Duck Son and Pinker are closing down in Bath

A wonderful old-style music shop which probably had more stock than turnover...


Oh dear ! Another one bites the dust !

I had a HUGE disappointment when I went to Rowlands music shop in Cardiff last year. 
It was one of my favrouite haunts in my twenties. 
You could browse through these massive folders of sheet music and find gems and bargains galore.
It has turned into a kind of minimal Ikea-theme-styled virtual shop. 
Two nice girls, two music books, a couple of recorders and a lot of blonde wood.

Bof. 
Don't you just hate the internet... 
Except that you can find everything you want if you just know how to google, and sometimes you can download the pdf straight away.

Maybe it's progress after all.
