Blackmore's NightNot exactly new music when reading up! LOL
But just thought what a really good band! - Blackmore's Night - though they have been around for last 10 years!
*led a sheltered life for some years - what can I say! Ha ha)
Many EP friends may of heard of them cos it's Ritchie Blackmore stuff - though not the heavier rock style. Ritchie Blackmore with his lady formed this folk/rock band - Just downloaded album called The Village Lanterne. Excellent stuff. So cool!
"Her" voice is really melodious and wistful. The one I really, really like - and the song that GOT my attention in first place - is "Just call my name" - loving the beat and rhythm of this one.
Just Call my Name (video lyrics only)
Once in a Million Years
Last two are slower and more gentle than Just Call my Name but still thought they were ..... enchanting!
(some vids quite long so you may get bored before end! :P
Found bit of info: Legendary Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore (b. April 14, 1945, Weston-super-Mare, England) shifted his musical focus away from hard rock in the late 1990s and started concentrating on his love of Renaissance-era music. He formedBlackmore's Night with his fiancee, vocalist/lyricist Candice Night (b. May 8, 1971, Hauppauge, Long Island, NY), and recruited other musicians from around the world to combine elements of world music, Renaissance, new age, folk, and rock & roll. Blackmore didn't exactly retire his Fender Stratocaster, but he plays acoustic guitar almost exclusively in Blackmore's Night. His acoustic guitar melodies and Night's clear, ethereal voice blend with a host of instruments such as mandolins, keyboards, pennywhistles, violins, tambourines, military drums, and hurdy-gurdies. Blackmore once described the band's sound as "Mike Oldfield meets Enya.
Anyhow, as you can tell!!! Quite enthusiastic about my new find!!
Thought I'd share!!!! :D
