A Mummer’s Dance Through Ireland on vinyl

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day March 17th!


As spring prepares to spread its welcome wings and bid farewell to winter, the celebrated St. Patrick’s Day waits right around the corner. To mark that beloved cultural tradition, associated with all things green and Irish, Loreena is delighted to announce the release of her latest vinyl LP, A Mummers’ Dance Through Ireland.

The album features 10 songs with Irish themes newly selected by Loreena from across her catalogue, including the U.S. hit single remix of “The Mummers’ Dance”, plus a number of other fan favourites like “Bonny Portmore”, “Stolen Child” and “The Old Ways”.

And fittingly, the 140-gram vinyl recording, pressed at Record Industry in the Netherlands, is – you guessed it – transparent green.

A Mummers’ Dance Through Ireland is available in the U.S. exclusively through Barnes & Noble. In Canada, it’s available exclusively through Sunrise Records. It will also be sold in select retail outlets in Europe.

Vinyl lovers and Loreena fans may whole heartedly welcome this new addition to her vinyl catalogue. As The New York Times reported in a June 2023 story, vinyl is now the music industry’s most popular physical format “with fans choosing it for collectability, sound quality or simply the tactile experience of music in an age of digital ephemerality”.

And then of course, there’s the enduring appeal of Irish music which the album elevates through Loreena’s inimitable touch. As she herself reminds us, “I didn’t choose to follow Irish music. I didn’t choose my direction or my destination, it chose me.”
