Rachel Harrington: Guestbook

February 24, 2019

Hi Rachel,
I was just listening to you on Pandora. I am going to see if I can find your music on Spotify. Your song writing is amazing. I hope you have been doing well. My daughter just moved to Colorado so I am going to visit her and do some gold mining while there. Getting ready to start a tv show about detecting for gold in water. Thinking bout writing songs. Been through a lot of heart ache in the last few years so it is time to put the pencil to paper and pick up the guitar. We will be listening to your music on the drive to Co in a couple weeks. Hope your family is doing well. Oh, in case you don’t remember who I am. I was Marco and Teddy’s friend Dan Lingo. I used to sit and listen to you guys practice in 1990 or so. Hope to see you on tour some time.

Dear Ms Harrington,
Thank you for you great show in Leeds last night (27.10.18 - 10.27.18 for you). I’m really enjoying Celilo Falls (you sold me as a Geography Graduate with you explanation of Spokane). If it isn’t an intrusion, I wonder about the bleak (atmospheric but bleak) cover portrait? Anyway, thank you for your great music, Witt banter and a great way to spend Saturday night.

Many thanks Rachel for a superb gig in Poole on October 6. Loved the songs and anecdotes of many of my heroes - John Prine, Guy Clark and Steve Earle. Just sorry that the crowd did not do you justice. Best wishes for your forthcoming event!

Thanks for the chat afterwards and please hurry back.

Hi Rachel! I don't know if you remember my wife Christy and I, but you spent some time at our coffeehouse in Port Angeles, WA - "The Blackbird" years ago. We still play the lovely Celilo Falls in our home and think back fondly of our interaction. We are looking forward to your new music. Hope all is well with you and yours!

Hi Rachel
I have just heard your Celia Falls album. It is fantastic, great songs, tight music with your powerful voice.
So sorry to have missed your tour in the UK earlier this year.
Would you send me details of your album Muse, including postage to Bristol, England.
Do you have any plans to Tour the UK Next year?
Thank you

Hi Rachel,

It was wonderful to meet you at Green Note this evening. Thank you so much for taking the time to sign all my CDs! It was a real pleasure to hear you live. Thank you for such a special evening! I hope you come back to see us here in England very soon.

All the best to you,


PS Do you have a list of the tracks for Muse? I have just noticed they are not written on the cover.

About 2 years ago I heard a song by Rachel while driving to work-i didnt know either the song or Rachel before but the music was so interesting that I had to search for more Information - it ended in buying all her albums. As a great fan of real handmade music she is a great talent and I really like her music- there could be lot more musicians doing things like her- but in Germany you do not often hear that kind of music on the radio- too much mainstream and pop ... so you have to search for yourself. With Rachel I found a new interesting artist.

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?

Hi Rachel,
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

Hi Rachel,
It was great to have you and Steve staying with us during the UK leg of the 2010 tour with Rod and although we had to wait until the end we really enjoyed the Roots gig at the Queens Head, Rothbury. Sue and I hope you have a wonderful time in mainland Europe and a safe trip home.

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 good to see 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 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.

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

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.

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?

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!!
