Who Is The Musician?

Ann from Rockford ·
I recently purchased The Best Of album. There is one particular song that I listen to over and over again. "Beneath a Phrygian Sky", Live in Germany 2012. I'm trying to find out who plays the awesome guitar in that song. It really moves me....Please can anyone assist me if in finding out who that is?

Thanks so much for your quick reply. While I'd learned that he'd played with Loreena for many years, I just couldn't picture him playing that particular piece. Man he is good.....certainly a man of many talents. I feel I should ask, are you familiar with that particular song? If not, be sure to listen to it, I can't say enough about it. Thanks again.

My husband and I heard "The Lost Child" in the concert in Vermont last fall. Loreena performed it with much more in mind, as she told us before she sang it. The whole idea of children's minds being rewired as a result of over-exposure to the internet and things like that is chilling. Thank you, Loreena, for caring enough about children to do the research and announce the results of your research publicly. Your intent behind performing it gave the song a whole new meaning. I have worked with...

Hi William, At first, thanks for pointing out that live version of The Stolen Child. You may have a look at the following Smithsonian Folkways page: Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 4, No. 8) Toronto. On that page is given the link to the facsimile of Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 4, No. 8) in pdf. What we understand about the track: - "The baker’s dozen of songs are performed before a live audience." - The piece is performed by Loreena (harp) , David Woodhead (fretless bass and...

Thanks for your response! It is a lovely version of the song, and I wondered if maybe more from that session exist.

Live Version of The Stolen Child

Hi there!   I happened upon a live version of The Stolen Child on Spotify that I've not yet heard. I won't post the link because I'm not sure if the rules allow it, but it's one of just a few tracks by Loreena you can find there. It is a part of an album called "Fast Folk Musical Magazine (Vol. 4, No. 8) Toronto" made in 1989.   I found on Wikipedia that Fast Folk was a way for singer/songwriters to release their first few tracks: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_Folk   I'd...

Indianapolis Performance

Attended Loreena's trio performance last night in Indianapolis. As an ex-pat Canadian living in Indianapolis, I knew to be excited as I had not ever seen her live before. The performance far exceeded my own high expectations. What a night! What a voice! To my heart's delight, the crowd was sizable and very enthusiastic! I wasn't sure how many people in this city/region would be aware of Loreena and her magnificent voice. The response from the crowd made me proud. Great show!

My wife and I were at the concert in Indianapolis IN on the Butler Campus. I am from the UK and my wife is from Indiana. We both thoroughly enjoyed the concert and all of Loreena's work on CD and DVD. It appears that Indiana is not the cultural wasteland it appears as I agree there were plenty of fans in attendance. Looking forward to the new album hopefully in 2017.
