Have you heard of Loreena McKennitt? She's an independent music pioneer who's celebrating her 30 year music career with the release The Journey So Far—The Best of Loreena McKennitt, out on March 4th. She's probably best known for her song, The Mummer's Dance, which was featured in the movie The Mists of Avalon.
With 14 million albums sold, a pair of Juno Awards and two Grammy nominations, Loreena McKennitt is known for her groundbreaking blend of Celtic sounds and World Beat. Her career is now documented on this gorgeous retrospective album, with a deluxe edition including a second disc, A Midsummer Night’s Tour, featuring highlights from the live performance recorded at the Zitadelle in Mainz, Germany, in July of 2012—a return to the city in which the 2013 Grammy nominated Troubadours on the Rhine was recorded.
