UPDATE!! Pre-orders will NO LONGER secure a place at the in-store as we have reached capacity. Anyone who has ordered as of 3/5/16 will have a place; anyone else who arrives will be admitted on a first-come first-served basis assuming there is room in the store.
We are honoured and delighted to have Shirley Collins launch her brand new album Lodestar here at Union Music Store. Shirley officially declared our store 'open' back in November 2010 so it feels so wonderful to have her back on this stage 6 years later with her own fantastic album to launch.
There is limited space in the store, pre-order the album (from Union Music Store!) to have priority entry. Those who can not be inside for the performance can come in afterwards to have their CD or LP signed and then there will be celebratory dancing outside from the wonderful Brighton Morris Men.
Shirley Collins – legendary folk singer and one of England’s most respected song collectors – has announced her return to recording after 38 years. Lodestar is a collection of English, American and Cajun songs dating from the 16th Century to the 1950s, recorded at Shirley’s home in Lewes by Stephen Thrower and Ossian Brown of Cyclobe and produced and musically directed by Ian Kearey.
