Ali Affleck

With Ewan Bleach, Enrico Tomasso & Joplin Parnell and The Hot Town Tigers

The irrepressible singer, Ali Affleck and her specially assembled band and swing dancers transport you to the prohibition era, delivering good time, swinging vintage jazz, with Alison’s deep love and knowledge of early jazz vocals to the fore in New Orleans classics and songs by Clarence Williams, some knock out favourites of singers Annette Hanshaw and Sophie Tucker.

Featuring New Orleans pianist, Joplin Parnell, and multi-instrumentalist, Ewan Bleach alongside trumpeter Enrico Tomasso.
