  1. On YouTube there is a newly discovered song by Kirsty called ‘Love Is Cruel’ which isn’t listed here 🙂

  2. I’ve heard of her but never had the pleasure of seeing her perform. “Fairytale Of New York” just knocked me out of my chair, and now I have a whole bunch of listening to do; all I can say is “WoW”.

  3. Hello Kirsty. I forgot to leave my name and email. I sent a comment about your song “they don’t know” being the most btiful melody and lyrical content than any song I have ever heard. the best song I have ever heard!

  4. Thoughts of Kirsty during the Christmas season the world lost a precious soul that December day in 2000. RIP Kirsty always
