Purity all set for first ever Mostly Jazz Festival



Warwickshire’s
Purity Brewing Co. is calling on the region’s music lovers to head over
to Birmingham’s Moseley Park this weekend for the first-ever Mostly
Jazz Festival (3rd – 4th July).

Purity will be the event’s
official drinks supplier, serving both cask and bottles of its three
award-winning beers, Mad Goose, Pure UBU and Pure Gold, plus Veltins
Pilsner and Bernard Lager from its eclectic imported range, ensuring
visitors don’t get thirsty while enjoying the musical delights of
contemporary jazz, funk and soul.

Premiering this year, the
Mostly Jazz Festival is the UK’s only, one site open-air music festival
dedicated entirely to jazz, funk and soul music. Craig Charles,
presenter of the BBC 6 Music’s Funk and Soul Show, will lead the
proceedings on Saturday as festival compere and DJ-ing at the official
after-party.

Set in picturesque surroundings, the festival will
feature an eclectic mix of up and coming talent performing alongside
headline acts, Sun Ra Arkestra, Courtney Pine (pictured above), and Quantic and his Combo
Barbaro.

In addition to the music, there will also be a third
stage featuring spoken word with performances from the likes of
nationally renowned Polarbear, former Birmingham poet laureate
Dreadlockalien, and the award-winning Luke Kennard.

Paul Halsey,
Purity’s Managing Director, said: “I’m really looking forward to being
part of the first ever Mostly Jazz Festival. The Purity brand has been
created to be fresh, funky and innovative, just like the music and
artists featuring at the event. Great music and premium beers are a
first class combination. Lets just hope the sun shines on us this
weekend.”

Charlotte Payne, the festival’s Press Officer, added:
“Mostly Jazz is about showcasing the diversity of contemporary jazz in
all its forms, from avant-garde, free and modern jazz through to vocal,
song-based jazz, jazz-fusion and future jazz. It’s also about
considering jazz’s influence and relationship to other black music
art-forms such as Latin music, funk and soul.

“Mostly Jazz will
be a relaxed and fun event, so it’s great to have Purity on board as
it’s a brand that will fit in very well with the festival’s atmosphere.”
