RECORD STORE DAY 2017 is Saturday, April 22nd, and the list of special releases is out! Join us and celebrate the 10th anniversary of the most important day in indie-record-store history!

Unbelievable as it may seem, the date fast approaching (Saturday, April 22nd), the entire batch of collectible goodies will be here, we’ve got some in-store performance news coming up, and RECORD STORE DAY 2017 will rock once again! We are bringing y’all the swinging-est, funky-est Record Store Day ever (again). Horizon opens at 9AM for the 2017 LIMITED EDITION special RECORD STORE DAY RELEASES UNFURLING – we have got a ton of them – over 300 different selections. Some just a few copies each, some nice quantities. Its first come first served. In the interest of fairness to all: limit one per customer of a particular title – buy all you care to, but only one of each title per person. It’s insane and confusing and a lot of fun, but that’s rock n roll eh? And it will be full on all day long.

SARAH JAROSZ will play a sold-out show on Saturday, April 1 at the Peace Center, but you can stop by Horizon Records at 5pm on Saturday for a brief live in-store taste of her music!

SARAH JAROSZ will play a sold-out show on Saturday, April 1 at the Peace Center, but you can stop by Horizon Records at 5pm on Saturday for a brief live in-store taste of her music!

It’s hard to believe that singer and multi-instrumentalist Jarosz is only 25 years old, because she’s packed a lot of experience into that quarter-century. By the time she signed a record deal with Sugar Hill in her senior year of high school, she’d learned to play clawhammer banjo, guitar, and mandolin. And around the same time that her first album came out in 2009, she enrolled in the New England Conservatory of Music, graduating with honors in 2013 with a degree in contemporary improvisation.

Bluegrass-jazzers OLD SALT UNION are comin’ to town on MARCH 30th! They’ll play an in-store here at 4:30, then head over to THE SPINNING JENNY!

Bluegrass-jazzers OLD SALT UNION are comin’ to town on MARCH 30th! They’ll play an in-store here at 4:30, then head over to THE SPINNING JENNY!

Old Salt Union is known for playing music by their own set of rules. While the men who make up the group are not complete rebels, they are certainly focused on exposing people to a purer, more exciting, and more original form of music. Drawing influence from Bill Monroe, Sam Bush and Del McCoury, to jazz great Bill Evans and Composer Danny Elfman, it’s obvious the group has a unique and broad genetic make-up. What makes Old Salt Union special is their ability to further explore the jazz and blues roots of bluegrass in a mature and refreshing manner. With in-depth musical compositions, a catchy hook, and a high- energy metaphorical punch to the gut, they are truly front runners in the new generation of string music.

The soulful roots-rocker RANDALL BRAMBLETT returns to Greenville on May 26th with a show at DR. MAC ARNOLD’S BLUES RESTAURANT!

The soulful roots-rocker RANDALL BRAMBLETT returns to Greenville on May 26th with a show at DR. MAC ARNOLD’S BLUES RESTAURANT!

Randall Bramblett’s distinguished body of work is defined by a triple threat career as an acclaimed solo artist, an in-demand songwriter and a first call sideman. Among the artists who’ve recorded and performed Bramblett’s songs are Bettye LaVette, Hot Tuna, Delbert McClinton and most notably, Bonnie Raitt, who opened her 2014 Grammy winner, Slipstream, with one of his songs. In the ’70s he was a member of the seminal jazz/rock group Sea Level and as a sideman has toured with Gregg Allman, Widespread Panic and Levon Helm. Steve Winwood was such a fan of Bramblett’s keyboard, sax and vocal performances that he made Bramblett his go-to tour mate for 16 years, including the ’94 Traffic reunion.

It resounds like a musical motif through his life and career. He inspires millions with his open-hearted, emotive playing, whether it be in intimate recitals or on the grandest of stages – such as the 2014 World Cup concert in Rio, with Placido Domingo, to celebrate the final game; the 56th and 57th GRAMMY Award two years in a row, where he performed with Metallica and Pharrell Williams; the Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where more than four billion people around the world viewed his performance; the Last Night of the Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall, or the Liszt 200th birthday concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Charles Dutoit which was broadcast live in more than 300 movie theaters around the United States and 200 cinemas across Europe (the first classical music cinema cast to be headlined by a solo artist).
