Album Review
Reviewed 2002-10-08
Irish singer Niamh Parsons (pronounced “Neeve”) has a warm, rich voice and an expressive style. This is a collection of trad. folk songs and more modern material (by writers including Mark Knopfler). It’s all very quiet and low key, many tracks are a capella, a few are instrumentals.

1. Slow a capella folk song. Pretty
*2. Sweet, delicate duet w/guitars.
3. Two reels for guitar & mandolin.
*4. A slow sad song filled with nostalgia.
5. Another slow a capella track. Traditionally Celtic.
*6. Light folk song w/nice accordion/guitar.
7. Slow, tragic war song. Vox/guitar/harmonica.
8. A capella track. Slow & elegant.
*9. Nice instrumental jigs – sweet guitar harmony.
10. A capella voices, sad tale of a lover killed in battle.
11. More contemporary folk sound. Slow, low key, pretty.
12. Sweet melody. Vox & accordion.
13. Sad ballad for vox & guitar.
14. Anti-war song. Sweet vocal harmonies. Quiet & slow.
