Malky it's her mum's talent! Listen to The Mcgarrigles Christmas Album.....

Much as I like her sinplicity, I preferred more tuneful somgs

It was first time I'd seen her and she was amazing! Only known about her since September and feel really lucky to have seen her live. Can't wait till the next time :-)

Thank God she has her father's talent...

Caught this show and was blown away. It was my first Martha experience and I can't wait for another.
