The best in soul, blues, RnB, jazz and folk will be on stage at Cannon Hill Park, Edgbaston from Thursday July 9 – Sunday July 12 thanks to the leading live music and dining venue in St Paul’s Square and music sponsor BRMB Radio.
The Red Lemons (Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon), the Wize Guyz (Friday afternoon and evening, and Saturday afternoon and evening), Up 4 the Downstroke (Saturday evening and Sunday aftenoon), Gino Baptiste Trio (Thursday evening), Ben Drummond (Sunday afternoon) and Urban Intro (Friday afternoon) will mark the Jam House’s fourth successive involvement in the annual al fresco food and drink extravaganza.
Taste of Birmingham 2009 features worldwide cuisine from 15 of the Midlands’ top restaurants.

It successfully combines great music, great food and a terrific atmosphere – something visitors can really look forward to at Taste of Birmingham.
