No unnecessary movements there!


She plays the whistle, too:

Personally, I feel her playing is slightly better , if that is possible, when she wears her Supergirl T-shirt.
Would you agree?

She's an awesome player but I find her selection of jigs even more impressive. I don't know if she selected them herself but they're some of la creme de la creme jigs in my opinion.

Reviving this old thread to share a couple of other videos: http://comhaltas.ie/..._breda_shannon/ (recorded in 2005 when she was no more than 13 years old but not posted by Comhaltas until 2010) and http://comhaltas.ie/...ssica_zieggler/ (recorded this year).

Looks like she's still playing, and still very good: https://www.youtube....h?v=ujMM7MvYvaM .  There are some other new videos but this is the only solo one I could find - but here's one where she's playing in a session at her own wedding: http://www.irishexam...ing-805971.html
