Uncle Randy at my church Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

It's been 15 or 20 years since I bought my first Randy Stonehill LP, but I never had heard him live--until last night! He played at our church in Grand Rapids, Mich. What a treat! He does a terrific show, and hung around afterwards until everyone had gone home except the guy turning out the lights. He is quite likeable and approachable. I also never really had an appreciation for what a terrific guitar player his is. He played mostly newer stuff, including a couple of songs from his new childrens album. I bought a copy, but haven't listened to it yet.
One TST story. Randy was talking about the Uncle Stonehill's Hat recording sessions, where "grown men were laughing and giggling uncontrollably." He said that at one point TST, who co-wrote many of the songs and produced, looked at him and said, "Can you believe we can make a living doing this?" Life is good.
Now if only I could catch DA live . . . . The Stonehill show reminded me of the let-down of the Legends show cancellation last fall.
By the way, Randy said that LN is re-releasing Welcome to Paradise on CD. It's in final production, should be available in the next couple of weeks. Also, he's doing an acoustic album of original tunes, due out in Sept. Groovy!

I have been to many shows, even saw Uncle Larry once, but I have never seen Uncle Randy. He was here in NorCal the same night of a hardcore show at my church. I had to work the show instead of going to see him. Bummer.

I got to see Randy solo at a Baptist church in Baton Rouge a good number of years ago. He is indeed a great performer solo and a purty durn good guitarist as well. Concerts like that are few and far between down here and I happened to stumble across it when at a seminar. Thankfully we were able to take it in. Thanks for bringing up the memory.

Great to hear that Uncle Rand is still on the move! He came to NZ with Phil Keaggy (plus Tim C and David R) years ago and played a great concert. I drove 4 hours to see them.
How about a DA tour of New Zealand??
