This is the official website for Witchkraft, a classic rock covers/tribute band from the North East of England playing songs by Deep Purple, Rainbow, Free, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and more, but with a special emphasis on the music of Ritchie Blackmore with the majority of the set being songs by Deep Purple and Rainbow.

WITCHKRAFT - NOW A POWERHOUSE OF ROCK! - some of the most talented, exciting, dynamic musicians Riffs has seen or heard and the band truly has come of age. Witchkraft just has to have sold its soul to the Devil in return for the stunning powerhouse it has become. They started off at the level that most bands finish - and then just got better. IF YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW WITCHKRAFT - THINK AGAIN!
