What Loreena McKennitt does: laces Celtic-tinged world music with a strong soprano, delicate harp, pride in her Irish and Scottish roots, and a fascination with folklore
How long she’s been doing it: since 1985’s Elemental, her debut album that blended her own lyrics and music with traditional songs and passages from poets such as William Blake
Speaking of her albums: She has nine studio albums total, all of which were released on her own Quinlan Road label.
What her music has earned her: two Juno Awards, a Billboard Music Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award from Western Canadian Music Awards, honorary degrees from multiple Canadian universities, a couple of Grammy nominations, a headlining performance for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, and the right to wear a crown of four-leaf clovers
Where else you’ve heard her: on movie soundtracks and TV shows, including Ever After, The Mists of Avalon, and Highlander
