COUNTRY CROONER AN OLD FORGE FAVORITE
By Jeffrey Federowicz
For The Daily Item
There is no denying that local musician Bob Randall savors his country roots.
"I’ve always been drawn to country music. There’s just something about it, about how a country song can tell a story that so many people can connect with because country music is about everyday life and all the good and bad that goes along with it," he said.
"From love, loss, hardship and regret to happiness and fun, country music tells the stories of our life in a real and honest way." Tonight, the country crooner will play some songs and share some stories during a two-hour acoustic gig at Old Forge Brewing Company in Danville. "I’ll mostly be playing my original music along wit! h a few classic country songs from musicians like Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe and Merle Haggard," Randall said. "The show will be a lot of fun and feature a lot of great music and the chance for people to get out and forget about their problems."
A fixture on the local music scene for many years as a solo act or as part of a band, Randall projects a level of confidence that comes from decades of performing and interacting with fellow musicians and fans.
Based in Milton, Randall has performed regionally and nationally including gigs in the country music capital of the world, Nashville.
"I’ve played at a lot of different places over the years and have been fortunate to share my music with so many people not just in American but around the world with online radio stations. If you ta! ke a look at the comments section o! f my website, you'll see remarks from people around the world, he said.
Randall’s music has topped many online country music stations and recently won the Clays Country Radio Male Artist of the Year Award for 2016.
"I’m very lucky to have such a wonderful group of fans and friends that enjoy my music," Randall said. "Every time I have a show, either by myself or with a band, I always make sure to do my very best and make sure the audience has fun."
He latest CD, "You Started a Fire" includes some of his best original tunes thus far. It’s that type of music that keeps his local fans attending his shows.
"Bob Randall has a warm country voice and puts on a welcoming and comfortable performance," said Patrick Fisher, music coordinator for Old Forge Brewing Company. "Bob is a favorite of our monthly Open Jam performers.
