Founded by Ukrainian Eva and Englishman Paul, musicians with experience touring in Great Britain and Ukraine, international ethnic-fusion project Dark Patrick is gaining speed, taking part in all the biggest Ukrainian folk festivals. Each member of the group has mastery of several modern and folk instruments (often playing more than one at once). The lead singer brings us powerful vocal performances in several languages, covering a wide vocal range from Contralto to Dramatic Soprano and with her natural delicate beauty; photomodel Eva has a hypnotic, almost magical effect on her audiences. Drawing opon their wide musical tastes from ethnic to hard rock and from blues to electronic music and experience of folklore expeditions and touring and traveling in Ukraine, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England, Dark Patrick have developed their own unique style which brings together the music of various ethnic traditions, but most promenantly Ukrainian and Irish, which they deliver to audiences with such force, fullness and extravagance that it is hard to believe that there are only two people on stage.
