New web­site aims to pro­mote lo­cal mu­sic

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

MU­SI­CIANS in Poyn­ton have come to­gether to cre­ate a one-stop shop to help pro­mote their gigs.

The web­site www. poyn­ton­ and its TTwit­ter feed LiveinPoyn­ton were born out of the suc­cess­ful fes­ti­val Spring­board Poyn­ton in Septem­ber.

Mu­si­cians and vis­i­tors iden­ti­fied a need for a sin­gle point of con­tact to find out what’s on in the town.

Work­ing with mu­sic fans Les Ren­shaw and Mike Gal­lagher, parish coun­cil­lors Ge­off King, who was the brain­child of Spring­board, launched the web­site.

Ge­off said: “This new web­site cov­ers all mu­si­cal gen­res from clas­si­cal to rock to folk, jazz and be­yond; the only pro­viso be­ing that the event must be staged in Poyn­ton. Poyn­ton Live, which also en­ables lo­cal mu­si­cians to place their pro­file on the site, is al­ready build­ing an en­thu­si­as­tic fol­low­ing and will surely be­come the ‘must go to’ re­source for Poyn­ton. The ser­vice is free to lo­cal mu­si­cians and pro­mot­ers.”
