Birchfield Jazz Festival Creative Ensemble 2020

The BJF Creative Ensemble has been set up to provide an alternative learning groud for young Birmingham based artists, which is cross arts, cross genre and performance based and draws on Yoruba Arts and Culture as a stimulus.

It will offer the young artists an opportunity to: learn aboutone another’s work, collaborate – virtually- with one another and create their own work. BJFCE is linked to the Birchfield Jazz Festival, in order to bring young talent into the area and celebrate the young talent that originates here. Wehope to present a live performance by BJFCE later in 2020.

Tis year we feature 2 visual Artists and 7 musicians: Dotta Beats, David Cefai, Xhosa Cole, Nathan England Jones, Shiyi Li, Maja Pluta, Reuben Reynolds, Gifted T and Tom Tyrrell.

"We look forward to welcoming you to the 2020 Birchfield Jazz Festival Creative Ensemble! We are featuring some of the finest and gifted young artists from all over Britain in this year's stellar line up; We look forward to seeing you on the 30th October 2020 at creativeensemble.birchfieldjazzfestival.com at 7:30pm!"
