This week I met well-known Irish singer Niamh Parsons. She leads a session each Tuesday at the Dame Tavern in Dublin. One of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.
She even "slagged" me within the first 10 minutes ("slagging" is a Irish form of poking fun or insulting you in a friendly sort of way).
She's also a fantastic singer. See: http://www.niamhparsons.com
