James Morrison has announced an open-air date in Northampton next year as part of the Alive at Delapre Park series of gigs taking place in July 2013.

With his unique, rootsy soul sound, James is established as one of the UK’s most respected singer-songwriters. His first two albums ‘Undiscovered’ and ‘Songs for You, Truths for Me’ has sold a total of 4.5m copies and yielded ten singles including ‘You give me something’, ‘Wonderful World’ and ‘Broken Strings’ featuring Nelly Furtado.

His acclaimed third album ‘Awakening’ features classic but contemporary folk-soul songs.

James Morrison has sold out arena tours and gigged across the world. Born in Rugby, he said he is "looking forward to playing Delapre Park, which promises to be a special gig in the heart of the town.”

Brit ‘best male’ award winner Morrison will close the Alive at Delapre Park three-day event with his Sunday night gig.

James Morrison plus guests will be performing at:

Delapre Park, London Road, Northampton on Sunday 21 July 2013.
