BPK – Huron ‘Beltane’ Fire Dance/The Old Ways (Loreena McKennitt) Piano Cover

Fire and Water. Loreena McKennitt’s The Old Ways, opening with Huron ‘Beltane’ Fire Dance, an instrumental from her second album Parallel Dreams. The Old Ways is a rich piece placed near the end of Loreena’s breakthrough album, The Visit. Inspired by one of her earlier visits to Ireland and the grave stature of the sea, Loreena repeats a passage several times both at the beginning and closing: «The thundering waves are calling me home, Home to you. The pounding sea is calling me home, Home to you.» Following the tragic passing of Loreena’s fiance in a boating accident many years later, the passage acquired a harrowing new relevance. While written long before the death, it’s difficult to imagine that anything else could be on Loreena’s mind when she now performs this song live. It’s a truly haunting experience, and a great song to begin with. Thank you for listening/watching.
