Must-see band, the Blackheart Orchestra comes to Ropery Hall
After 10 years of concert touring across the world, radio and TV appearances and awards, the unique Blackheart Orchestra have become one of the must-see bands of 2019.
The pioneering duo, made up of Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington, will be appearing at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall on Friday, March 15.
This pioneering duo blend musical styles seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.
“Their multi-instrumental sonic landscapes have always been too unpredictable for pop, too adventurous for the mainstream and too plain weird for folk. Fusing acoustic fragility and electronica, The Blackheart Orchestra bring together stringed instruments with 80s synthesisers and classical influences,” she went on. “One moment their sound is minimal and molecular, the next it is a mountain-like wall of sound with vast symphonic climaxes.”
Acclaimed albums and mesmerising live shows have won them obsessive worldwide fans, plaudits from musical giants and placements on TV commercials and films. Last year included being voted #4 Best New Band of 2018 in PROG magazine’s readers’ poll, a nomination for The Limelight Award in the 2018 Progressive Music Awards and performances at the UK’s most prestigious festivals and auditoriums including Birmingham Symphony Hall and The London Palladium.
This year will see the much anticipated release of their second album ‘Mesmeranto’while their music and mesmerising live shows continue to receive rapturous reviews and the band continue to print their unique mark on the music scene.
