I was wondering is anyone is a fan of her music.
If you don't know who she is, she is an irish musician that uses celtic, middle eastern and other types of influences in her music.
I am quite lucky that my ma bought one of her cd's on a whim.

I'd love to hear peoples opinions about her music and such

McKennit's got a fine voice, and does carry through a lot of influences into the music, I can't say I'm a "fan," although I don't rush to change the station if she comes on my car radio. But then, I'm a fan of most music, with a few notable exceptions.

Thats cool. I wish she would even be on the radio in New Zealand.
It seems like only my mother and I know who she is in this country.
Care to elaborate on what those exceptions are?

Twangy country, gangsta rap and "Christmas" music.

I like naughty Christmas carol parodies. Ever heard "Stroke-a my, lick-a my, suck-a my cock" sung to the tune of "Jingle Bell Rock"? I've got a whole CD full of them, and they're much better than the originals.

As for Loreena McKennitt, I have one CD of hers (The Book of Secrets), but I haven't listened to it in so long, and I never really listened to it much anyway. From what I remember, though, it's not that bad. I like the incorporation of Middle Eastern folk music and instrumentation, despite the largely Celtic formula she incorporates it into. It doesn't really seem out of place, however.

No i haven't heard that song but i think i might have to give it ago

That is my favorite album by her. she manages to arrange her music very well without like you said, being out of place. i also love that she plays a lot of the instruments on her albums too
