The sonic landscapes of Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington defy classification. A gig like nothing you’ve ever experienced.
The Blackheart Orchestra is one of the must-see bands of 2019, described by the Daily Express as “Ethereal”, BBC Radio 2 as “A great band” and by Genesis legend Steve Hackett as “Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”. Its members are award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington. Their songs defy classification. Their sonic landscapes sound as though far more than two musicians are at work and half the thrill of their performances is watching them move from electric and acoustic guitars, bowed guitar, piano, organ, bass and electronic percussion to vintage synthesisers, omnichord and melodica in a complex choreographed weave of musical moods and textures. This will be a gig like nothing you’ve ever experienced.
