Loreena McKennitt - Under A Winter's Moon - A concert of carols and tales
Tour in December 2022

In September 2022, Loreena announced in an email to the members list the release of a new album and a short seasonal tour.

Extracts from that email and from the official website:

Loreena performed and recorded a series of live seasonal concerts with special guests in December 2021. She's now releasing that magical concert as her 16th album, entitled Under A Winter's Moon - with a two-week companion TOUR of Ontario set to launch in early December.

The eight-city Under A Winter's Moon Tour launches Dec. 2 in Stratford. The original seasonal concert will be re-staged with its original musicians and narrators. They'll be taking the concert to seven other Ontario cities, including London, Guelph, Hamilton, Toronto, Peterborough and Kingston, wrapping up in Ottawa Dec. 17.

Loreena will be accompanied by Caroline Lavelle on cello and recorders, Graham Hargrove on percussion, Errol Fischer on fiddle, Pete Watson on guitar and 12-string bouzouki, and Cait Watson on Irish whistle. All these musicians also added back-up vocals for the performance. Tom Jackson's narration will be a recorded playback on the tour.

"On a handful of winter's nights close to the solstice of December 2021, my musical friends and I wove this miscellany of music and spoken word," writes Loreena in the new album's liner notes. "#I sought to incorporate elements of the oral traditions found in many cultures - to capture, inspire and reconnect us with our past, while offering a reminder of the people of those times and what their manner of communication meant in their lives and might mean still." ~ Loreena
