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...

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...

Hi Loreenakateers! I've been somewhat inactive here for a while, so for those who aren't familiar with me: I'm an eccentric Tasmanian troubadour who plays a variety of instruments and has a soft spot for Nordic culture, cats, and chocolate. Like most people everyone here, I'm hugely inspired by Loreena McKennit's music and I'm currently recording an album which features a lot of songs and tunes that you'll all be familiar with, including (I can safely say having just got the green light from...

Growing a forest is definitely needed. It is our responsibility, regardless of belief system or political path, to be stewards of Creation. On occasion, Ms. McKennitt would mention, whether in speech or song, about how much she cares for trees and its gradual decimation. The warm months are a good place to start. There are saplings waiting to be planted and become towering wooden giants for the animals to play on and make their homes. We depend on some of them for their luscious, seasonal...

In speaking of drinks, Wizard, have you tried an Arnold Palmer? It's not that bad. I am also beginning to think about the maple trees in Canada and the sap that comes out of them to produce maple syrup. I should have asked Quinlan Road to sell 100% Canadian maple syrup to help Ms. McKennitt's environment and tree-saving efforts. I bet that any of Ms. McKennitt's fans would like to have that on their tables, especially at breakfast time when the pancakes and the french toast are being served.

I never had that drink whats in it? Yeah Loreenya their are alot of beautiful trees here in Oregon. And it's nice to know that the government here has reforestation contracts, We would climb the tree's and collect their cones before they open and the wind blew the seed. I wonder if they do that anyplace else ? Mt. Shasta was where we were and thats in California. Very different people their kind of like Hippies from the 60's. They say Grace though and have Yahweh as the word for God. I think...

So, wizard, you asked me what an Arnold Palmer is? An Arnold Palmer is a drink comprised of half lemonade and half iced tea and it is said to be attributed the late golf legend when he sat at a diner and ordered a drink with a mix of lemonade and iced tea. Then, a female customer saw what Palmer had and said, "I would like an Arnold Palmer" and soon afterward, the others wanted to give it a go. It's funny and interesting how people have to name drinks after other notable names, including a...

Making sense of it all thanks Loreenya, I am going to go to A park named Palmerton Park. It has tree's from all over A Monkey puzzle tree, Chinese Redwood, Oaks, Maples. And so many others they have A map their so people can find them. It is an Arbor Day award winning place. Good day, I should post A picture of some of them.

Loreenya the book you are writing is off to A good start. I have never published A book yet. I have written A few songs that Alanis Moresette has sang. We wrote them together when we were in our teens, "Supposed former infatuation junky" it is nice to see her go places. I got saved along with her by an angel. I know that I just have to allow that amazing grace to work in my life again and God will inspire me to inspire others that want life, liberty, and peace.

When I get rolling on A subject it makes me inspired knowing that Loreena has helped me remember things. I got educated in grammar school about American history. We studied about how the Bonnie Swans saved lives by warning the Patriots. News also reached America eventually about Paul Jones breaking his sword and they found John Lee changed his name to John Paul Jones, his father was relieved to find this out. Because his father Henry Lee went to West Point from Richmond Virginia leaving his...

Wizard, you have a lot of ideas to share with us in regards history and such. Have you thought about doing a lecture on the subjects you were discussing here on this forum? The other thing is since this about growing a forest and the like, I am thinking about the myth of young George Washington cutting down the cherry tree. This could somewhat connect with McKennitt's concern for the trees through "Bonny Portmore." In the meantime, I hope that the cherries up north are plentiful and good...

Wizard, there is a farm about north of where I live and it has an apple orchard along with acres of cherries, raspberries, peaches and other fresh produce growing in the fields. When there is the opportunity, my father and I would go to pick fruit, but usually, that happens every June or early July when it's time to harvest the strawberries. It's amazing what Creation, even with the trees, has to offer in terms of what we humans can consume. I don't know exactly where I can locate a nearby...

This will provide A better income for them by keeping the forest also because of their medicinal properties. So the pharmacy company's hire...

It's a good thing that some companies are open to environmental stewardship and responsibility. That is what God wants us all to do. When it comes to trees and environment, the Colonel seems to be quite the activist. It is a stark contrast to the intention behind Enya's "The Memory of Trees." Still, "The Visit" and "The Memory of Trees" both focus on the connection between trees and Celtic mythology.

Paradise can be found sometimes by accident, I was on A hike and came across some really cool sculptings made in the snow. And I was overlooking A town that was not on the map. This was in Alberta Canada someplace, the trees were very tall and full. Made my way on foot and saw Gods hands were making things that are great. Had to leave all of these wonders behind and just be thankful I saw them.

Wizard I like your perspective on trees as recently I opened to the awareness that trees have souls. I had to take a multistate trip by truck recently and I realized I have read land and wind by how trees sound and bend. Trees protect. I saw homes in the middle of nowhere with old old trees protecting them. I remember home by the sound of the breeze on leaves. There are two sides to every leaf that rustles in the wind. Conifers mean I am in an older forest and higher in the mountains. It...

I don't know whats next ? Remembering about stuff that was fun is happening now but afterwards was not. Maybe if I give A quick oversight, kind of like climbing A tree without getting entangled in the branches. You go over them by throwing A rope around the highest branch. I will find the solution this way climbing the rope over them. Then prune the unwanted branches on the way back down, sculpting A beautiful tree.
