Ali Affleck's Bedlam Swing
Complimenting the magnificent menu and wonderful wine list is the sublime voice of Ali Affleck and her brilliant band, Bedlam Swing.
Blessed with what the LA Times called 'the spirit of Bessie Smith in the 21st Century,' this award-winning vocalist dives deep into the Great American Songbook as she effortlessly blurs the boundaries between Billie Holiday, Julie London and Peggy Lee.
Expect an uplifting performance of instrumentals and vocal numbers by some of the country's most swinging artists.

“No one else in Scotland can sing this material so authentically and so swingingly” BBC Sounds
‘Music from another time and place which puts smiles on the faces of the here and now.’ The Herald
“Ali Affleck is not a household name yet- but I think she soon will be” […] “Ali sings with the same kind of élan and swing that is very evident in the recordings of a certain Billie Holiday. Now this is high praise indeed but I can assure you that it is entirely accurate. ”
