Thread Name: Review: Niamh Parsons
Subject: RE: Review: Niamh Parsons
Niamh is indeed a beautiful singer with a wondrous voice, but I have a bee in my bonnet about the way she altered the melody of Mickey McConnell's song, "The Tinkerman's Daughter" , and now, a thousand Niamh wannabees sing the song the same way.
If you are reading this, Niamh, the bit I am referring to is the end of the second line on each alternate verse, ie " ....borders his land...."
Why, oh why, did you not follow Mickey's melody, instead of "simplifying" it ?
