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 Niamh Parsons may not be the most famous Irish Balladeer, but 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. Niamh has recorded six studio albums and one live album to date. For the last 9 years, Niamh has been playing in a duet with Ennis-based Graham Dunne-there is a spiritual bond between Niamh and Graham when they perform, which draws out the essence of the songs.
” Niamh of the Golden Voice! Her lovely ornamentation breathes new life into these beautiful songs. The accompaniment is kept to a minimum in order to allow her warm, rich voice freedom of expression. I was transported! ” Andy Irvine
“One of the most beautiful and expressive voices in all of Ireland. Niamh Parsons has the ability to climb into a song, take ownership and then sing it for the listener to experience–not simply hear.”  Cindy Reich, Music journalist for Irish Music Magazine, The Living Tradition,  The Celtic Connection
