September will see Loreena McKennitt undertake her first major Canadian tour since 1998. With 17 concerts scheduled, the tour will take her from Halifax to Vancouver.

This is McKennitt’s third tour this year to support her latest studio recording, An Ancient Muse, a Top Ten success and platinum-selling record in Canada that has sold an additional half a million copies worldwide since its release in November. Spring tours took her to nine European countries, followed by a North American tour covering 21 US cities and five Canadian dates.

“The recording cycle does not feel complete until we have the opportunity to share the music with a live audience, just as one might share a favourite meal with friends,” McKennitt said. “It has been a long time since we have performed in a number of these Canadian cities, and I’m very pleased that we now have a window of opportunity to do so.”

Her acclaimed 8-piece band— she informally calls them the Idling Porsches — are an international group, including players from Canada, the United States and Britain.

McKennitt’s autumn Canadian tour begins in Sherbrooke, Quebec on September 6, and ends at Vancouver’s Orpheum Theatre on September 30. Along the way, McKennitt will return to Montreal’s Place Des Arts (where she sold out a concert in a matter of days in the spring), before heading to Halifax, Moncton and Saint John, NB. A concert at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre, two shows in Quebec City and four dates in Ontario — Kitchener, Hamilton, London and Thunder Bay — will be followed by shows in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
