    Seeing her at the beautiful Royal Albert Hall in London. None of my friends wanted to go so I snagged a lone seat in row 6. After a long and stressful wait in the queuing system I'm very happy!
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I saw her tonight in Bremen on the Lost Souls Tour. It was wonderful and the song Lost souls at the end of the set moved me to tears.
    There are some slightly different arrangements of older songs than she played before - the bonny swans for example has a nice second half with e-guitar and violin that differs from the album version.
    From the new album: Manx Ayre, 100 wishes, Ballad of the Fox hunter, Ages past - ages hence, spanish guitars and night plazas.
    "Two Trees" was also played, an older song rarely performed.
    And: the cello on "The old ways" is just magical

    I saw her in London last week. It was a wonderful concert! I guess the setlists were pretty similar as we got everything you mentioned. They abridged The Lady of Shalott was divine if a little too abridged!

    We had some guest musicians including a woman called Ana Alcaide on nyckleharpa. I love nyckleharpa!

    Lorenna's voice is one of the most beautiful sounds ever created by a human especially in a live environment in a purpose designed concert hall.

    I'm glad you got to see her and enjoyed it so much CC!

    Ooh I saw her last saturday in the Netherlands the show before Bremen (she mentioned heading there next).
    It was my second time seeing her live and this time she had more musicians on stage and DAMN that worked a charm. The Old Ways was spectacular in particular. The second half from Lady of Shalott up to the end was so very very strong.
    And Dante's Prayer will never not reduce me to tears.

    The Two Trees! She has so many achingly beautiful songs, I'd weep to hear that one live.
