Birmingham Jazz presents

More top-quality music for the weekend.

Birmingham Jazz will be presenting a highly-acclaimed singer at 1,000 Trades this Friday.

The Anglo-American songstress digs into her folk, alt-country roots, with three critically acclaimed albums under her belt and a host of sparkling reviews from the British broadsheet and music press.
