New Album Release - 'Kind Providence'

Posted on June 8, 2016 at 8:30 0 Comments

Reviews: Bold brush strokes distinguish this latest recording from Dublin singer Niamh Parsons and regular guitar accompanist Graham Dunne.  Her earthy vocals are shot through with a smoky undertow that captures the darker corners of her songbook. And that songbook has a few treasures lurking within.

Singing Niamh, with my twiddlybits, or whatever the word was you used to describe ornamentation that weekend!

If I might toss in an opinion on the Sean Nós discussion, "Sean Nós" is singing Irish language songs in the sean nos style.  "Sean nos style," applicable for other languages, means lots of improvised ornamentation, and a nearly complete disregard for rhythm.  Wherever the singer and the song are taking each other is just fine - speed up or slow down, hold a note or chop it off, as the spirit moves.  I don't have an exact source for this, just accumulated listening to Irish trad and a few conversations with Sean Nós singers over the years.
