It’s been some week for the legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Candice Night.

The pair has been fronting the renaissance-flavored folk-rock stylings of Blackmore’s Night for over 10 years and just received word that their all-new studio CD, Secret Voyage (SPV), has remained #1 on the Billboard New Age chart for the fourth straight week.



“With Blackmore’s Night,” says Blackmore, “we have the creative freedom to play any style of music we want. We can play folk, rock, ballads, instrumentals or tavern songs. I couldn’t do that before.”



The ambiance on Secret Voyage is exacted with stunning clarity. Secret Voyage can be digested on many levels. Blackmore solos brilliantly throughout on a number of stringed instruments, including acoustic and electric guitars, mandolins and mandolas. Candice’s voice is ethereal, and she plays a variety of ancient instruments on madrigals, shanties and folk from France, Germany, Russia and England. (The new album also contains an Elvis cover and a Rainbow cover.)



Night also appears in the feature film "Pray For Light," slated for early 2009 release.
