Brian Hughes (acoustic & electric guitar, balalaika); George Koller (fiddle, sitar, cello, tamboura, bass); Hugh Marsh (fiddle); Anne Bourne (cello); Tom Hazlett (bass); Patrick Hutchinson (Uillean pipes); Rick Lazar (Udu drum, percussion); Al Cross (drums).
Recorded at Inception Studios, Toronto, Canada. Includes liner notes by Loreena McKennitt.
With her piercing vocals and sensual, exotic sound, Loreena McKennitt has single-handedly made tangible the passions of Celtic and pagan life for her large, devoted audience. Her fourth release, THE VISIT, was her breakthrough, a satisfying mixture of original compositions and adaptations. "The Lady of Shalott" is an 11-minute rendition of the Alfred Lord Tennyson poem, while McKennitt archly notes that she sings the subdued "Greensleeves" in her best Tom Waits impersonation.
