Festival picks for vintage lovers image

They ooze the glamour, style and sophistication of a musical time gone by - meet our vintage style acts of 2015.

Flapper dresses and dickie bows at the ready – Bratislava Hot Serenaders will transport you back to the 1920s and 30s with their extraordinary authenticity and pizazz. This 19 piece, hot jazz group boast immaculate period costume, a single microphone, and a non-stop parade of tightly arranged pop tunes from the period.

She's no stranger to Edinburgh after last year's hit at the Festival so expect another brilliant run from Davina and the Vagabonds. The rocking blues singer is returning for a four gig stay with her high energy band that will keep you boogieing all night long.

Expect some incredible costumes from Gabby Young and The Other Animals. This magical musical fairground band is influenced by global folk, Balkan party music and jazz and swing.

We’ve also got the incredible Ali Affleck and the Copper Cats. Ali's an award winning jazz singer and with her group the Copper Cats will bring a mix of Tin Pan Alley, the Great American Songbook standards, and traditional New Orleans Blues as sung by Bessie Smith, Mildred Bailey, Louis Armstrong and Ma Rainey to the Festival.
