With their critically acclaimed album Mesmeranto entering the official rock charts at number 18, and being voted number 4 in Top 10 Albums of the year by New York’s Big Takeover Magazine, award-winning electronic progfolk pioneers The Blackheart Orchestra take their music to a new, unexplored dimension. Described as “A mesmerising powerhouse” “An avant-garde musical utopia” and “One of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today” vocalist Chrissy Mostyn and multi-instrumentalist Rick Pilkington combine their classical influences with vintage synthesisers and ultra- contemporary electronica to create music that takes over the senses.

Expect sublime harmonies, beautiful 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, a Limelight Progressive  Music Award Nomination and being voted in the UK’s Top 4 Best New Bands, plus performances at the London Palladium and Royal Albert Hall, The Blackheart Orchestra are two voices and thirteen instruments that create a unique musical experience.
