penny whistle

This may be sort of a "duh" question, but I have to ask. My church has been playing "Be Thou my Vision" for quite a while, and I thought a whistle would sound so good there. I went to my local music store and bought a $12.95 metal whistle with a plastic mouthpiece. I can play the song, but it sounds sort of like a new violin player trying to learn how to use a bow. Esp the upper registerMy question---is that because I need more practice to cover the holes better (I do play indian flute). Or is…See More

Bill Heacox replied to WWM's discussion PRESENTATION (INTRODUCTION) : in the group Mandolin Players
"Hey/ Have been playing a few years, mostly bluegrass chops. Lately am playing praise music (rhythm, fillins) in church. But I want to learn to play traditional Irish on the mando. What is a good way for me to get started here in South Carolina?"

I will post some pics this week of the mando. I love mine too....the tone is a bit high on it...I have a fender as well that has a lower tone...so I love them both depending on the songs.

Hey Bill,

Yes, you've struck it rich here with our connection. My husband, Davis Horner, and I started a celtic band locally back in the mid 90's (Kilmoulis Celtic Band ..named after an Irish Brownie!) and then transitioned into another band named Selkie Celtic Band. So far Selkie has produced two CD's and performed in the Southeast...amazingly talented band. I was lead singer, bodhran player, keyboard for quite a few years and then dropped out. You can find Selkie at: http://www.myspace.com/selkiecelticband and you may listen to some of their songs there. Take note of "Wynde in the Riggin" as the band member, David Boles, plays the whistle and Davis plays the Bodran...excellent piece! Selkie performed as the opening band for "the Battlefield Band" at the Handlebar last March. Maybe you were there? WE do have an amazingly talented Mandolin player friend, Joel McConnell, right here in Greenville. His band is called "Skeezits" and they also perform at various celtic oriented events in the Upstate. He also joins Selkie for some performances. I will get in touch with Joel and check in with him to get an okay for you to connect with him. Can you give me your phone number or email?...send it via email to me here on LiveIreland...more private that way. Also, David Boles, I just know would love to talk with you about the whistle. Also, a more detailed look at Selkie is here (keep in mind that they have two other musicians who join them for larger concerts, etc. occasionally):

Okay, that's quite a bit! Great to have you as a frien here on Live Ireland.

All the best,

Kathleen
