An Ancient Muse
Label: Quinlan Road
Loreena McKennitt was one of world music's biggest stars when the tragic death of her fiance made her revaluate her musical and personal priorities. Now, war and global strife have reignited a fire in McKennitt. With this spellbinding sonic travelogue, she connects various strains of Celtic folk to diverse music from across the globe. Instead of sounding like a pastiche, the results sound of a piece.
