The Blackheart Orchestra Return To Haughley
Following their magical and unforgettable concert last year, we are delighted to report that The Blackheart Orchestra have agreed to perform for us again in Haughley as a part of their national tour.
The Blackheart Orchestra is actually a duo, Rick Pilkington and Chrissy Mostyn. They write all their own songs and their music is a combination of modern acoustic music served with a pinch of electronica and classical. They are often likened to a miniature orchestra as, even though there are only two of them, on stage they play a number of instruments, all totally live.
One of the must-see bands of 2019, this pioneering duo blend musical styles, seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral. Chrissy Mostyn’s haunting vocals and the Mike Oldfield-like multi-instrumental playing of Rick Pilkington are a delight. Their critically acclaimed albums and mesmerising live shows have won them obsessive worldwide fans, plaudits from musical giants and placements on TV commercials and films.

The concert takes place in St Mary’s Church, Haughley, on Saturday 24 August; doors open at 7.15pm and the concert starts at 7.45pm. Bar available.
Tickets are £10 and can be purchased from Haughley Post Office or via: www.ticketsource.co.uk/st-marys-haughley.
