Loreena McKennit at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville on 10/30/16. Canadian musician Lorenna McKennit has had a long and successful career spanning on and off for just over 30 years. Playing a wide array of instruments, including the piano, harp and accordion, her music is heavily influenced by Celtic and Middle Eastern sounds. She brought her trio performance to Nashville on the night before Halloween and was joined on stage by guitarist Brian Hughes and cellist Caroline Lavelle. Along with performing her songs, she also told stories of her travels abroad and talked about the meanings behind many of her songs, as well as injecting some stories of her experiences performing over the years. It was a very intimate and captivating concert experience.
