A LOCAL musician whose day job includes brand awareness and promotion is one of the people behind a free afternoon workshop on band marketing being held just outside Munlochy .
Mark Allison – whose latest line-up All The Colours played Belladrum recently – has teamed up with Bob Bull of Glachbeg Croft Education Centre to offer the workshop next Saturday (Sept 21), from 1-6pm.
Speakers from both the music and creative industries will share their skills and knowledge in sessions including how to brand your band, get gigs, market your band on the web, get your band reviewed and record your music.
Speakers include John Clark of Bis – the first unsigned Scottish band to appear on Top Of The Pops in 1996 – who also replaced Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos in The Amphetameanies. John is also a producer, having engineered and co-produced for both Franz Ferdinand and Mylo. You can also hear John’s music under his artist moniker Debukas.
There will be question and answer sessions with the speakers and an information pack to take away.
Refreshments will be available for a small donation.
Places are booking up fast, so for further information contact Bob at Glachbeg on 01463 811923 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You’ll find the venue on the small road between the Munlochy junction on the A9 and Tore. IV1 3XD.
