Meet Blackheart Orchestra, the Mancunian proggers with a twist
Mancunian multi-instrumental duo come into bloom
“The songs tend to write themselves and this happens a lot in my kitchen. I guess cooking doesn’t happen there so something else has to!” chuckles The Blackheart Orchestra vocalist Chrissy Mostyn in a charming Mancunian accent.
Previously known simply as Blackheart, The Blackheart Orchestra are a soft acoustic and synth prog duo, formed by avid instrument collectors Rick Pilkington and Mostyn.
“When we met, I suggested to Chrissy that we do a couple of gigs together, just for fun. Before we knew it, a couple of gigs turned into 140 gigs in our first year!” says Pilkington.
