Loreena McKennitt, Budapest Aréna,  29 March
Please come and enjoy Loreena McKennitt's eclectic Celtic blend of pop, folk and world music on March 29, 2019 from 8:00 PM at the Papp Laszlo Budapest Sports Arena.

The organizer of the Budapest concert is the Danubius Music Production Office.

Ticket sale for the general public starts on Friday, June 29th at 10:00 AM online at www.eventim.hu, and in the ticket offices of Ticket Express.

The multi-award winning Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, who recently released her first recording of original songs since 2006, has announced the Central Europe leg of her Lost Souls Tour. The tour will include 24 concerts in eight countries between March 9th and April 7th 2019.

The tour will include performances in the U.K., the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Hungary, Belgium and France. McKennitt will also perform at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London.

She 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.

The spring tour follows McKennitt’s 2018 South American fall tour, which will take her to Brazil, Argentina and Chile.  

“The process of creating a new album doesn’t feel complete until we get to share it live with people. It’s like sitting down to a meal with friends, where the collective feeling of being together becomes so much larger and richer than its individual parts,” says McKennitt. “It is also our hope to return again next summer to perform in other regions of Europe and the Mediterranean.”

The concerts will draw on McKennitt’s expansive catalogue of recordings, as well as her new 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.

Produced by the award-winning artist herself, Lost Souls is an eclectic tapestry of songs drawn from a wide range of influences, including Celtic and Middle Eastern, with which she has long been identified. The album was released to critical acclaim on May 11, 2018.

Lost Souls is suffused with a mood of Celtic folk classicism that is undoubtedly calming, possibly enriching.” -- The Times UK

Loreena McKennitt’s eclectic Celtic blend of pop, folk and world music has sold over 14 million albums worldwide.

Honorary Colonel of the Royal Canadian Air Force
