Blackmore's Night is proud to announce the addition of Gypsy Rose to our group of Minstrels. Before joining the band, Gypsy Rose was travelling the countryside with a band of rogue fiddlers. When she first heard Blackmore's Night she immediately became enchanted with their mystic melodies and found herself unable to play anything but Ghost of a Rose! Though they tolerated this behaviour for a time, the wild-hearted gypsies soon grew tired of the soothing, sweet melody and cast her off the vardo. Aimlessly wandering the valleys and hills, Gypsy Rose searched for the magical minstrels who had captured her bow. A chance meeting with Master Blackmore and Lady Candice led to the only true remedy for her problem: a strict daily regimen of Cartouche, Ariel, and very strong ale!
Special gift for the fans
Special gift for the fans - to celebrate the birthday of our favourite minstrel on April 14. Blackmore's Night will be giving the fans a free gift - for anyone who orders any of the Blackmore's Night shirts between April 1 and April 14. We all share in the celebration of the day!

Filming Scheduled for New York and North Carolina Spring 2008.
New York, NY—(January 17, 2008) Multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Candice Night of the Renaissance-flavoured Blackmore's Night will appear in the supernatural thriller House Of Eternity, along with Queensryche vocalist Geoff Tate, a major motion picture set for release in the fourth quarter of 2008 from Fires At Midnight Films. The movie will feature new music by Candice Night and Blackmore's Night. Additional artists TBA.
Night's character is Emily Grayson, the wife of the film's antagonist whose life becomes embroiled in the post-witch hunt paranoia of the 1700's.
“House Of Eternity contains something for everyone,” says Candice, “memorable characters struggling against powers far greater than they, desperate, heart-pounding action, and innovative approaches to classic horror; even humour and a forlorn love. Plus, there’s a villain who will become timeless.”
Candice, currently in the studio with legendary guitarist
Ritchie Blackmore are recording the next Blackmore’s Night album,
due this summer.
Blackmore's Night Paris
Moon is Number 1; for November and Number 1
for December 2007, in the top
100 New Age Reporter Radio charts in USA. And Winter
Carols is number 3 for December 2007! Congratulations
Candice and Ritchie!

Arise Sir Ritchie!
This makes it 4 years in a row for our Ritchie at GodofGuitar.com.
Yes, following the internal investigations it was found that over the last weekend of voting there was an automated multiple voting program being used by a single person for Derek Trucks, as pointed out by many of our readers on this website. We have now taken these votes out and following a recount we can confirm that Ritchie Blackmore has indeed won the poll for the 4th year running.
The following are comments left by voters when choosing
Ritchie as their favourite guitarist. We've not included them all as it
is very repetitive; however here are around 500 of them in alphabetic
order. You may recognise yours. The spellings are by the voters! Our favourite
fan comment (from jcs4jbem) has Ritchie being knighted! Now there's an
idea. In the meantime please vote for Ritchie to be inducted into the
hall of fame here.
Candice Night live interview online

If you like the interview, please send a thank you message to Paul Franks at: email@example.com as this will encourage him to support the band further. Thank You!
