Alex was truly a highlight of the event. He showed up on time, was polite, courteous, 100% professional, incredibly talented, and went above and beyond to learn new songs specifically for us that would hold special meaning for the guests of honor. I couldn't imagine any musician having brought more to the event than Alex did. And our guests haven't stopped talking about how great he was.
Alexander Mitchell is a talented and versatile musician, a terrific person, and a pleasure to work with. Alex provided me with exactly the performance that I requested, and made my event outstanding. My guests haven't stopped complimenting Alex's performance (or my good taste in booking him). I hope I have an occasion to book Alex again in the future. I most certainly encourage anyone to have him entertain at their event. They will be very glad they did.
Alexander Mitchell and Friends were a huge success with our audience. Over a year later everybody keeps asking us where they can buy the CD Chameleon and when they are coming back to Saranac to perform live again. It's unanimous — you've got to come back soon!!

Celtic Festival. His talent and enthusiasm made for a wonderful show. He truly is a master fiddler. The audience enjoyed it and so did I! I look forward
to hearing him again."

"Alexander's performance matched our outdoor setting perfectly and exceeded our already high expectations. What we remember most about our
wedding was how special and wonderful the music was, both during our ceremony and during the reception. He made the experience unique and memorable for both our guests and ourselves. Many of our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed his performance. On top of all that, he was just a kind and nice person to work with. We feel fortunate to have found him."

Alex Mitchell is one of those rare musicians who has a quick, intuitive sense of both event and audience. Whether performing as a featured soloist or as part of a group, he incorporates a keen sense of surroundings and audience preferences into a musical program that is consistently amazing and delightful. It is no surprise then that he enjoys such a diverse and loyal following!

We were incredibly fortunate that a family friend introduced us to the music of Alexander Mitchell a few months before our wedding. Before popping in
Alex’s CD, the music for our wedding ceremony was a big question mark for us
(two organic farmers with parents from Russia, Chile and Buffalo NY). Alex’s
versatile style and ability to weave together diverse sounds so seamlessly
made Alex the ideal musician for our wedding, which brought together family and friends from so many places. We considered it a long—shot that Alex would play at our wedding, but e-mailed him anyway.
From start to finish, Alex was a complete professional, adapting to our particular needs, simplifying logistics, arriving early, and bringing the fullest energy and music imaginable to the most important day of our lives. Without a doubt, Alex’s amazing music was the most effortless part of our wedding. Alex is a rare find indeed!

"Alex made my Saint Patrick's day party come alive. He was punctual, professional and maintained an excellent rapport with my guests. One recently told me that she purchased a CD at the party and gave it to her mom, who plays it almost daily. Alex's style is wide ranging and accomplished!!!!"
