Mummer's Dance




Once upon a time, my daughter was listening to this on a family car trip - long before the advent of iPods. She had a portable cd player with earplugs. I remember being blown away by this song.

What is it about the mysterious northern Shetland Isles of Scotland and the Outer Hebrides? I have always felt a strange kinship whenever I look at photos of these faraway places.

Now Loreena McKennitt is a forever favorite of mine. Sometimes teenagers have terrific taste! Thanks, Larissa!

Those who believe in reincarnation would say that you feel that kinship because you have lived there in a previous life.

The scenery was just beautiful. I feel like I just had a trip to Scotland.

The lochs are just beautiful and I even enjoyed seeing Nessie.

Thanks for the tour.

Scotland is one of the countries that has long been high on my list of places I want to visit -- has always drawn me. This music is hauntingly mysterious and appealing with the spectacular videos serving to reinforce my attraction there.
