I was wondering if anyone has heard of or listen to Blackmore's Night? They're music is a mixture of rock/folk/medieval style music :) Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple) and his wife Candice Night are the main two musicians in the band, but they have 'Minstrels', as they are known, whom provide drums, guitars and backing vocal :)

Anyway, I was just wondering...hehe :D

Here's a video of theirs 'Way to Mandlay'

I've had a love for Blackmore's Night since 2006 :D Wasn't it you who introduced me to them?

I'm seeing them in concert on June 3rd in Stockholm :D

Yeah they have a new album coming out in June called Secret Voyage :D

I'm not sure. I don't really have any medieval/renaissance style clothes or costumes. I wish I did though :confused:

They usually reserve the front rows for the fans who dress up but the theater they're playing has assigned seats so I won't lose my seat regardless of whether I dress up or not (I have 5th row center).

I would buy renaissance clothes in a heartbeat if only I had the money. I've been broke for months. The only way I could afford this concert was to beg the parental unit to give it to me for my birthday, haha.

I'll definitely bring the camera. I just hope you're allowed to take photos.

Always been a fan of Ritchie ever since Deep Purple, and don't mind Blackmoore's Night. Ritchie's playing is great, and Candice's vocals are really good.
I think the lyrical content of many of their songs seem a bit shallow at times which prevents me from buying their albums.
I did buy
Village Lanterne a number of years ago as it was pretty good overall. They do a wonderful live cover of Joan Baez's Diamonds and Rust.
