Loreena McKennitt has toured Europe extensively in the Spring and Summer of 2012… and this Fall, after a five-year absence, the beloved singer-songwriter-musician returns for a series of unique concerts… intimate performances featuring material from her various recordings including the most recent, The Wind that Shakes the Barley and Troubadours on the Rhine… intimate performances featuring Loreena, accompanied by a select group of gifted musicians.

Accompanied by four of her longtime colleagues, violinist Hugh Marsh, guitarist Brian Hughes, cellist Caroline Lavelle and hurdy-gurdy player/percussionist Ben Grossman, Loreena’s program will consist of music from across her eclectic Celtic catalogue of recordings including her most recent studio recording, The Wind that Shakes the Barley, as well as some lesser-known seasonal carols. Woven into this intimate evening, Loreena will share some of the stories and travels behind her songs… a pursuit of the Celtic story which encompasses her journeys to Ireland, Brittany, Russia , Turkey, Mongolia, China, and beyond.
