About Young Lovers
‘Young Lovers!’ are a North West based Vintage Piano/Vocal duo of the golden age. We specialise in vintage golden age era music for weddings, functions and events.
We are made up of real life couple theatre performer Emily Chesterton and Musical Director George Francis. Our love of the the golden age inspired us to put together a classy duo specialising in the music from the 20s to the 60s. Our favourites being Gershwin, Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, plus many more.
We work with our clients to deliver to their needs, whether it be learning new songs at their request, tailoring our setlist to the style of the wedding or even wearing a particular outfit, whatever it is, we’ll do it for you. We bring all our own equipment, but are very happy to work with pianos already at venues, and have very competitive prices.
