Friday night live at Transistor: poetic folk blues from Aaron Randolph. 8:00 p.m. Free (donations suggested).
Aaron Randolph was incubated under the lamplight of Appalachian folk, gospel, and blues music in Southeastern Virginia. As a young guitarist, he quickly latched onto the blues tradition, which led him towards the art of honest lyricism. With a family tree practically comprised of musical instruments, there was no hope but for him to learn the art of musical expression.
In 2013 he graduated with a masters in theology and art from Fuller Theological Seminary. Thus influenced, his poetry is earthy and lofty at once. Mixing life's ultimate concerns with its simplest pleasures -- such as life after death and chocolate cake -- Randolph weaves stories and experiences into each song with striking but simple melodies. His 2015 album CAVACO can be found on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.
For his performance at Transistor, Aaron Randolph will play a mixture of folk and blues using the banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, with thoughtful lyrics.
