AllMusic Review by

Recorded at German radio station SWR1 during Loreena McKennitt's 2010 promotional tour for The Wind That Shakes the Barley, Troubadours on the Rhine: A Trio Performance captures the Canadian harpist/vocalist at her most intimate. Backed by Brian Hughes (guitar) and Caroline Lavelle (cello), McKennitt's hourlong set draws from her entire career, offering up key songs from The Wind That Shakes the Barley as well as longtime fan favorites like "Bonny Portmore" and the epic "Lady of Shalott," both of which appeared on her landmark 1991 LP, The Visit.
