Izzy is BBC Music Introducing Award-winner and official champion of Record Store Day 2017.

She will be performing an intimate acoustic set at neighbouring Cafe Thirty8 from around 4pm, and signing copies of her special edition Record Store Day 7-inch single.

“I’m really excited to be returning to Sound Knowledge in Marlborough for a very special Record Store Day signing and acoustic performance,” said Izzy.

In true Sound Knowledge tradition, it will be an early start for die-hard record collectors, who are expected to start queueing at 6am ahead of an 8am opening.

Fans will be let into the store 10 at a time to browse the limited edition releases – and bulk buying of limited edition releases will be forbidden, to discourage carpet baggers.

And the vinyl-related fun will continue into Sunday, with the return of Record Store Day Live on Sunday (April 23) with an afternoon of live music featuring Sound Knowledge favourite Nick Harper, west country trio Port Erin, Britpoppers HOO HAs, blues rockers Meeking, and folk singer Reggie Roberts between noon and 6pm at

Sound Knowledge proprietor Roger Mortimer said: “2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the global event – and the 10th year SK has taken part – and it's set to be bigger than ever with almost 600 limited edition releases hitting the shelves.”
