Testimonials

Geraldine Walsh - Mossley Hill Athletics Club - 17/06/2017

‘Eden and Bridie. Thank you so much for last night, the lads are amazing musicians and your voices and presence complement their music beautifully. It all adds up to a very melodious sound and a great vibe.’

Kirsten Nesbitt - Dulcimer bar - Chorlton 31/03/2017 

"The Alchemists played  at a recent family birthday party, they were fantastic. The diversity of set was great for the guests, we were all thoroughly entertained and there was plenty to dance to. We were able to go through the set before the event and ask for special requests which was a bonus. I especially liked how cohesive the band were - there is a vibrant energy shared amongst them all which shines through in their performance. I would highly recommend then and will definitely be using them again!"
