Performing in the Cluny on Friday night, former Winchester School choir boy and fully trained actor, Johnny Flynn is on the road again as he tours his 2013 album Country Mile. The album is Flynn’s fourth studio album and reached critical acclaim with its September release. With a hectic acting schedule, including a leading role alongside Anne Hathaway in Song One, which is set for release later this year, South African born Flynn has delayed touring until now. With his folk sound and questionably punk lyrics Flynn knows how to deliver when it comes to a live show, so anyone heading to the show is likely to be in for a treat. If you’re one of those lucky folk, why not pop in with us for a pre-show pint?
With the age of digital music taking over at the turn of the century, record sales dropped to an all time low as people started getting their music at the click of a button for free. Almost in spite of this, independent music stores kept their doors open, pushing vinyl sales on music purists and reminding them why they love music so much. To many, music is music, no matter what way it comes, but to the real die-hard music fan/collector, it’s not just the music; it’s the artwork, the sleeve notes and the feel of the physical record in your hand. It is for this reason that Record Shop Day was created in America in 2007.
Record Shop Day is a day where fans, sellers and musicians can unite together to celebrate their love of music, with special albums and singles being released for the occasion along with a number of live appearances. In a city boosting some of the best record stores in the city, Record Shop Day has plenty going on with stores such as RPM opening their doors from 10am to 5pm, offering punter free breakfast and record giveaways. After this long day of music, why not pop in for a pie and a pint to keep the magic of music alive?
