Deep Purple guitarist Blackmore’s Night to Penn’s Peak

From 1975-84, Blackmore fronted the neoclassic rock band Rainbow, which released seven albums, two of which hit the Top 30. It briefly reunited 2015-17.

Blackmore returned to Deep Purple for 1984’s platinum disc “Perfect Strangers,” which included the hit title track and Top 10 Rock hit “Knocking at Your Back Door.” Blackmore stayed through 1993’s “The Battle Rages On…,” the last disc of the group’s second incarnation.

But for the past 20 years, Blackmore’s muse has been Renaissance music. With Candace Night, he has released 10 studio albums, a live disc and three compilations. Its latest disc is 2015’s “All Our Yesterdays.”

Blackmore’s Night has played Stroudsburg’s Sherman Theatre several times, most recently in October.
