It’s music all the way at Lewks store in Downham Market tomorrow morning for this year’s Record Store Day.

From 8am through to 1pm, five bands have been lined up for five hours of fantastic free music in Wales Court.

Record Store Day was initiated in the USA in 2007 and the UK followed two years later for the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music.

Here is the programme put together by the store owner Lawrence Welham and his daughter Danielle:

8am - Flint Moore: Founded in 2013 Flint Moore are a grunge rock folk band based in Norfolk. Known for their energetic sound and performances and their flexible play style.

9am - Ed Taylor: Ed Taylor has been playing guitar for 50 years. He has been in numerous bands including Brian Auger & The Trinity and has even supported The Who.

10am - The Memphis Two: A lively rock’n’roll, rockabilly and blues duo, this is a brand new act featuring Jacen Bruce on guitar and vocals, plus young Bill Martin on double slap bass and shout backs.

11am – Morganway: Fleetwood Mac vocal harmonies with punchy guitar riffs, Morganway are a country / folk / rock band from the UK. Born last year in North Norfolk’s rural outback, Morganway was formed by twin brothers Callum and Kieran Morgan. The vocal blend of lead singers Callum and Yve Mary B is at the heart of the band’s raw and melodic sound. They are joined by Kieran on lead guitar and 
Matthew Brocklehurst on keys.

Phoenix Calling - 12: Phoenix Calling began in 2012 and hail from Cambridgeshire. They have already shared the stage with the likes of The First, We Are Fiction, Tu Amore, White Clouds and Gunfire and Under the Influence to name a few. They released their debut single, Bring the Roof Down, accompanied by a music video in January 2013. They’ve also headlined the main stage at Willow Festival 2013 and played the BBC Introducing stage at Cambridge Rock Fest. Their debut album is scheduled for release in April 2015.
