Faire Warning

Little surprise that Loreena McKennitt’s new CD and DVD, Nights From the Alhambra, was recorded at some old, ornate palace in Spain. The Canadian singer-songwriter’s blend of Celtic new age and ethereal folk is readymade for opulent citadels and lush vistas. Alhambra documents McKennitt’s 2006 tour in support of An Ancient Muse, a record that loaded up on exotic Middle Eastern instruments and songs with titles like “The English Ladye and the Knight.” It can all get very medieval faire-creepy at times, but McKennitt keeps it grounded with her delicate voice and smart melodic hooks. Huzzah!
