All this month, Oil City News is rolling out a series of tiny COVID concerts*, one-song sets from local artists who aim to lift our readers’ spirits while also sharing their gifts with the community they love.
Today’s tiny COVID concert comes to us from friend of Oil City News and former Casperite Randy Craig. Randy is a prolific recording artist who built up quite a large catalog and fan base in the Oil City before moving to Denver many years ago. In this track, Randy treats us to his take on Def Leppard’s Hysteria –playing all of the instruments himself. If you like what you hear, be sure to check out more of Randy’s music on Spotify.
This has been an especially tough time for local musicians, many of whom rely on local gigs for their livelihood. If you like what you hear, please consider tipping: https://venmo.com/Randy-Craig
