Not sure what an Irish Session is. Any idea wher I would findnone or a dulcimer festival.
P.S.

Norman:

I don't know where you live, but if you could visit an Irish session you could see and hear different whistles. You might also attend a dulcimer festival in your area. A lot of dulcimer folks also like whistles. Let's hear it for diatonic instruments.

Hole Spacing


Instruments- discuss specific whistle features, brands, tweaking, problems, questions

Assuming the same brand and type of whistle, is there a difference in the hole spacing between a D and a C?

Hello to my new whistling friends.


General penny whistle or music discussions

I have found several online sights with traditional and popular tabs. I am able to follow them, now if I can just get my brain/fingers/whistle all going the correct direction at the same time.....My wife sitting in the other room will yell out "that's such and such a song". Very gratifying!😊

I am aware of the total impracticallity of this, but.....As a total newbie I wish there was a way to try different whistles before buying. I have A green Clarke Celtic and a Generation C. So confused which High D to try next!🙄
