Alright, so I'll try my best to recap the show from my eyes.....

As we passed the Paramount Hotel a couple came out of the doors and then man stuck a Loreena McKennitt ticket in his pocket. At this point, I grinned foolishly because I had realized other people had come to Seattle to see her as well. I've been living in a conception that she is not well known...Anyways, after we passed the Paramount hotel, the theater was only a short distane away;


After the men at the door scanned our tickets we proceeded to the lobby, it greatly reminded me of a theater we have in Montana, because it too is very historic and elaborate. I proceeded to buy some merchandise; some postcards to hang on my wall and a small poster as well. We then stood by the doors waiting to enter (we were a little early). Once they opened the doors, we entered, the stage was beautiful (I took a picture...OooOo I'm so bad...)


It was amazing! Around 8pm the lights dimmed after a few moments a light came on and Loreena was playing her harp, she began the evening with "She moved through the faire", at this point I began to cry. I know, I'm so pathetic, my explanation is that I've waited 13 years to see her live and I finally did (meeting her definitely was an extra bonus!). She played; The Highwayman, The Bonny Swans, Greensleves (Someone had requested it for their anniversary!), The Old Ways, Penelope's Song, Beneath a Phrygian Sky, The Mystic Dream, Dante's Prayer, Proluge, All Soul's Night, Caravanserai, The Lady of Shallot and those are the ones that I can think of, I know she played more....because she did 2 encores....The audience was wonderful because everyone knew the songs and got really excited when she began playing the songs. It was wonderful....Anyways, after the show we took a few more pictures of the theater:


and then went to the back where the tour busses were, there was a crowd of about 30 people gathered. Slowly the musicians filtered out, the fiddle player and the celloist. Both amazing artists and then finally Loreena Came out:


She met everyone, when it was my turn, my back was to her because I thought she was going to meet the person next to me and I was talking, but when I turned around there she was! My first reaction was; "Hi! How are you?" (instead of the gushing that everyone else did) she replied "I'm alright! How are you!?" I replied "I'm Great!" and then we laughed/giggled. I now think I should of said something else...but.....oh well...she then signed my was great...I'm going to have it framed...Hehehe....Anyways...there we go....

I love Celtic music... are there any other musicians here? I play flute and tinwhistle, and i also sing. I used to play violin, but i wasn't good enough to play all the really fast jigs and reels that I wanted to play... but that's what the whistle and the flute are for. :D

I like bagpipes too, especially when they're paired with drums. So stirring! lol I also like the flute, whistle, small pipes, and ulliean (sp?) pipes. Oh, and the harp, and the fiddle! And..well, just about all the instruments!

I love Anuna! They are great. And I've been meaning to find some Celtic Woman but I haven't. -_-

Bagpipes are AWESOME! :happy:

And the Gaelic language is so beautiful.

Iona, Eden's Bridge, Clannad, Capercaillie, the Chieftains, Maire Brennan, Enya, Kate Rusby, Anuna, Loreena McKennit, Cherish the Ladies...many more that I don't really listen to, but like their music.

I love celtic music, it's almost the only thing I listen to! I'm in the choir at school, and we sing a lot of celtic music--so my director often gives me the solos for the celtic songs! :)

I really like Kate Rusby performing a duet with John Doyle on Bitter The Parting.

I listen to a lot of Celtic music myself but am not familiar with very many of the artists. I guess I listen to a select few of the artists such as Celtic Women and High kings and a few others. (some of which I really don't even know the names of) I do, greatly enjoy the celtic music, though. I've always wanted to go see one of the celtic or irish groups in concert but I have never been able to.
