Alison Affleck and Vieux Carre

Scotland's finest purveyors of energetic hot Vintage Swing jazz stay true to the whimsical, evocative and slightly cheeky attitude of the late 1920s Jazz Age (think Tin Pan Alley with a hint of good old Vaudeville)
when Dixieland and Hot Jazz were in very much in vogue.
The band is fronted by Scottish Jazz Awards 2013 Vocalist of the Year Ali Affleck, who has the vocal styling of a young Billie Holliday, June Christy and others from the halcyon days of the 20s, 30s and 40s when style and elegance mattered as much as the music.
Pulsatingly rhythmic and full of drive, energy and passion, Ali Affleck and Vieux Carré offer up an energetic and lively floor-filling performance of old school swing and blues.
