Inspirational electronic folk pioneers The Blackheart Orchestra take folk to a new unexplored dimension. Described as “a mesmerizing powerhouse” (Xune Magazine) , “an avant-garde musical utopia” (No Depression) and “one of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today” (Rock Society Magazine), vocalist Chrissy Mostyn along with multi-instrumentalist Rick Pilkington combine their classical influences with vintage synths and ultra contemporary electronica to create music that takes over the senses.
As emotionally charged as it is musically accomplished, expect sublime harmonies, virtuoso guitar, piano and synthesiser playing and songwriting and arrangements that take the audience ”from heartbreaking to uplifting in a single song”. With awards including Best British Duo, Limelight Progressive Music Award Nomination and being voted in the UK’s Top 4 Best New Bands, The Blackheart Orchestra are two voices and thirteen instruments that create a unique musical experience that is truly ground-breaking.
