Billie Holiday – Alison Affleck’s Tribute In Song
Check out the latest Festival programme here!
The singer pays an imaginative tribute to one of her idols. Billie Holiday was unlike any other vocal artist in American popular music. She blazed a heroic path through abusive relationships, prison, and heroin addiction to become the pre-eminent jazz singer of her day. Classic songs with soulful vocals, and always with a characteristic catch. Alison focuses on the life-affirming, feel-good, upbeat times of Holiday’s life, and sings Holiday’s great tunes with élan.
