The tin whistle is one of the World’s most popular musical instruments. It’s a wonder that it doesn’t have an identity crisis but the tin whistle is also known as the penny whistle, feadóg stáin (or simply feadóg), English flageolet, Scottish penny whistle, tin flageolet, Irish whistle and Clarke London!
Whichever way you look at it and whatever you call it, the Flageolet is a simple, six-holed woodwind instrument.
Closely associated with Celtic Music, the tin whistle is a fipple flute, putting it in the same category as the recorder, Native American flute, and other similar woodwind instruments.
A tin whistle player is traditionally called a tin whistler or simply a whistler, our experience is that you can call them anything you like…just don’t call them late for dinner!
Why is the tin whistle so popular? Well, as well as the much loved Traditional Celtic music, the tin whistle is used in many other types of music. It is not unusual to hear the tin whistle used in praise music and film soundtracks, and published scores suitable for tin whistle performance are available in both of these genres. The tin whistle also appears in “crossover” genres like world music, folk rock, folk metal and folk punk.
