The Middletown House Concert Series and the Mattabesset Canoe Club present an afternoon of song by acclaimed Irish folksinger Niamh Parsons. “Let me run a metaphoric game by you. If you had to describe an album and a singer as a food or drink, could you pick a menu to match any given artist? Well for me Niamh Parsons would be a full blooded Spanish Rioja, a deep rich wine, full of character, with a hint of iron behind a complex blend of experience and flavours.” Sean Laffey – Irish Music Magazine “Niamh Parsons is a fine, real-deal traditional singer, and with Graham Dunne's forward-looking accompaniment, you could call their time-melting music old Guinness in a new bottle.” Glenn Weiser – Old Town concerts review, Mar. 10.
