodies are classics that will stay with you for years. TR is one of the very best!"
- MICHAEL TERRY, Booking Coordinator, UNCLE CALVIN'S COFFEEHOUSE; Dallas TX
