Formed in 1997 by Candice Night and Ritchie Blackmore, the two began working together first in Ritchie’s previous group Rainbow, when Candice co-wrote a number of songs, most notably “Ariel” and “Black Masquerade” for Rainbow’s 1996 album, STRANGER IN US ALL. DANCER AND THE MOON is the band’s 8th original studio album, with each disc topping the European and American Billboard’s New Age charts. When Blackmore’s Night began it’s journey, skeptics had their reservations that finding an audience would be impossible. Someone once wrote that “love conquers all” and Blackmore’s Night’s love for the music has found an audience that loves the magic this enduring couple have been conjuring up in an almost 20-year love affair. Open your ears and your hearts, there’s plenty of passion to go around.
