Susan – Blackmore’s Night has a very distinctive sound, mixing medieval music with a modern sound. How would you describe your music to someone who’s never heard it before?

Candice – I like to call it Fantasy Castle Music. Ritchie calls it Renn and Roll. It’s really some rock, some folk, some Renaissance, some tavern songs, some ballads and some instrumentals. The great thing about this music is we don’t fit into a neatly packed box with categories stamped on them. It’s incredibly freeing to play anything you want to, anyway you want to play it. The bad thing is, people are so used to boxes that sometimes you fall through the cracks because you can’t be catagorized.
