McKennitt returns to Knox

Stratford Gazette

Loreena McKennitt will be making special concert appearance in Stratford before starting her long-awaited swing through Canada's Western Provinces in a just-announced summer mini tour in August.

The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 for Best New Age Album. Famous for her world music with Celtic and Middle Eastern themes, she’ll launch this new tour with an intimate concert in Stratford, her home base, on Aug. 8 at Knox Presbyterian Church. Following the Stratford gig, McKennitt will head west for the Regina Folk

Festival (August 10) and the Edmonton Folk Festival (August 11), as well as concerts in Calgary and Vancouver. Additional dates may be added.

“I'm truly excited to be heading back to places that hold such fond memories,” says McKennitt.

The Stratford concert starts at 8 p.m., with tickets going on sale starting this Friday (Mar. 22) through McKennitt’s website at www.loreenamckennitt.com. The price is $65 each.
