Modern Music / Dawsons


Modern Music was taken over by Dawsons a couple of years ago.

The CD section, and sheet music sections were larger when it was Modern Music. But more space has been devoted to instruments since Dawsons took over.

Dawsons started selling off the CDs a couple of weeks back, and are now selling off the instruments.

Above Modern Music many Abingdon children learned to play the drums, guitar, and keyboard. It used to be a quite an exciting climb, up the metal fire escape from the Market Place Carpark.

Great Blog!
Interesting, always current & far more relevant than that excuse for a so-called local newspaper (Abingdon, Wantage, Didcot, Wallingford, anything national which may have the most miniscule tenuous link to something local! - Herald).
Keep up the brilliant work

Such a shame to see Dawsons/Modern Music go. Over the last twenty years I have bought seven guitars, two keyboards and two drum machines there! (not to mention countless CDs)
