Loreena McKennitt   Breaking of the Sword   Single Cover Art   V4D1   Oct3 2017   MM
Many of us know the name Loreena McKennitt, and connect her to us as a Manitoba musician who has gone on to travel the world, sell over 14 million records, and receive multiple honours and awards.

A Member of the Order of Canada, 2004, Member of the Order of Manitoba, 2003, Recipient of the HRH Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal, 2002, and HRH Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, 2012 -- Loreena has also been appointed as Honorary Colonel with the Royal Canadian Air Force -- She now lives in Stratford Ontario.

We were so glad to have Loreena McKennitt as our guest this morning, in honour of Remembrance Day, as she has written a song called "The Breaking of the Sword", after visiting Vimy Ridge last year, and performing at the 100th anniversary concert.

Here's a look back at our conversation with Loreena, starting with her involvement with the Royal Canadian Air Force:
