“Scotland’s Queen of Vintage jazz & Blues” (OCWeekly) Ali Affleck returns to The Spoonful with The Gin Mill GeniesAward winning vocalist and percussionist, Ali works her dual heritage of New Orleanian vibrancy and Scottish cheekiness to present a riot of uplifting hot roots jazz and smouldering bawdy blues!
Held together with sprinklings of Creole and French for a solidly seasoned New Orleans vibe. Not only a vocal powerhouse and musical storyteller, she is also a historian and raconteur. Unsurprising, being the Great Great Niece of Dame Nellie Melba!
Her exceptional stagecraft and facts about the music she presents have secured her regular work with the BBC, STV and at worldwide festivals from the French quarter fest to Ascona jazz festival .
