Small World Music Featured In "Tompkins Weekly"

We're grateful at Small World Music for the article in the new issue of Tompkins Weekly that features our business - a local, independent music store.

(The picture of us was not the daffiest-looking they took, probably. We look a little Cheshire-catty, but we could look worse.)

As the article notes, "Burke makes sure to have music by artists performing shows in town, such as Sharon Jones and Emmylou Harris." Right now, that also includes George Thorogood and Joan Baez.

"At the same time," reporter Stephen Kimball continues, "he offers the latest releases. That includes recent Grammy-winners Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, and Pete Seeger." Right now, it also includes U2, Neko Case, Fleet Foxes, Animal Collective, and Van Morrison's new re-working of "Astral Weeks."

The article concludes, very simply, "Shop there." Nice!

Thanks again, Mr. Kimball, and photographer Skip Thorne.
