Niamh Parsons Traditional Singer preparing for Ring of Gullion Autumn Fest

About

Come and join a masterclass in traditional song with Niamh Parsons in Forkhill as part of Ring of Gullion's Autumn Fest 2023.

Niamh Parsons has come to be known as one of the most distinctive voices in Irish music. Her voice has drawn comparisons to such venerated singers as Dolores Keane, June Tabor and Sandy Denny. The great Scottish balladeer Archie Fisher said of Niamh, 'a songstress like her comes along once or twice in a generation.'

It has been said that while Niamh may not be the most famous Irish Balladeer, many feel she's the best. Described in the Boston Herald as both emotionally haunting and tonally as clear as crystal, Niamh's albums have been 'must-have' collector's items for any lover of songs and singing. With 9 Albums to her name, Niamh has gathered a body of songs from many sources, both traditional and modern songwriters.

Join us in this Masterclass in Traditional Song led by Niamh followed by an open singing session as part of the Ring of Gullion Autumn Fest.
