Alison Chabloz has become a controversial figure particularly after her Quenelle salute outside Edinburgh Castle during last year’s Edinburgh Fringe. A talented musician with outspoken views on many subjects including the Holocaust and freedom of speech, she recently received a standing ovation at the Grosvenor Hotel for her performance at The London Forum.
Originally from Manchester in the UK, Alison spent over 20 years living in Switzerland where she performed and was also a classroom music teacher, choir conductor and editor of a local newpaper, GstaadLife. She speaks fluent French and is also club record holder for freediving (apnea).
After deciding to return to her British roots in 2010, Alison has become a fierce anti-Zionist campaigner for freedom of expression and, in particular, Holocaust revisionism. Her songs of the Shoah have provoked a sharp contrast of reactions, ranging from cries of ‘absolute genius’ to repeated calls from certain quarters to have Alison arrested.
Songs including ‘Tell Me More Lies’ with lyrics by British-Swiss publisher, Gerard Menuhin, are about to be released on a new CD.
