Haley Richardson does something pretty incredible at age 16 that many of us can't do ourselves.

Shes an Irish fiddler. And a realy good one, too. She also does all her music from memory. No sheet music for this prodigy.

It all started when she was just four and attending a concert with her mom that Kevin Burke was performing. Burke is a master Irish fiddler.

"And that was it, I fell in love with it," Haley said.

She began carrying a tiny fiddle with her everywhere and the rest ... as they say ... is history.
