I looked pretty carefully but I may have missed the credentials of those criticizing the critic. Interesting. I'd googled to find actual reviews of Ms. Stirling's music, and I finally found one here. Thanks, Ms. Galvin.
I have no musical training myself, but as a single parent who managed to find a way to provide full, not half lessons for my daughter to learn to play the violin, and did everything possible to support her in getting the further education and training that qualify her today as a degreed music educator as well as a professional violinist, I was curious about the draw that Ms. Stirling seems to command when even I can see her musical ability is at a modicum. You helped me understand. She has several talents, that put together supersede the limits that highly trained musicians and dancers may not applaud. That's nice for her and wonderful for her fans. However it's just silly to fawn over her "great talent". That's like buying pretty sheets at Kmart for $20 and when one could say authentically, "they're pretty! I love them!" - which is just fine - instead, pretending that the reason you are using these sheets is because they're a precious heirloom which were hand-embroidered on 800 count Egyptian cotton.
