Niamh Parsons offering singing lessons via Skype

Ellen McIsaac, founder of the Ottawa Celtic Choir, has sent this interesting opportunity for those who wish to sing in Irish:

Niamh Parsons, formerly lead singer with Arcady (Irish band, not the Canadian one) and Loose Connections, is a traditional singer based in, Dublin, Ireland, is offering traditional Irish singing lessons via Skype.

Her repertoire includes the big ballads of the English language tradition in Ireland, and she has won numerous accolades for her singing. She has been a dear friend of mine for 15
years, and is the singer on whom I modelled my own approach to
traditional singing.

She teaches both seasoned singers and total beginners, and is an incredibly warm and approachable teacher. Interested parties can direct their inquiries to Niamh on facebook, or to me at ellen at laughingbrook dot ca, and I will forward on their messages to Niamh.
