Here’s the second part of our new monthly feature, the ‘NN Archives’. This looks at gigs in the month of May from 2013 to 2019.

For anyone who missed Part One, this 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.

Rather than look back a year at a time we’re going to do it month-by-month, to give more of an immediate dive back into NN’s musical past and to tie things into the current month.

The same shameless plug as before, Please head over to for more music photos from the NN scene and beyond. Most of the content is currently on the Latest Updates page, as the galleries are being redone at the moment.

Lots of local faces on this one.
