2013 British Jazz Awards Back Home in Birmingham

Big Bear Music proudly announce that the 2013 British Jazz Awards are “coming home to Birmingham 27 years after their inception in the City”.

The Awards were first launched in 1986 by Humphrey Lyttelton and Benny Green at The Grand Hotel. This year the ceremony will be held on Wednesday, 10th July, in association with
The Birmingham Jewellery Quarter at the stunning St Paul’s Church in the Quarter,
as part of The Birmingham International Jazz & Blues Festival.

2012 Awards: Derek Nash, Alan Barnes, Karen Sharp and Jamie Brownfield

Jamie Brownfield

The evening will kick off at 7.30pm with the presentations featuring the usual irreverent acceptance speeches delivered with all the panache and humour devotees have come to expect of the recipients. This will be followed by a jazz session of breathtaking quality from the country’s very best jazz musicians and a late night party at the nearby Drop Forge to which all are welcome.

Reservations for the Awards can be made by emailing [email protected] or telephoning 0121 454 7020

Counting down to the 29th Birmingham International Jazz & Blues Festival [July 5th – 14th] and we’re preparing to welcome the return visit of Shreveport Rhythm. This hot little quintet from Hamburg, led by clarinet star Helge Sachs were such a hit at the 2012 Festival that a return booking was inevitable. Their speciality is hot jazz, jive and swing classics from the 1920s – and the dancers love them!
