Eight more performances in Germany!

March 1, 2012

Loreena has just announced A Midsummer Night’s Tour, her second tour planned for this coming spring and summer. It includes eight performances in Germany between July 16 and July 24, many of them in outdoor venues and historic sites, including a 1600s Renaissance fortress and a floating stage on the Rhine River. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now, for members of the Quinlan Road Community.

Loreena’s summer tour will have a different musical flavour than her recently announced spring Celtic Footprints Tour and will incorporate more of the Celtic-related Eastern influences. “I’m thrilled to be coming back to Europe again this summer and sharing a different kind of performance,” says Loreena, “Many of the concerts will also be outdoors, which creates a unique atmosphere and experience for both the audience and the musicians.”

A Midsummer Night’s Tour will encompass Cologne, Berlin, Dresden, Lorrach, Mainz, Wurzburg, Munich, Gelsenkirchen and includes a performance at the Cambridge Folk Festival, one of the longest running and most famous folk festivals in the world. As you know from earlier dispatches, Loreena recently announced her Celtic Footprints Tour, a 32-performance, 11-country spring tour that kicks off March 17 in Switzerland and winds up April 27 in Spain. That tour, which includes 12 performances in Germany, will pay homage to the more traditional roots of Celtic music, celebrating the many Celtic ‘footprints’ throughout Europe. Many of those concerts are sold out or are close to sold out.
