Alison’s vocal style has been influenced by a range of different musical genres, and her extensive career has spanned from London’s West End and world tours, to television and jazz clubs, even performing for the Queen and Princess Diana.  John is an accomplished pianist and musical director, with over twenty years’ experience playing for a range of artists and musical genres, including Dame Shirley Bassey and Brian May.


The gig at The Golden Bell this week will include some retro, funky covers and classics – the perfect accompaniment to a Sunday afternoon in the pub’s garden.
