Former Synergy promoter launches new firm
Scottish concert promoter Brian Reynolds has launched a new Glasgow-based live music firm called 432 Presents.

The new venture follows Reynold’s decision to part company with Synergy Concerts, where he has worked for six years with that firm’s founder Grainne Braithwaite-Vedamanikam.

Braithwaite-Vedamanikam will continue to run Synergy, though many of its people and projects will move over to Reynold’s new business.

Through 432 Presents, Reynolds will continue to operate Glasgow venues The Hug And Pint and Blue Arrow Jazz Club, and will also still promote The National Whisky Festival Of Scotland. Among other projects, collaborations will also continue with Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival and with the Edinburgh International Festival each August.

Reynolds and Braithwaite-Vedamanikam say that the decision to part ways is “entirely amicable” and “presents an exciting opportunity for the strategic development of both companies”.
