Blackmore’s Night is an English Renaissance-inspired medieval folk rock band led by UK guitarist Ritchie Blackmore(electric andacoustic guitars) and Candice Night (lyricist and lead vocals).

The origins of the band lie in 1990 when Candice was working at a local New York rock music radio station, and as part of herworkfirst encountered Ritchie (now ex-Deep Purple/Rainbow guitarist), then with Deep Purple, at a soccer game hewas playingin. The two became romantically entwined and discovered that they shared a passionate interest in theRenaissance.

After leaving Deep Purple in 1993 and recording an album as Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow called Stranger in Us All in1995, onwhich Candice contributed backing vocals, Ritchie became interested in the idea of bringing Renaissance music to acontemporaryaudience. The effervescent personality of Candice and her singing talent made her the natural choice as“frontman”. In 1997 thepair were ready to launch the band, the name being a pun of their own names, and which wouldconsist of themselves plus sessionmusicians.

Debut album Shadow of the Moon was an instant success, most notably in Europe. In subsequent albums, particularlyFiresat Midnight, there was an increased incorporation of rock guitar into the music, whilst maintaining a folk rockdirection. Over time,Candice has increasingly participated instrumentally as well as singing the vocals, and is competent in awide variety of Renaissanceinstruments. « hide
