6-Year-Old Sings Celtic Classic 'Wild Mountain Thyme'

Check out this wonderful video of a 6-year-old girl singing the Celtic classic 'Wild Mountain Thyme.'

“O the summer time has come, and the trees are sweetly bloomin'
The wild mountain thyme, grows around the bloomin' heather
Will ye go, lassie, go? And we'll all go together, to pull wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather, will ye go, lassie, go?”

What a stunning video, and what a talented little girl named Emma Sophia.

“Emma Sophia (age 6) performs the much-loved celtic folk classic, Wild Mountain Thyme, also known as Will Ye Go Lassie Go,” reads the caption of this YouTube video. “This video was filmed on the Great Blasket Island off the Dingle Peninsula in Co. Kerry, Ireland. The island is a place of incredible beauty and although deserted since 1953, it boasts a rich literary heritage of the people who once lived there. Life was incredibly hard for those who lived on the island, but they were very resilient and survived through the most difficult times in Irish history. Emma Sophia was delighted to perform this song and showcase the beauty of this island.”

As Emma Sophia sings, she can be seen wandering around the beautiful island full of such breathtaking views. With the music and the scenery, it’s a video that I could watch over and over again!

According to her YouTube page, “Irish girl Emma Sophia loves to sing, and during lockdown, creating music videos became a family activity. She quickly gained a loyal fan base and went viral in March 2020 at the age of 4 when her video of Danny Boy, filmed in West Cork, garnered millions of views across social media platforms.”

We hope that you enjoyed this video of Emma Sophia singing 'Wild Mountain Thyme' today and it was able to bring a smile to your face!
