World Records is ready to help you get CDs, LPs, and tickets for our upcoming concerts.

Speaking of concerts, we have some big artists coming up:
Sierra Hull, Karla Bonoff, Sugaray Rayford, Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Samantha Fish & Jesse Dayton, and Rosanne Cash.

Everyone wants to be proud of their town. But it takes effort to have a town to be proud of. And when it comes to World Records concerts, it takes a little effort, but the rest is really easy, and FUN, and INVIGORATING! The artists we select to feature at our theater, they are the foundation of the music version of the food pyramid – artists that aspiring artists draw inspiration from, recording artists, world-wide touring artists, artists whose life work is to spread meaning through music.

Sierra Hull
Friday October 14, 2022
Tickets on Sale Now!



Sierra Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin-player, astonishing audiences and fellow-musicians alike. Now a seasoned touring musician, Hull has delivered her most inspired, accomplished, and mature recorded work to date; no small feat. Weighted Mind is a landmark achievement, not just in Sierra Hull’s career, but in the world of folk-pop, bluegrass, and acoustic music overall.

With instrumentation comprised largely of mandolin, bass, and vocals, this is genre-transcending music at its best, with production by Béla Fleck and special harmony vocal guests Alison Krauss, Abigail Washburn, and Rhiannon Giddens adding to the luster.

Hello there Ladies and Gentlemen –
Sure has been nice to have folks back in World Records, flipping through CDs and LPs, checking out the Boytone record players and Audio-Technica turntables, picking out seats for upcoming concerts, getting just the right color WR t-shirts, and filling out to-s and from-s on those World Records gift certificates that every music lover longs for.

It’s easy to use the World Records Upcoming Shows Page to get up to speed about the terrific artists we have selected for upcoming concerts.

So, I hope you have a few minutes to “meet” these artists, whether or not you come to the concert.  It’s important that you know why we think a visit by these artists make our town a little better.
Thank you for taking time to read and for being the reason our store and our concerts continue!
