Loreena McKennitt
Loreena McKennitt

The Canadian singer/songwriter/harpinist Loreena McKennitt has an outstanding beautiful, clear voice. Her music covers Celtic, Folk, World music, medieval.... It won't fail to take you on a journey and suddenly you are spellbound by the sheer beauty of the songs. From the very beginning of her career Loreena McKennitt has been self-managed and still is the head of her own record label, Quinlan Road.

My favourite albums are"The mask and the mirror" (1994) and the superb 1999 released 2-CD-set "Live in Paris & Toronto"
Almost 10 years after the release of her last studio album "The book of secrets", Loreena is back with her latest release "An ancient muse" (2006)

and surprised us with an extended world tour (Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, U.K., Belgium, Canada, U.S.A.) in 2007.

For the concert dates and further informations please check the official Quinlan Road website.

I was lucky enough to attend the first concert of the tour in Stuttgart/Germany (Liederhalle) on 11th of March 2007, a wonderful concert, no doubt one of the best I have ever been to. Loreena was in good mood and sounded phantastic, the musicians were first class and the sound was excellent. They played 2 sets of almost 2 1/2 hours, a good mix of old and new songs and also one of my favourites "The Highwayman". It was a great experience and a magic night.
