Band Bio

Alchemy brings together three dynamic players, steeped in traditional English Country Dance and Contra Dance music:

  • Eric Martin on viola and violin,
  • Rachel Bell on accordion,
  • Karen Axelrod on piano.

They have performed individually across the United States, Canada, and Europe. As a trio, their improvisatory style brings a contemporary and innovative feel to both traditional and newly composed tunes and songs. From driving Scottish Reels to haunting French Mazurkas and everything in between, Alchemy delights the listener with heartfelt performances with a touch of whimsy.
