Early jazz historian Ali Affleck has earned her solid reputation as the quintessential ‘go to’ vocalist for authentic trad jazz and prohibition era blues. She leads old school band Bedlam Swing with a lively repertoire that ranges from the red hot roots of jazz in the 1820s up to the 1950s. With their toe tapping set list, which includes standards from the Great American Songbook along with many lesser known songs, the band deliver a fresh and authentic approach to the roots of jazz. The Spring Sessions series will be free to view, however if you are able to donate to support Glasgow Jazz Festival's Community & Education Fund, please do so via the DONATE button.
