Hailed as “Bessie Smith of the 21st Century*” we are dying to introduce you to Ali Affleck and the Gin Mill Genies.

The award winning vocalist and percussionist, works her dual heritage of New Orleanian vibrancy and Scottish cheekiness to present a riot of uplifting hot roots jazz and smouldering bawdy blues!

Held together with sprinklings of Creole and French for a solidly seasoned New Orleans vibe. Not only a vocal powerhouse and musical storyteller, she is also a historian and raconteur.Unsurprising, being the Great Great Niece of Dame Nellie Melba!

Her exceptional stagecraft and facts about the music she presents have secured her regular work with the BBC , STV and at worldwide festivals from the French quarter fest to Ascona jazz festival .

Expect roots jazz and blues at it’s best!

"OUTSTANDING - A real masterclass in grassroots Jazz. Her voice was deep and smooth and I wanted to just wrap myself up in it. It was a real privilege to witness a singer that channels Billie Holiday with so much charm and poise." - Edinburgh 49

Infinitely danceable and uplifting, Ali and the Gin Mill Genies offer the perfect tonic this Autumn - a fresh voice in London and Ali’s first time at Toulouse Lautrec.


And the Genies are:

Martin Wheatley - banjo / guitar
Martin Litton - Piano
David Horniblow - reeds
Ben Hazelton - bass
