From what I see here, there are quite a few stations in OH that aren't showing it currently, but that doesn't mean it won't show up when your station is having their next pledge drive. If nothing else, call and ask them if it's planned smile.gif

I have her new CD winging its way towards me courtesy of the local library. My library is part of a network of suburban libraries in the Chicago area, so you can go online, request any material and pick it up at your library. I will then copy the CD on to my computer and load it on my iPod.

And then order a copy from www.quinlanroad.com, right?

I recently bought Loreena McKennitt's latest CD, An Ancient Muse. I must say that I am a wee bit disappointed after waiting so many years! One of her songs even has the same tune/melody as Highway Man. Gee!

However, there are three songs on her new album that I love immensely and listen to it over and over and over. So there in itself it was worth it for me. smile.gif

I was one of the ones who was not able to see her live concert either..evil PBS stations! tongue.gif I do hope to purchase her live concert DVD. So far I have not seen it on Amazon though.

If you are new to Loreena McKinnett, I would recommend you to get this new album. But don't stop there! Buy all her others as well!

adding some chinese instrument into Celtic is pretty surprising

I bought Ancient Muse when it first came out. You are right it is a little different, but I was glad she came out with a new CD after so long. I have all of her CDs.

Loreena McKennitt is one of my most favorite musicians! Bar none! I have all of her cd's and was wonderfully delighted to see her DVD "Nights of the Alhambra". She has quite an ecclectic group of musicians playing some very unique instruments. There's uliean pipes and an actual hurdy gurdy player in her entourage. Beautiful music!

I copied all of her cd's to my MP3 player and can listen through my truck radio via an adapter.
question- are there any other artists similar to her style? Beside Enya- she sings beautifully as well, but nowhere near Loreena McKennitt's style.

That's a good question. Is there anyone else out there similar to Enya and Loreena M? One possibility is Clannad, with Enya's sister on vocals.

Clannad has really good songs like Loreena and Enya indeed.
"I will find you" is the most well known i think. And it sure is a good song. smile.gif
