The performance of Loreena McKennittThe critically acclaimed album tells the story of the music and stories that inspired the artist on his exotic journeys in search of Celtic traditions, from China and Mongolia to Turkey and Ireland. It is enriched by the combination of Yeats's mystical poetry and the work of classical authors such as Shakespeare and Tennyson and includes material from his Troubadours on the Rhine, which earned her a nomination in 2012 for the Grammy. Joining Loreena McKennitt on stage will be two of her longest-serving collaborators, guitarist Brian Hughes and cellist Caroline Lavelle. This trio performance has a much more intimate character than her previous performances with her band and is interwoven with personal and inspirational stories that go straight to the heart of the audience.

"It's hard to believe that it's been five years since we last came to Europe, and that's a really long time for us - it's a very long time. says Loreena McKennitt - We have always loved performances abroad, especially in spring. I'm personally looking forward to sharing this trio performance with the audience and particularly its inherent intimacy. And, of course, it's always a pleasure to meet new people and reconnect with those we've met on previous tours."
