Niamh Parsons is one of the freshest and most powerful voices to emerge from the tradition of Irish song. Singing traditional or contemporary songs with equal assurance, she is likened to the magical Dolores Keane, as well as June Tabor and Mary Black.Traditional music has always been an integral part of Niamh's life. Her new album "Heart's Desire" is dedicated to her father who had 'a great ear for a good song'.

Produced by Dennis Cahill, this album is without doubt Niamh's best work to date. Niamh Parsons' is a truly remarkable voice: capable of soaring alone, or with accompaniment, it never fails to amaze the listener. Gifted young guitarist Graham Dunne offers the perfect foil for this voice, playing with mastery and grace.

The subtle simplicity they bring to the music, coupled with a particularly fine ear for choosing songs makes their performances memorable. Also featured in the band are Josephine Marsh on accordion, Dennis Cahill on mandolin and the harmonica playing of Mick Kinsella.
