5/5

The Medieval Princes are the real deal. With their wonderful authentic instruments and virtuoso playing, they transported us back to the sumptuous banquet of a medieval Princely Court. Their performance was way beyond expectations, not only providing beautiful background music to our feast but also wonderful singing harmonies. They also taught us a wonderful group dance and coordinated perfectly with the nights speeches, poetry and games. I highly recommend these three talented singing musicians.
