Is the forum dead?

Hello everyone,

or, should I rather ask: Is there anyone out there?
I've been absent from the message board for a few years, life just happened this way. And now that I am back I find this forum completely empty... All tumbleweeds and dust, only masses of spam posts popping up every time I check back. That's so sad.

Where are you? Have you moved on? Will you be coming back? Any new faces here? And, most of all, why is nobody stopping the flood of spam topics?! I seriously thing that this forum is in need of some decluttering.

I hope I can ready someone out there.

All the best, 

My Lords, do whatever you wish. As for me, I shall do no otherwise than pleases me. ~Elizabeth I.

I still stop by here, but there’s not much to discuss while Loreena works on her new projects.  The forum definitely picked up in activity during the recent tour, and I’m sure it will again when Loreena is ready to share her latest creations.  Even the official Facebook page hasn’t made a post in months.  It’s just a quiet limbo period.

The spam posts are a shame, though!

Hi Elizabeth! Actually I just popped on here myself to see if there were any updates or rumors of news, so it was nice to see a living person, not just all that spam that is on the board! Hoping we hear something new soon, it's been a while! Take care, from Athens Ohio

Hello Loreena Fans! Life has taken me away from the message board. I still stop by once in a while. I'm glad to see some good topics to chat about. It's been the hardest year and a half for me and my husband and listening to Loreena has been a huge comfort to me that I forget I have other artists to listen to.

This board has slowed down since I started visiting it, oh so many years ago. I always seem to find such nice and gracious people on this board. I don't go on anyother message boards. Loreena's career and life has smitten me to no end. I seem to find something about her, her music, lyrics, rhythms, interviews, points of views that seem to improve my humdrum life.

I do apologize for rambling. It's late at night, I should be in bed, yet my head keeps saying there's something out there that it needs to know. Something I can think about while I fall asleep. I hope all the best to Loreena, her staff, and her fans and family. Take care and happy eclectic Celticing!


Hi everyone, 

so glad to see real people here (and, the daily amount of new spam posts  . I agree that there is nothing new to talk about right now - I just feared that online communication has moved on elsewhere without me.

I haven't listened to Loreena's music much during the last years, only recently I got back into her. Listening to all those well-known songs on my mp3 player while power-cleaning the house was a re-revelation to me. Such good stuff!

Have a lovely day, everyone!


Affected by your new song, "Breaking of the Sword" where this song transcends into my American Culture where, we are experiencing many selfish behaviors when I wish, those who are throwing tantrums would see that life is a sacrifice. Marriage, parenting, citizenship is a sacrifice. We somehow collectively step back to allow others to grow or we step forward to give all we have for the greater good. I am however, weary that these humans (in the song) were 'bred' for the 'king'. For who is the king but an egotistical materialistic monster? And we do not contain the DNA to defeat his power, only we burden under the power of him, suffering him, abolishing our very selves...for one we do not know & never will know. If I am going to die, may I die finding my own power for in her (me) at least I know truth & justice prevails, not in selfish egotistical predatorial overlords known as Kings & Queens.

Yes we all are still here. Haha. I just come back lurking around once in while. Haha. But now a days I use Instagram and follow Loreena to really keep me posted if anything new comes up since her team does a pretty good job at updating her FB and Instagram. Then I hop on to the message board on here like today after her new single came up on my feed today.

But don't be dishearten, we are all still here. Just around in the world going on with our journey with her music in our heart and hand. Yet it's amazing how I still listen to her weekly. Hehe. Much love. ❤❤❤❤

Surely, this forum is growing and growing as the tree on the Quinlan Road logo (yes, it is apparently small, but figuratively, it is). Now, that there are those of us who know that Ms. McKennitt is quitting Facebook soon, the number of forum members and community updates are expected to increase in the coming weeks and months. So, spread the word about Ms. McKennitt and her work. Tell your friends and loved ones to join the conversation the Loreena McKennitt Community Messageboard. It's just that simple.
