BIRMINGHAM jazz singer Sara Colman will be appearing at the brand new Mostly Jazz Festival on Sunday July 4 in Birmingham’s Moseley Park.
Sara, who has lived in Erdington for over 10 years, caught the attention of the city’s leading promoters Birmingham Jazz and was subsequently chosen to headline their stage at the festival.
She will be sharing the bill with the touring jazz legend Courtney Pine, the recently reformed Cymande II and leaders in the new wave of British jazz Portico Quartet.
Sara first came to Birmingham to study at the Birmingham Conservatoire and has stayed ever since.
Now the jazz vocal tutor at the same institution, Sara is a key element of Birmingham’s bustling jazz scene as both performer and teacher.
Committed to supporting new talent and working with Birmingham’s local jazz musicians, the two day Mostly Jazz Festival features a second stage dedicated to emerging artists with acts booked by Birmingham’s premier jazz club The Yardbird as well as Birmingham Jazz.
Sara is one of many acts from the Midlands region set to perform on July 4.
As well as unsigned artists The Mostly Jazz Festival weekend will feature extra special performances from pioneering jazz orchestra the Sun Ra Arkestra, South American 12 piece Quantic and his Combo Barbáro, Hammond organ legends the James Taylor Quartet and Jools Holland favourites Polar Bear.
