Nick Harper to play Marlborough gig in support of Record Store Day
Singer songwriter Nick Harper will be performing at Azuza in Marlborough as part of the festivities thrown to celebrate Record Store Day by neighbouring Sound Knowledge, the record store announced today (Wednesday).
The afternoon performance will take place on Sunday, April 21, with final details and lineup to be confirmed.
Record Store Day takes place on Saturday, April 20. Sound Knowledge will be selling an array of new titles on vinyl, including copies of a 10-inch by Nick Harper.
This week, record giant HMV announced it would be closing another 37 stores and axing 464, bringing a total of 103 shop closures and 1,500 redundancies.
Stores earmarked for closure include the firm's Swindon and Salisbury branches.
Conversely, a concert by Gabrielle Aplin at Azuza, organised by Sound Knowledge and followed by a record signing at the store, attracted a capacity crowd on Wednesday.
Her single, Please Don't Say You Love Me, was at number 3 in the midweek charts, settling at number 6 when the final top-sellers were announced on Sunday.
