Ships on: June 26, 2024

Loreena McKennitt's own Quinlan Road record label continues to celebrate her 30th anniversary as a recording artist with the release on vinyl for the first time of her 1987 seasonal sophomore recording To Drive The Cold Winter Away. Mastered for vinyl by Jeff Wolpert, To Drive The Cold Winter Away will be available from October 9th in a global limited edition of just 5,000 copies pressed on 180g vinyl at the Record Industry plant in the Netherlands. To Drive The Cold Winter Away, a collection of traditional and lesser-known winter and Christmas carols, was recorded in 1987 on location in Ireland at a Benedictine monastery and the The Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig and in Canada at The Church Of Our Lady in Guelph, Ontario. A successful self-managed maverick since her early days busking on the streets of Toronto, McKennitt's eclectic Celtic blend of pop, folk and world music has sold over 14 million albums worldwide. Her recordings have achieved gold, platinum and multi-platinum status in 15 countries on four continents. She has twice been nominated for a Grammy Award and has won two Junos, as well as a Billboard International Achievement Award.
