A heartfelt tribute and passionate look at the pioneering female vocalists and lyricists that launched the brand of music known as ‘the blues’ which in turn became Jazz. The songs these uncrowned queens of gospel, blues and jazz performed were outspoken, racy and very on the edge.

Ali's aim is to resurrect the long forgotten divas - their songs, their lives and the strong messages they preached. If ever we needed to be reminded of the strong trailblazing women from musical history it is now! Come along and discover how the messages in this old music still hold true today!

Ali Affleck and her (mixed) band the Copper Cats have received excellent reviews and sold out shows on both sides of the Atlantic. We're delighted to have this show at the Audacious Women Festival in partnership with the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
