The multi-award winning Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, who last year just released her first recording of original songs since 2006, has announced she will bring her Lost Souls Tour to the UK in March.

McKennitt will be accompanied by fellow musicians Brian Hughes on guitars, oud and Celtic bouzouki, Caroline Lavelle on cello, Hugh Marsh on violin, Dudley Philips on double bass and more.

While the concert will draw on McKennitt’s expansive catalogue of recordings, she will also be performing songs from her latest album. McKennitt composed several of the songs on Lost Souls some time ago. Others have been progressively taking shape in the midst of more recent projects and journeys. A few draw on the poetry of John Keats and W.B. Yeats, while another evokes a distinct Middle Eastern flavour. In Lost Souls the songs all come together to create an artistically diverse and timely collection.

She has performed in some of the world’s most-respected and historic concert venues, from Carnegie Hall to the famous Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain and for dignitaries including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and numerous heads of state.
