Loreena McKennitt - Once Upon An Ancient Road
On 15 August 2012 Loreena announced a series of concerts, entitles Once Upon An Ancient Road, in the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ottawa in December 2012.
Tour dates were at one time listed on the official website; see this list at my site.
The announcement writes this about the tour:
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.More info will be added when available.
"I'm very much looking forward to sharing some of the more intimate material. I have always loved playing with the larger band (performing songs like The Mummers' Dance, etc.) and will do so in the future," says Loreena. "These concerts, however, are intended to be a much more personal experience, which will have a different focus in terms of songs and arrangements. And it will be a pleasure to include some seasonal works, which I haven't had the opportunity to perform in the past."
