To commemorate the 30th anniversary of her Juno Award-winning album, The Visit, independent Canadian artist and composer Loreena McKennitt is heading out on tour this fall. Aptly titled The Visit Revisited, the tour begins with five cities in Ontario and Quebec.
In September 2021, McKennitt released The Visit: The Definitive Edition, a deluxe limited-edition, hardback book format. The original album, released in Canada in 1991 and internationally in 1992, marked a life-altering turning point in her career. In fact, The Visit propelled McKennitt onto the world stage, a place where she has been comfortable ever since.
“This album was a major landmark in my career,” declares Loreena, “and personally it’s always so interesting and often enlightening to revisit one’s early work to see how the inspiration for it has evolved.”
Accompanying McKennitt on tour will be long-time musical companions Caroline Lavelle on cello, Brian Hughes on guitar, Hugh Marsh on violin, and Dudley Phillips on bass. Performances will include every song on The Visit, (in the order which they appear on the album), as well as other favourites from across her catalogue.
Loreena McKennitt’s eclectic Celtic blend of pop, folk and world music has sold over 14 million albums worldwide. Her recordings have achieved Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum status in 15 countries, on four continents. She has twice been nominated for a Grammy Award and has won two Juno Awards, as well as a Billboard International Achievement Award.
Loreena has performed in some of the world’s most iconic concert venues, including Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, Le Grand Rex in Paris and Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, to name only a few. Furthermore, she has performed for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II plus numerous heads of state and dignitaries.
