Whistles – Penny- Tin- or what do you call them?

penny-whistle-my-music-community-net Whistles how should we call them?

I need some input. How do you call your Whistles?
I call mine Peter, Herbert, Mary…. no just kidding.
But you know, there are several names like: Whistle, Penny Whistle, Tin Whistle, Irish Whistle, Feadog Stain, Flageolet , Pocket Whistle, Blechfloete (german for tin whistle), High Whistle, Soprano Whistle, Low Whistle, … (if you  know other Words for this Instruments,  please let me know).

So what word do you use? or better what word should we use here in our Community?
According to Google most People use for “Penny Whistle” and “Tin Whistle”, both same much. Wikipedia uses “Tin Whistle” even if i search for “Penny Whistle

What about me?
In English i like to say Whistle, but doesn’t that normally mean that kind of whistles which aren’t instruments and just for to make one tone? See Wikipedia about Whistles

Because I saw Whistles like ours the first time in Ireland and was told there that they are Irish Instruments (which was hard to believe because most looked like toys with those colourful heads and being sold for little money), I did liked to call them Irish Whistles.
But i do know now that even if they are very common in Ireland and Irish Music, they are not (only) Irish Whistles.
One maybe could call a Waltons an irish Whistle because it’s made in Ireland maybe but all Whistles? ... continue reading

The Boys From County Clare – Great Movie about ITM Ceili Bands

the-boys-of-county-clare-movie-poster-150 Hey Music Friends, specialy the Irish Whistle players out of the Forum

Looking for something to do on this Weekend? No good TV Programm?
I have a Tip for you. Lets watch a great Music Movie together, on Youtube.

Some weeks ago i found on Youtube the whole Music MovieThe Boys from County Clare“.
If one of you dont know this Movie yet, its about Irish Ceili Bands, its played by well known Actors and its fun to watch. Even young Andrea Corr is seen in this Movie but not playing an Irish Whistle as one may expect but faking to play the Fiddle.
I was wondering about the possibility to see such a movie for free on youtube because of copyrights and specialy that i was possible to watch it on youtube gemany (many things we cannot see because of copyrights) And i am not sure if its legal to post a Movie on Youtube, but i didnt post it and it is online so its ok to watch so long as Youtube let us, isnt it?

So, my recomendation for every Whistle Player, ITM Liker and MMCN Musician for this weekend is:
Watch “The Boys from County Clare” online on Youtube, or right here. ... continue reading
