Keeping the Beat: Bob Randall on meeting Johnny Cash, writing more than 200 songs

Listen to Bob Randall on a recent "Keeping the Beat" podcast to hear how Bob developed his music, where he draws his inspiration and about a special Songwriters Showcase he will be bringing to the region later this month.

Inspired by Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings and David Allan Coe, a 14-year-old Bob Randall first joined his musician father on the stage.

Later that year, he met his idol, Johnny Cash, at a gig for the June Carter family and hasn’t looked back, since writing and recording more than 200 original songs and recently wrapping a two-year recording contract in Nashville.

Songwriter Showcase

 —  —

Route 61 Roadhouse, 449 Woodlawn Avenue, Sunbury, PA 17801

Please come out and support local songwriters. Bob Randall is hosting a Nashville style Songwriter Showcase featuring six artists singing their original songs. The format is a writer’s round with three songwriters on stage at once. The first writer will sing a song, then the next will go, with each artist singing a total of three songs.

This is something new for central PA, but it works very well all over Nashville. So far we have Jeff Mamett, Leo Armbruster, Michael Lundy, Jason Yoder, and Bob Randall. The sixth artist will be announced shortly.

Artists will be available to talk with you and will have their CDs for sale.
