The Blackheart Orchestra are multi-award winning, multi-instrumentalists

Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Plkington. They comprise a two person ‘orchestra’

playing up to 13 instruments in their unique live show. From their onstage

featuring a multitude of sounds and atmospheres from acoustic and electric

guitars, bass and bowed guitar to piano, organ, vintage synthesisers,

omnichord, melodica and electric percussion.

They have been described as a modern day Pink Floyd with influences from

as far afield as Kate Bush, Portishead and Cocteau Twins to modern

composers Steve Reich and Philip Glass. They combine their folk and rock

roots with electronica and classical with Genesis founder Steve Hackett

calling their music “Powerful and inspiring”.
