One of the most successful independent releases ever in McKennitts native Canada, the self-produced 1989 album Parallel Dreams is also her first recording to feature the artists own lyrical contributions. From the poignant traditional ballad Annachie Gordon to the fiery Native AmericanCeltic fusion of Huron Beltane Fire Dance to the evocative tale of a childs yearning for home in Dickens Dublin The Palace , Loreenas third recording shows a marked evolution beyond the realm of traditional Celtic music and heads down the road on an eclectic musical journey.

Fully immersed in the Celtic style, this London, Ontario, performer's voice is lush and layered in warm harmonies, soaring overtop equally beautiful instrumentation.
