In the age of Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal, yoyu might not expect a spinning disc of lacquer to mean much in a high-tech industry like the music business. Yet, vinyl records have been making a comeback for over a decade.
On Nov. 11 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., Musical Roots Productions will be hosting the Carrboro CD and Record Show. There will be 42 tables full with CDs and vinyl records at the show.
Gerry Williams owns and operates Musical Roots Productions, a company that produces music festivals and events while selling CDs and vinyl records. Though Williams closed Musical Roots’ physical location in 2000, he continues to sell music online and run the Carrboro CD and Record show twice a year: Once in the fall and once in the spring.
Montgomery Morris has been going to the show twice a year since briefly after he graduated from UNC in 2005.
“It’s got sort of a reunion vibe because it’s all of these record enthusiasts who only see each other twice a year,” Morris said.
