Music // Coming up // The Blackheart Orchestra
31 August

The Blackheart Orchestra

Unfortunately we are having to cancel this gig, but they are playing at the Acorn in Penzance on Thursday 30th - see here fore more details and to book tickets:

"A great band" - BBC Radio 2

"An ethereal musical landscape, an enchanting masterpiece" - Purple Revolver (UK)

Described by Rock Society magazine as “One of the most extraordinary female voices singing anywhere”, and by Genesis Legend Steve Hackett as “Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”, award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington are The Blackheart Orchestra.

After 10 years of concert touring across the world, four acclaimed albums, appearances on Good Morning TV, Radio 2 and awards ranging from Best British Duo to 4th Best New Band of 2018 in PROG magazine’s recent readers’ poll and now nominated for the prestigious Limelight Award in the 2018 Progressive Music Awards the unique Blackheart Orchestra have become one of the must-see bands of 2018. 

The pioneering duo blend musical styles seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral. Often mistaken for an 8-piece band on first listen, their stage has been described as a ‘musical spaceship’ or ‘laboratory’ where they are to be found continuously changing from electric and acoustic guitars, bowed guitar, piano, organ, bass and electronic percussion to vintage synthesisers, omnichord and melodica.

Tickets: £13 adult / £11 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
