Loreena Mc Kennitt : Forthcoming Appearences


Keynote speech for folk conference

Loreena has been invited to deliver the keynote address Saturday, Oct. 15 during the 2011 Ontario Council of Folk Festivals Conference in Niagara Falls.
Over 900 delegates will attend the biggest folk conference in Canada, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. The three-day event is open to industry professionals, part-time volunteers and the general public, and promises to celebrate folk music in all its forms while providing new artists with opportunities for community networking and professional development.

Loreena performing at awards gala

The seventh annual Canadian Folk Music Awards will be held on Sunday, December 4, 2011 at the Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto and Loreena will be a featured performer. Awards will be presented in 19 categories throughout the evening, hosted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's (CBC) Shelagh Rogers and Benoit Bourque of Quebec's folk super group, La Bottine Souriante.

About the Canadian Folk Music Awards

The mission of the Canadian Folk Music Awards is to celebrate and promote Canadian Folk Music in all its forms. Until their creation in 2005, there existed no awards to celebrate the breadth and depth of folk music in Canada. Awards such as the Junos, East Coast Music Awards or the Western Canada Music Awards have a few categories that apply to folk and roots music but they offer only a restricted view of the genre. The judging process is similar to that of the two-stage elimination model used by the Junos via a randomly selected jury drawn from our community.
