About Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival: A Night in New Orleans

Alison Affleck's Copper Cats with special guests, from New Orleans, Chloe Feoranzo and Haruka Kikuchi. Plus all-girl New Orleans sensations: The Shake Em Up Jazz Band

THIS IS A RIOT!

Edinburgh-based American singer Ali Affleck and the acclaimed Copper Cats band transport you to the prohibition era, delivering good time, swinging vintage jazz, with Alison’s deep love and knowledge of early jazz vocals to the fore in New Orleans classics and songs by Bessie Smith, Mildred Bailey, Louis Armstrong and Ma Rainey.

For one night, the Copper Cats feature New Orleans clarinettist Chloe Feoranzo and trombone payer Haruka Kikuchi. The all-girl band that’s taking New Orleans by storm, Shake Em Up Jazz Band, play in the classic traditional style in all the buzzing places in the French Quartet, and here they are in Scotland for the first time. A double dose of New Orleans girl power. “Music from another time and place, which puts smiles on the faces of the here and now” (The Herald).

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival: A Night in New Orleans are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
