Upon after years of having to listen to Country, Rock, and other main stream genre’s on the radio and the internet, I’ve found the musical style of Loreena McKennitt to be pretty refreshing.
Sometimes it’s a good thing to be able to sit down and relax with music that allows you to set the mood independent from all of the regular musical noise that’s out there.
I hope you might find this piece of music from Loreena McKennitt to be as delightful as I have found it to be. Enjoy!
