Loreena McKennitt - Live in concert
After the success of the album An Ancient Muse and the tour in 2007 with the same name, Loreena starts a Live in Concert tour with concerts in Europe in the Summer of 2008. Tour dates were listed on the Performances page on the official website; see also this list at my site.
I had the opportunity to go to the very first concert of the Tour, in The Hague (The Netherlands) on 27 June. The concert was wonderful! Loreena performed a variety of songs. Some of these were also performed at the tour in 2007, other songs were not.
The concert booklet did not have the list of songs Loreena performed, and I did not make notes -- I enjoyed the songs! -- so I cannot give the set list here, until someone has sent it to me. In any case, the concert started with "She moved through the fair", also Loreena also performed "Raglan Road", "Caravanserai", "Bonne Portmore", "The Lady of Shalott" (abridged), "The old ways", "The highwayman", and more.
