AWARD-WINNING TRIO TO RAISE ROOF IN STROUD

MIXING eclectic classical and pop songs with rich harmony vocals, harmony singers Blake are poised to perform at Stroud's Subscription Rooms on Sunday at 8pm.

BRIT award-winning trio Blake combine the vocal grandeur of The Three Tenors with the infectious harmonies of The Bee Gees and the comedy of the Rat Pack.

Fresh from major tours in Asia, America and Europe, the boys have got hilarious stories to tell and new songs to share, including exclusive numbers from their brand new album Start Over.

In a visual feast featuring spectacular video projections, the boys combine classical, pop, rock and musicals in a two hour show that amazes with its variety and class.

With over a million albums sold, and having performed on nearly 150 TV shows around the world, Blake continue to build their reputation as one of the most eclectic and exciting pop-harmony groups in the world.

Blake launched their first album in 2007 which went straight to number One in the UK Classical Album Chart and into the Top Twenty Pop Chart. In 2008 it received the prestigious Brit Award for Album of the Year, a huge honour for a group still less than a year old.

Their upbeat version of Swing Low was chosen as the official anthem of England Rugby for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. They've performed twice for the Queen at the Albert Hall at the Festival of Remembrance, and Dame Shirley Bassey invited them to play at her one million dollar 70th birthday party.

Their Stroud performance sees support from classical soprano Natalie Coyle. Tickets are £21 (£18.50 concs) and are available from 01453 760900.
