Lady Kelly De Winter (Kelly Morris) - French horn, harmony vocals (2012–Present)

lady kellyKelly was just a wee babe when she first found herself singing tunes – and it wasn’t long after that she discovered what joy music could truly bring those around her. Classically trained in voice, piano, French Horn, and various other musical instruments, she was clearly drawn to perform - and soon found herself a graduate of the Musical Theatre program at Shenandoah University. Thus far, her professional career has allowed her to perform on stages across the United States, but no indoor theatre ever gave her the same magical feeling as portraying Queen Elizabeth I at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. It was during this time that she truly discovered “All the Fun of the Fayre". She is thrilled to be joining Blackmore’s Night playing French Horn and singing harmony vocals. Lady Kelly says she owes a debt of gratitude to her Renaissance family for introducing her to such a wonderful group.

 kellyFor those who do not know, I am about to move to Florida with my husband, to allow us both to get back to our pursuits of professional acting careers. (Disney World - here we come!) We are very excited about the fresh start for the two of us, but it does mean that, at least for now, I will not be able to continue with Blackmore's Night. They have been professional and kind about my decision and made it clear that if I settle in Florida and discover I am still able to work my schedule around the tours, I am welcome to come back! In the meantime, I am trying to help them find another amazing harmony vocalist and wishing the band members nothing but the best. It has been truly an honor to perform with them all! I have loved meeting so many fans around the world and right here at home - and I do hope we see each other again sometime soon. :)

"So here's to you, all our friends, surely we will meet again..."
