Following the release of her new album Lost Souls (Quinlan Road, 2018) in May 2019, Canadian singer-songwriter Loreena McKennitt returns to Italy with a summer tour that will visit the Sferisterio arena on Wednesday, 24 July.
“I’m thrilled to be back in some of the places I’ve already visited and to see some of the same people I first met on previous tours; but I’m also delighted to be performing in some new and beautiful places I’ve never seen before.”
About ten years after the release of her previous album, Loreena McKennitt came back in May with a new project, which she is ready to present throughout Europe. The Irish and Scottish origins of the singer-songwriter have always influenced her music, which draws inspiration from Celtic folk songs, with an added personal and international touch. The results are amazing and have received international acclaim.
Joining Loreena McKennitt on the Sferisterio stage will be Brian Hughes (guitar, oud and Celtic bouzouki), Caroline Lavelle (cello), Hugh Marsh (violin), Dudley Philips (double bass), and Robert Brian (drums).
The concert is part of the Sferisterio Live Festival, offered by the Associazione Arena Sferisterio and the Municipality of Macerata, in collaboration with Best Events.
