Colm Broderick

Colm Broderick is an All-Ireland winning uilleann piper and is the 2020 winner of the Seán Ó Ríada Bonn Óir competition on pipes.

Taught initially by Ciarán Somers and John Tuohy, he flourished from expert tuition at workshops throughout the country. He is now in demand as a teacher and gives classes at the Scoil Samhradh Willie Clancy and further afield. He has been part of a recent publication by Na Píobairí Uilleann called ‘A new Harvest’ featuring young pipers from around the country.

He has recently been given the honour of taking possession of a set of uilleann pipes made by Leo Rowsome which belonged to the late Liam O’Flynn. Colm is tasked with playing and looking after this wonderful and historic instrument and carrying on the legacy of Liam O’Flynn’s music.
