Tin Whistle

The tin whistle, also known as the penny whistleEnglish flageolet, Scottish penny whistle, tin flageolet, Irish whistle, Belfast Hornpipe, feadóg stáin (or simply feadóg). The Clarke London Flageolet is a simple, six-holed woodwind instrument. It is a type of fipple flute, putting it in the same class as the recorder, Native American flute, and other woodwind instruments that meet such criteria. A tin whistle player is called a tin whistler or simply a whistler. The tin whistle is closely associated with Celtic music.

The Chieftains, Solas, The Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, and most other Irish traditional and Irish traditional-inspired bands use the tin whistle regularly (or at least occasionally) in their music. Often, the bagpipers and flute players in these types of bands play a tin whistle occasionally, rather than using this instrument exclusively.
