Wonderful Show in Lakewood, Ohio (Nov 4, 2016)

I saw another fine trio performance last week in Lakewood, OH, at the same nice auditorium where I first saw Loreena perform live some years ago.  Loreena, Brian and Caroline (along with Errol Fischer on fiddle for a few tunes) were in fine form, and we were treated to two new songs.  I took at stab at the titles based on a couple bits of lyrics...maybe Mark can help us out with the names of these songs.  Both featured Loreena on piano, Brian on acoustic guitar, and Caroline on cello.

Oh thank you so much!! I've been hoping someone would post the set!!  By the way, do you happen to remember the title of the book Loreena referenced when she talked about "The Stolen Child"? It was for sale at the mercy table but I didn't purchase it. I was going to check the library. Thank you!!
