It’s a big one – it’s the last one. Welcome one and all to the FINAL installment of the NN Archives.
We started this look back at Northamptonshire’s music scene following the first national coronavirus lockdown which ultimately also saw a halt of live music inside venues. We’d always planned this feature was going to be 12 months of coverage. However, we’d maybe hoped the live scene would be returning before it concluded.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this series. It’s been great digging up many, many memories of gigs from around the county from the last decade and a half.
For anyone here for the first time, this has been a monthly trawl through the thousands of photos David Jackson has taken over the years, mixing national touring acts playing in the county and musicians from the local scene.
There’s a massive amount of photos this month. You lot obviously all gig during April! This could – and probably should – have been another two or even three-parter. However, once again, because we’ve left it until the 11th hour – it’s just the one post.
You can check out May (Part One and Part Two), June (Part Three and Part Four), July (Part Five), August (Part Six), September (Part Seven), October, (Part Eight and Part Nine), November (Part 10), December (Part 11), January (Part 12), February (Part 13) and March (Part 14) via the links.
Regular plug as before, go visit https://davidtjackson.com for more content like this from the NN scene and beyond. Most of the content is on the Latest Updates page, but even the gallery page has a selection photos on now!
