Loreena McKennit at The Jubilee Auditorium
Loreena McKennitt makes a long-awaited swing through western Canada this summer. Originally from a small Manitoba town, McKennitt’s first record in 1985 - made to support downtown Toronto busking – took her across the country on the first of dozens of concert tours she’s made since. Succeeding records reflect her world adventures and ongoing search for the roots of Celtic music. Fiercely independent, she has always retained control of her music, record label and active business. Along the way, she has won numerous prizes and awards, including membership in the Order of Canada and has sold 14 million records, written film and television scores and created 3 concert DVDs.
