Congratulations on winning 2nd in the Gospel Songwriter Competition at MerleFest. I have send your web to some of my Christian friends.

I saw you this past Friday at the Aladdin and what a surprise. You have now moved to the top ten of my favorite female artists. Not sure how I missed you all this time?? Bought two albums while there and thanks for sighing them both. Listened to both on the way home and now want more. And you an Oregonian too. Keep it up, keep them coming and come visit us in Astoria. You would be very welcome and I would be happy to make intros to venues. Thanks for the pinch. Your new fan, Bill at the Beach. ps. what don't you like about your Epiphone?

Just wanted to thank you for your fantastic gifts of your live music at "in the woods" and the Silodam livingroom concert last week in amsterdam. Hope you are recovering well.
You told me about Alasdair Roberts and i've been listening to him on Spotify. You're right that he is absolutely wonderful! Thanks for the tip.
Next time you're in amsterdam let me know and i could show you round this wonderful city. Go well x mireille

I also saw you at Finedon on Friday- it was like a dream.. It was great talking to you and your performance was fantastic! Hoping to bring my husband along when you play in Leicester in June. Good luck with the rest of the tour! Vicky
May 10, 2009
Great show at the stables in milton keynes last night - I took my nine year old daughter and she loved it. Well worth the 3 hour round trip (but my wife wasn't impressed by my daughter waking her up after midnight to tell her that she'd enjoyed the concert!). It was a great venue. Purchased the live album and it's great. Keep up the good work!
May 9, 2009
Just wanted to say Thank you for last night in Finedon...so good to see you...so weird seeing you there in a little village bar, it reminded me of the time I went and saw Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott afew years back at Kingscliffe Village Hall...just so strange to see just brilliant musicians in such surroundings, but I beleive it is a much better way to hear you. The Stables is good, but this was much more intimate...I even stood behind you at the bar...good grief, I was saying to myself..thats Rachel Harrington standing in front of me...so surreal...ha ha..maybe I should get out more.
Brilliant stuff, I only wish you could have played all night.
Bought your live album, and after you signed it you thanked me and I nearly collapsed in a heap at your feet..Rachel Harrington just spoke to me...good grief, I really should get out more...ha ha ha.
Thanks again for all the enjoyment your music has given me.
Your performance last night reminded me of Michelle Shocked, Gillian Welch and even the Waifs at different points.
Love what you are doing..good luck for the future.
April 24, 2009

April 23, 2009

April 16, 2009
Just heard you live on Bob Harris country, on my way to do the shopping! Went the long way round so I could hear it all, it was lovely. Thank you very much. With so much commercial rubbish about it is great to hear such beautiful music, and what a voice. Ric Campbell, Huntingdon, UK.
April 16, 2009
I heard you on Bob Harris Country on Radio tonight. I really loved your voice so I will be buying your album. I'm a real fan of country including Alison Krauss, Emilylou Harris, Nanci Griffith etc
February 16, 2009
Just found you on Myspace. And I'm absolutely knocked out.

Heard you this morning on KZUM,
River City Folk music program.
You sounded great.
December 18, 2008
WNCW, a public radio station in Spindale, North Carolina, turned me on to your distinct sound. When are you going to grace our presence here in the Southern Mountains? You would love it here in the Blue Ridge. Your songs are an inspiration, soulful and hauntingly familiar. I have been listening to you perform them my entire life here in Appalacia. It is as though you have been channeled here from your native Northwest. Keep up the good work.
December 5, 2008
The new album is brilliant. I am a member of the UK's Friends of American Old Time Music and Dance (FOAOTMAD) and just love this stuff.Check us out. What banjo and guitar are used on this album?
Cheers , and thanks for the music

I'm in my living room listening to JPR in Ashland, OR - one of your songs is the radio right now - sounds great. Prompted me to check out your website and album info. I know Mike G. from the wayback machine, friends with him and Korby Lenker(I play dobro too). Anyhow, thanks for the great music. Get in touch if you come through Ashland.
July 27, 2008

February 25, 2008
Really looking forward to hearing your new record Rachel, and seeing you again when you come over to England in June, Steve and Craig and myself are planning to come along to a couple of the gigs while you're over....so don't say you haven't been warned....haha
January 2, 2008
Having originally gone to see Richmond Fontaine at the Luminaire (UK) in the latter part of '07, it was a "BONUS" to see Rachel with Zak play there too. I was taken with Rachel's sweet vocals and soft country tones. I'm now enjoying the album "The Bootleggers Daughter", and fav track: Walk to you. I'm sure that the songs will sound even better when the summer months come along, lazing in the hazy sunshine!! Looking forward to Rachel's next visit to the uk later in 2008....Happy New Year one and all!!
December 10, 2007

HI Rachel and Zak
Thanks for a great evening at the house concert in York.
What about a cover ofr Lucinda's Real live bleeding fingers... next time?
Also, i thought you said the mandolin wasn't Rock n Roll? Check out (very briefly) Maestro Alex Gregory
I'll look forward to future albums and visits.

My dad (incredibly snobby blue grass lover) absolutely loved your CD. He wants to know when you are going to tour southeast Alaska--I think you might be too big for that now!
May 10, 2007
Heck of a show at the Tractor on Saturday night. I hope your mom loved the serenade! Have spent the whole week listening to the record and I"m blown away. It's incredible. Whispering Bob knows what he's talking about. Can't wait to see another show.
May 10, 2007

March 4, 2007
Heard you for the first time last night on the Bob Harris show in the UK. Was hooked after about 5 seconds of Sunshine girl.
Look forward to hearing the whole album.
February 28, 2007
Hey Rachel - talked w/ you last night at the Aladdin. Told you you had me at the first verse of Sunshine Girl. You said you are a sucker for waltzes. You signed my cd and I stayed up till 3 playing along with my geetar - still made it to work by 7:30am! I'm trying to figure out the lyrics...."Paint your blues (something about tongue) Can you help? I really look forward to seeing and hearing you again. Ran any barrels lately? :) Jeff

I was at Seabold last night and really enjoyed your music. Great vocals, guitar playing and original style. I write a monthly column about music on the island for Bainbridgebuzz.com and am doing a feature this month on Seabold. What is the name of the mandolin player who performed with you. He ws outstanding as well so I wanted to be sure to include his name in my article.
