Loreena McKennitt Tickets - The Heart of a Musician in Stratford, OntarioNo one would've ever thought that the daughter of a nurse and livestock trader would end up being a revolutionary songstress for the world. This daughter did it, and did it well, though. Born back in 1957, Loreena McKennitt took that passion for music and made it her own as she even studied on how to make and sell her own recording by reading Diane Sward Rapaport's book on the topic. Her own label was called Quinlan Road, and it was the beginning of her career and then some.
Loreena McKennitt Tickets - The Music of McKennittHer first two albums were a nine-song cassette called Elemental in 1985 and a Christmas album called To Drive the Cold Winter Away in 1987. But it wasn't until she ended up releasing 1989's monumental album Parallel Dreams to the world with a staggering 40,000 copies sold within four months of the album release. Warner Canada took notice, represented her work, and the album continued to sell over 600,000 copies after that, going platinum six times. She also received a Juno Award and gave McKennitt enough clout to release a second proper album called The Mask and Mirror in 1994. She became so popular that you'd hear her music everywhere from the record store to the silver screen to just your everyday TV at home. She's done arrangements for such films as Jade, The Santa Clause, and Highlander III, along with a few TV shows like Northern Exposure, Due South, and EZ Streets.
Loreena McKennitt Tickets - The Sound and Style of McKennittMany would consider Celtic music a splendor in itself, a cultural awakening for the music industry. Remember the popular CD collection 'Pure Moods'? Throw it away -- because nothing compares to McKennitt's Celtic style of music.
