A new brand of avant-garde folk music will be filling the Angles Theatre in Wisbech when a multi-instrumentalist duo take to the stage at the weekend.

Blackheart will be bringing their unique sound to the theatre on Saturday.

Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington formed Blackheart in Manchester during 2007.

Since then they have recorded three successful albums and toured the UK, Ireland, Germany, the Netherlands and two headline tours of Australia and New Zealand.

Four years ago their song ‘Unlike Water’ was used on the Moben Kitchens TV commercial.

Their music and unique sound shun categorisation, combining acoustic instruments and the voice of Chrissy Mostyn with ancient synthesisers, effects, atmospherics and electronica to create a new brand of avant-garde ethereal folk.

Their highly personal, haunting music is flavoured with piercing observations and penetrating lyrics.

Blackheart’s sonically and emotionally uninhibited third album ‘Songs From A Satellite’ was awarded second place Album Of The Year in the US Indie Music Awards in 2013.

Tickets for the concert cost £11, with concessions at £9.

The theatre will be hosting An Evening with Marlene Dietrich on September 5.

The musical theatre piece, written and performed by Annette Mutton, is about the life and career of an icon who dominated the world stage from 1930-1974.

Tickets cost £11 with concessions of £9.
