"Travels With Loreena McKennitt" is not only a must for every Loreena McKennitt fan, but for anyone interested in the phenomenon of "Celebrity". It focuses on the story of Niema Ash and her friendship with Loreena McKennitt, the celebrated Canadian singer, composer and harpist - and explores the impact on the friendship when Loreena rockets to stardom. In a gripping tale, which involves backstage glimpses into the music scene, into touring with a band and into the making of a celebrity, Niema tackles the issues surrounding fame in a personal, honest, well-writen account. The recent attention given to celebrities in articles, on television and in court rooms, makes this book especially relevant.

Niema Ash is an award-winning travel writer and W.B. Yeats scholar. Her first book, "Touching Tibet", with a foreword by the Dalai Lama, was chosen as "Book of the week" by the Sunday Times. In Montreal, where she was born, she met some of the most talented musicians and poets of our time, including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, John Lee Hooker, Seamus Heaney and Irving Layton, of whom she writes in her book, "Travels With My Daughter". Some of these musicians and poets became close friends - and one of the closest was Loreena McKennitt, with whom she has travelled extensively. In Montreal Niema choreographed and was the assistant director for two of Yeats' dance plays. In London, England, where she now lives, she formed the Yeats Theatre Company, and was the producer and director for two of these plays, which were also performed on BBC television.
