Hi Tommy!

I *love* the new DVD/CD, 'Live and Solo in Pensacola, Florida'. As usual, seeing you play is both a feast to the ears and eyes. I love your impish sense of humor as well.

When are you coming Down Under next? I am disabled, and would plan well ahead to see you play anywhere in the Sydney area. As a fellow player, although nowhere near your stature, I pray that one day I can see you play for myself - and hope that you come to Oz in the near future.. I'd be knocked out.

Bless you for being so successful around the world. I wrote to Gina once when I first saw just how far you'd come since I was last in touch with what you were doing. I have a wealth of audio to catch up with, and do so with a huge smile on my face!

God willing, seeya in Oz, maybe Sydney area, sometime soon. I used to listen to material that you and Phil did at Sound on Stage here in Sydney. That was a real pleasure, and a goal to shoot for. Still aiming!

Fondest regards,
Jim Caldwell

Dear Tommy,

My first live musical memory was The Vancouver Opera's presentation of "Tosca" at the Orpheum when I was 3 years old. I was absolutely riveted throughout. I have been attending a minimum of 8 concerts/yr since then. My father was a classical guitarist who started on the balilika when he was 4 years old and was touring Western Canada with a musical troupe from age 12-17. He took our family to flamenco & classical guitar concerts all over the place. My mother, classical pianist, honorary life member of NOACCA & the OSO, has a seat named after her in Toronto's Roy Thomson Hall and a perpetual music scholarship in her name at the University of Kansas. My parents made friends with many musicians & regularly hosted house concerts as well as helped organise performances in large venues. Throughout my childhood, I attended live performances (some artists, several times & in intimate settings), by Andres Segovia, Leona Boyd, Eddie Bickert amongst countless less well known guitarists and many very famous classical musicians. Our family would travel to Vancouver, Calgary, Spokane & Seattle to hear musicians, especially guitarists, of note and my parents were successful in enticing many talented musicians to play in the Okanagan.

My husband and I have been fans of your music since a friend gave us "Can't Get Enough" in 1996, long a family favourite. When we realised that you were coming to BC, we were prepared to fly to Victoria to hear you until we found out about the concert in Revelstoke, only a 2 hour drive from home (bonus to be in such an intimate venue!).

Last night was the most amazing and delightful concert I have EVER attended. Having only heard your recordings, I had a limited idea of your tremendous musicality (both my husband and I actually thought you had a back-up band and superior sophisticated mixing). I was thunderstruck to watch you play all four parts on one guitar. I was either laughing, whooping or just grinning the biggest grin ever. My face hurt at the end!

I have sent a request to a friend of ours, Jay Scott, the General Manager of the Salmon Arm Roots & Blue Festival, to include you in the line-up for August 2015. I do hope you will return to BC in the not too distant future. I will tell everyone I know to buy tickets!

Thanks for memories to rival Tosca!

Dear Tommy, thankyou for coming to Victoria on Vancouver Island! You put on an amazing show and I hope you come again. I'm an avid guitar player and have been very inspired by your music, it has taken me deeper into Jerry Reed and Chet and other finger styles. Enjoy your Canadian tour!!

Hello Tommy,
I've come to you for guidance. I don't know if you can help me or if you have the moment to help me understand myself. I'm going through a crisis that maybe you can relate to. You're the only one that I know of that may have ben in a similar situation. It's about sacrifice.
I'm married with 3 amazing children. I've been playing music for over 20 years. And I find myself at war with myself. I have a drive to be accomplished, to work as hard as I can to make the most of my talents. I just feel like it's not possible to fulfill my goals musically while giving most of my heart to my family. Music is how I make ends meet. Playing in a cover band. Doing solo acoustic in restaurants or an acoustic duo with my singer. It's all I know.....and love....
When I think of my situation, I think of what you must have gone through (even though I have no idea) I don't know what could have possibly split you from your children and their mother. I'm not trying to pretend I have a clue. You seem to be a pure hearted soul that would do anything for your loved ones. As I am... or try to be.
I balled my eyes out on my wife's shoulder tonight because I feel I need to make a decision between my love for my family and my love for my music. Two seperate loves that I feel are pulling me apart. I feel I have great potential to do great things, If I put in the work. But I can't put in the work, because I feel guilty if I'm not fulfilling every possible moment of happiness to my kids and wife.
I don't know anyone that genuinely understands where I'm coming from. But I feel that you could. I'm just lost and I can't find my way to happiness or fulfillment. "Those Who Wait," I suppose. A matter of time maybe.
Like I said, maybe you can relate. I don't know your personal life so this is a shot in the dark. I'm not very open with my thoughts and feelings. When I found myself crying uncontrollably tonight, I knew I had to reach out to someone that may have an idea of what I'm dealing with in my head.
How do I balance the two? What sacrifice should be made? No matter what, I'm there for my family. I don't mean to sound like I would abandon them. I just know, if I want to be successful in my own eyes, I must make sacrifices.
I'm sorry to burden you with my story. You've been one of the greatest inspirations in my life. I thank you for everything you've brought to my universe. I want to do the same for others. I'm just lost.
sincerely,
Justin
