Loreena McKennitt’s Lost Souls Tour Heading to Central Europe Next Spring

The multi-award winning Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, who recently released her first recording of original songs since 2006, has announced the Central Europe leg of her Lost Souls Tour. The tour will include 24 concerts in eight countries between March 9th and April 7th 2019.

The tour will include performances in the U.K., the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary, Belgium and France. McKennitt will also perform at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London.

She will be accompanied by fellow musicians Brian Hughes on guitars, oud and Celtic bouzouki, Caroline Lavelle on cello, Hugh Marsh on violin, Dudley Philips on double bass and more.

The concerts will draw on McKennitt’s expansive catalogue of recordings, as well as her new album. McKennitt composed several of the songs on Lost Souls some time ago. Others have been progressively taking shape in the midst of more recent projects and journeys. A few draw on the poetry of John Keats and W.B. Yeats, while another evokes a distinct Middle Eastern flavour. In Lost Souls the songs all come together to create an artistically diverse and timely collection.

Produced by the award-winning artist herself, Lost Souls is an eclectic tapestry of songs drawn from a wide range of influences, including Celtic and Middle Eastern, with which she has long been identified. The album was released to critical acclaim on May 11, 2018.
