Sarah and her band joined us for New Years Eve and they were absolutely amazing, I couldn't recommend them enough. Incredibly talented and professional. They set up in plenty of time, performed exactly what they promised, and made the evening so special with their energy. The whole experience was stress free and we felt we were in very safe hands! Thank you so much! Looking forward to our next event together!

St. Patrick’s night, and Flash Harry in our guise as Fleigh O’Hara had been invited to play a set of Irish tunes and songs at The Kingsdown Vaults in Bristol. It is our custom to invite a few guest musicians to join us for the evening and on this occasion we had Simon Edwards (squeezebox), Lisa-Marie Walters (vocalist extraordinaire) and Sarah Mitchell (fiddle & singer). We expected each of them to join in on a few numbers in the set having sent set lists and some recordings prior to the gig. Imagine our surprise to find that Sarah had learned the whole set including harmony parts and some of the trickiest fiddle tunes. She played and sang it all! That evening she both blended in beautifully with the band and took her moments to step forward and show what an accomplished musician she is. Aside from her musical contributions to the show, her confidence and obvious enjoyment on stage gave an added lift to an already brilliant and memorable evening. If you are looking for an accomplished musician and a fine performer, Sarah Mitchell fits the bill!
