A BOLTON singer songwriter is to play a free live session at a North West record store.

The gig will take place from 4.30pm today at HMV in Bury and comes hot off the back of the Bolton artist’s sell out headline set at Manchester’s Deaf Institute.

It has been organised as part of the chain’s Live and Local campaign.

Launched earlier this year, the scheme gives bands the opportunity to have their CDs put on sale inside HMV stores and promote them.
