Background Edit

"Etienne Trilogy" is a single track that consists of three songs: the instrumental "The Highlands", "Etienne", and the instrumental "Skyeboat Song".

Tori has commented that "Etienne, as a song, was more of what I was doing before I came to L.A."

"Skyeboat Song" is a 19th century Scottish folk song.[1]

Live performances Edit

"Etienne" is the only song from the trilogy that has been performed live; it debuted during the 1996 Dew Drop Inn Tour and has been performed alone by Tori on many of her tours since.[2]

A live performance of "Etienne" was included on Legs & Boots.
