Combining songs from their upcoming EP of the same name with uplifting and introspective music chosen by the group’s members, Leeds’ premier a cappella group promise a dazzling, feel-good showcase of the music that’s got us all through the past few years of life indoors. Featuring hits by The Bee Gees, Scissor Sisters and Billie Eilish, The Songsmiths are sure to get you dancing in your seats!

Absoloutely brilliant show, very talented performers indeed and loved the humour that peppered the commentary between the shows - I was inbetween work appointments and was so glad I squeezed this show in, still smilling about it now and oh the outfits were well co-ordinated even down to gold shoelaces!

Wow! This a Capella group performance was fantastic - several songs brought me to tears! Every single singer was very strong and their arrangements of familiar tunes were excellent. I e ould definitely recommend, even if you aren’t a huge a Capella fan as it was so entertaining

Absolutely loved this show. Had just watched a comedian telling me how everyone from Leeds is bloody loud! Why not, when Leeds Uni can sing like this! Songsmiths ... take a bow. Beautiful. Maybe the best thing I saw this week.

I've seen a lot of shit a cappella this year. It's nice to see a proper group without a fucking gimmick or a contrived unoriginal storyline... Excellent energy and well-crafted arrangements make for a thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile time.

What a great show from start to finish. Great performances all round . They all work so well together for some truly emotional songs. Great energy and have picked up some beat boxing tricks . A must see.

What a brilliant set - fantastic blending and genuine connectivity amongst the singers made it even more uplifting. Tears in my eyes and hairs standing on end when they sang Bridge over Troubled Water. So many great songs and I will be buying the EP when it is released. A must see!

Unbelievable show, great value for money!! 13 young adults who gel together to put a range of enjoyable songs for the audience . Great talent shown, a must see! Big shout out to the girl who sung Everybody wants to rule the world! However, every song is so prepared and brilliant to hear. Well done Songsmiths and a show not to be missed.

A lovely show. Very well sung with some really strong voices. Not sure they needed the mics and it would have been good to hear one song like this. Great show and worth the money.
