Dave Williams
Dave WilliamsCeardaí os cionn na coitiantachta a bhí le bheith i láthair ag an Fhéile William Kennedy
mar aoi speisialta, tá sé ar shlí na fírinne. Meastar go raibh Dave Williams ar na déantóirí píob is feadóg is fearr ar an domhain. Bhíodh rachairt mhór ar shaothar a láimhe, go háirithe ag ceoltóirí proifisiúnta ar nós Paddy Keenan agus Michael McGoldrick. In aineoinn na tarraingte a bhíodh air, fear ciúin umhal a bhí in Dave Williams nach raibh uaidh ariamh ach a chuid ceoil agus ceardaíochta.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

It was with great sadness that pipers and musicians all over the country learned of the sudden death of Dave Williams last month. A master craftsman, the much respected pipes and reedmaker was tragically killed in road accident on his way to deliver a set of pipes. But his spirit will live on when many of the pipers gather together to play their tunes on pipes made by Dave Williams at the
William Kennedy Festival this week.
