"A reverent, resonant blend of Celtic-rooted ballads and exotics."
-The New York Times

"McKennitt skillfully weaves different strains of musical tradition into a tapestry that underscores her plea for diversity and acceptance."
-The Boston Globe

With a recording career spanning more than two decades and over 14 million albums sold worldwide, Canadian artist Loreena McKennitt continues to explore the many aspects of traditional Celtic music with the release of her forthcoming album, The Wind That Shakes The Barley. Due November 16 on Verve, the album marks a pointed return to the traditional Irish and Scottish music that began McKennitt's career, revisiting the age-old music of Elemental, her 1985 debut.
