A Night in New Orleans: Ali Affleck & Shake Em Up Jazz Band - Assembly Festival - Edinburgh

It’s a thrill to re-present Ali Affleck’s effervescent New Orleans show, where she features her favourite musicians from Scotland and the crescent city in a band that brings a little bit of Caledonia into the musical gumbo that is New Orleans Jazz. The singer has been spending a lot of time in Louisiana and with guests, Molly Reeves and Julie Schexnayder, she’s put together an exciting programme of rootsy jazz, gospel and blues, with some creole songs for extra spice. Shake Em Up are the all female band from New Orleans that highlight how female musicians are taking the city by storm. They play in all the top clubs in the French Quarter, playing in the classic traditional style. An exceptional double bill.WHEN: Tue 16 July - 18:00WHERE: George Square SpiegeltentTickets on sale now via https://tinyurl.com/EJBF19NewOrleans or or in person/phone at The Hub - Edinburgh's Festival Centre (0131 473 2000)
