LOREENA MCKENNITT: A MOVEABLE MUSICAL FEAST follows Canadian singer/composer Loreena McKennitt as she embarks on her 2007 An Ancient Muse tour. The performance documentary offers a rare backstage look at one of contemporary music's most interesting live acts. Candid behind-the-scenes interviews with McKennitt, her band, crew and colleagues reveal the rigors of touring. McKennitt and her fellow travellers entertain viewers with stories of how they "raise a small village" each night they perform, discuss the joys and challenges of their nomadic life on the road, and explain the creative relationships they share with one another, the music and the audience. A MOVEABLE MUSICAL FEAST features previously unreleased musical performances of "Never-Ending Road (Amhran Duit)" and "The Gates of Istanbul."
