Fer­dia adds U-12 Feis Ceoil solo ti­tle to col­lec­tion

Bray People - - FACE TO FACE -

TEN-YEAR-OLD Fer­dia Walsh-Peelo is a name to look out for in the fu­ture as the young­ster con­tin­ues to take the world of mu­sic by storm.

His most re­cent ac­co­lade saw him pick up the Un­der-12 Boys Vo­cal Solo at the Feis Ceoil in the RDS, Dublin last week.

He’s a stu­dent of Toni Walsh in Ash­ford and is a fourth class pupil at­tend­ing Wick­low Ed­u­cate To­gether Na­tional School.

Fer­dia sang two songs to win his well de­served prize. His test piece was ‘Magic Car­pet’ by Clif­ford Caw­ley and the choice piece was ‘Sandy and Andy’ by Have­lock Nel­son.

His over­all per­for­mance earned him an ex­cep­tion­ally high mark of 94 from the pro­fes­sor of Vo­cal Stud­ies from Lon­don’s Guild­hall.

Al­ready a star, 10-year-old Fer­dia Walsh-Peelo.
