Tin Whistle


A tin whistle or sometimes called a penny whistle is a simple 6 holed flute. They were made out of tin! However, now they are also made out of brass or other metals. Most histories report these whistles originated in Ireland. Of course, they migrated to the United States with that culture and became part of the folk tunes that developed in America. The tin whistle has a clean simple sound yet can be played in intricate tunes.

Toni played the tin whistle on our CD, Firewood On Fire.
