Hi Thad. I'll always remember our lessons together at Wildwood in Arcata. Your music theory got through, but I'm still working on the fingerstyle you taught me! Great to hear your music on the Internet. Keep on pickin' man. Fin

Hey Thad, saw you perform with Tom Russell at the Soiled Dove in Denver,You guys were great! Your guitar playing is exceptional, my favorite solo: Guadalupe. The Old Blues Masters riffs were spot on. See you next time around. Reid

Dear Thad,

I have been a fan of Kurtis (and you) since I first heard you at The Buster House. My friend Gloria and I had front row seats on the floor against the wall and we were so giggly and excited.
I see you are going on tour again but I would like to hear you play soon. Are you two still doing the Thursday thing?
I have to work Fridays, but only 4 hours so maybe I can stay out past 8 pm. I've been on light duty with a messed up rotary cuff, so I can't sit in with you guys this round, sorry.
Love your friend Jenny!

It was a joy for us to see you last night playing the Cactus Cafe with Tom Russell. It had been at least a decade since we last saw you perform. Your skill and stage presence remain amazing. Thanks


November 23, 2011

I saw you last night on INDIAN SCHOOL ROAD at the Rhythm Room with Mr. Russell, I've never heard yours or Toms music before, but now that I have I can't stop listening to it. :) You two rocked last night!!! My dad and brother thoroughly enjoyed the show. Please come back to Az again sooooon.

Great performance at the Bullingdon, Oxford, loved your music - can't stop playing your CD!! I'm looking forward to your next UK visit


July 16, 2011

Thad, Thanks for your GREAT concert on Bainbridge Island. I hear a lot of local musicians, and it was a gift to hear a true professional. Your variety of songs was astounding, and kept the audience attentive and content. I loved your background stories, and enjoyed hearing about the depth of your life-long involvement in music. But best of all, of course, your guitar playing was magnificent! Thanks for making the trip north. I hope you'll come this way again.

Just want to say Thanks for a wonderful weekend of music. My wife Stacey and I saw you and Tom at the Tractor and then took the kids to Vancouver. Aaron and Owen are dyed in the wool fans now.


June 11, 2010

Thad, enjoyed listening to you and Tom at Jammin Java. You talked to my buddy Scott and me as you exited. I will find your CDs at some point when I have cash :-) I see your tastes align with mine as I am also a big jazz fan of Monk and Rollins and Brownie. But as a 55 year old just learning to play the guitar I am finding some real joy (I never found on Trombone, trumpet or piano) even though I don't yet match your 60s era play alongs as noted in your Bio. I can actually play along! Thanks for the great show, talk and I'll catch you and Tom again sometime. Enjoy that tour with the Flatlanders on the Cumbres and Toltec. BTW, I must be doing something right, my son loves Joe Ely and my daughter is taking up the Mandolin.... Regards, JD

I'm so glad that you joined with Tom Russell, because if you didn't, I probably would have never heard your beautiful music. I suppose there really is a God!

Saw you and Tom at Sanctuary in Chatham. Never heard of you but boy, what a pleasant surprise! That's the beauty of Sanctuary Concerts--I've discovered a lot of new (to me) music over the past five/six years. Look forward to seeing you again when you're in the neighborhood.


May 5, 2010

Love the website, Thad! I miss you. We crossed paths in Austin. I hope to get to see you sometime soon!


April 30, 2010

Heard about you from my friend Trisha who was on the Kings of CA music train. She always brings great music back from Roots to Rails for our road trips. Hope to see you sometime at Freight and Salvage in Berkeley or Studio E in Sebastopol.


April 18, 2010

I heard you play in bergen (Norway) at Madam Felle in February. Bought your CD "Me talkin' to me", and have played it ever since. Down loaded it on my Ipod and Iphone. I just been on to your homepage and ordered your other CDs. Hope to see you back in Bergen soon - may be at blues festival ???!!
