From Gainesville FL #GNV
Rick Randlett first discovered the blues in college during the 1970’s. Influenced by the initial wave of British blues rockers he began to study the originators of the style. A move to Florida in the 1980’s led to gigs with country artists and now songs by Johnny Cash and Hank Williams sit comfortably in his show along with songs by Robert Johnson and Big Bill Broonzy.
Along with guitar and vocals, Rick is known for his lap steel work, and that instrument along with slide guitar and pedal steel all make appearances on the stage.
Rick has released five CDs, three of which have reached the top ten on the Roots Music Report blues charts. Check Rick out on YouTube, Spotify, and iTunes and make plans to take in a live show soon!
