An intimate evening with an 'utterly magical' band

Enjoy an intimate evening with Blackheart when they play a concert at Clayhidon Parish Hall on Friday 30 October as part of their ‘Beautifully Acoustic’ nationwide tour. 

Blackheart are multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington. Their unique music has been described as “a heavenly fusion of acoustic folk, intelligent pop and classical music”, “utterly magical” by the BBC’s John Gilmore and “one of the best things to come out of England in recent years” by Fatea Music Magazine.

After  three successful albums and  over 600 concerts from Amsterdam, Berlin and Sydney to London, Belfast and Glastonbury, and radio play in nearly every country in the world, Blackheart’s music is impossible to categorise.

They combine acoustic instruments and  the voice of Chrissy Mostyn with piano, omnichord, electric percussion, electric mandola, bowed guitar and vintage synthesisers to create a new and very unique vision of contemporary folk music. Their show features multi-instrumental playing and continuous changing of moods and combinations of instruments. A reviewer recently said “Blackheart are a miniature orchestra - two people who sound like 22".

Their highly personal, haunting music led Australia’s Western Star to say “Blackheart take their audiences from heartbreaking to uplifting in a single song”. Radio 2’s Aled  Jones simply called them “a great band”. Genesis legend Steve Hackett described their music “Beautiful, powerful and inspiring.”
