Loreena McKennitt releases her first 'unplugged' recording to coincide with her European tour. Troubadours on the Rhine features the singer in a unique radio performance in a 'house concert' setting.

During the promotional tour of The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Loreena performed an hour-long concert in the studios of German radio station SWR1, accompanied only by Brian Hughes (guitars) and Caroline Lavelle (cello) who have long been part of her tours and recordings.

Over the course of the evening, McKennitt performed material from her new album, alongside traditional songs and fan favourites drawn from her catalogue, including The Lady of Shalott, Bonny Portmore and The Bonny Swans.

"This is quite different from my other recordings. The experience was akin to an intimate house concert that I might have performed in my living room for a handful of friends." - Loreena McKennitt

Meanwhile, McKennitt - who has sold more than 14 million records worldwide - is preparing for her 2012 "Celtic Footprints" World Tour in March, with an opening leg that includes 32 European dates in 11 countries - playing to more than 60,000 people.
