Anyone who attended the Fleadh Cheoil in Sligo recently might remember 10-year old Cian Smith from Waterford who was there playing for the crowds.
At the Fleadh, Cian won first place in the tin whistle and uilleann pipes competitions. After listening to his amazing music, you’ll understand why he did so well and you’ll not be surprised that he did so well.
A video uploaded by Cian’s teacher, David Power, has been viewed over 1.5 million times and has been shared thousands of times on social media. Even those who are not massively into traditional music, it’s hard not to love his music!
Watch the amazing video below:
Cian Smith is ten, and he's been playing the pipes for only two years, he is incredibly talented and very hard working, with wonderfully dedicated parents. He just won the U12 uilleann pipes and tin whistle competitions today in Sligo and I'm very proud to be his teacher!
