Celebrate the holiday season with Loreena McKennitt’s Under A Winter’s Moon, a captivating live performance of carols and tales that blends Celtic, Indigenous, and Welsh cultures.
Join the Juno Award-winning Canadian artist and her musical companions as they transport you to a world of music and spoken word that connects us with our past and the spirit of the season. Hear 15 seasonal songs, including “Coventry Carol,” “Good King Wenceslas,” and the “Huron Carol,” as well as a performance of Dylan Thomas’s nostalgic A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Gemini Award-winning actor Cedric Smith, interspersed with more songs from McKennitt. She will be accompanied by Caroline Lavelle on cello and recorders, Ojibway artist and flautist Jeffrey “Red” George, and members of the Celtic group The Bookends, including Errol Fischer on fiddle, Pete Watson on guitar and bouzouki, and Cait Watson on Irish whistle, joined by Romano DiNillo on percussion.

Her recordings have achieved Gold, Platinum, and multi-Platinum status in 15 countries on four continents. She has twice been nominated for a Grammy Award and has won two Juno Awards, as well as a Billboard International Achievement Award. In 2004, McKennitt was awarded the Order of Canada and in 2013 was appointed Knight of the National Order of Arts and Letters of the Republic of France.
