Irish Whistle
by Tim Hart

Tim offers discussion and musical examples of some of the history, technique and expression related to the oldest instrument in Irish music. Bring a whistle (key D) if you have one. Handouts will be offered.

"Tim takes this Irish traditional music and pushes the edges in various ways. Personally, I think this is exactly what keeps the Irish tradition alive and keeps it dynamic."
-- Andrew Doerr, KCSB 91.9 FM, Santa Barbara
