Niamh Parsons will be performing at the Rhode Island Ceilidhe Club Cranston, on June 16 2012. Niamh has the most harmonic and melodic voice in the folk scene period. To listen to the effortless production of pure emotion in song, is indeed a pleasure. It is not often when a singer can appeal to such a broad an audience as Niamh does, I am an old Irish folk lover grounded in the days of Luke Kelly and Paddy Reilly, my daughter is an Irish session player and lover of the next generation of Irish tune players. We both marvel at the talent of Niamh Parsons. My hope is to have a few words with her after the Rhode Island appearance and regardless will review the event.
The fellow playing the guitar Graham Dunne a Dubliner whose abilities and subdued sensitivity are an awesome match to Niamhs’ singing. Rarely can it be said that the parts are truly as good as the whole, but in this case it is pleasantly so.
