About the Author

In late August 1969 I finished work for the summer holidays. At 7.30 I put on my favourite radio programme, Folk On Friday and heard the presenter, Jim Lloyd, say "Tomorrow is the start of Whitby Folk Festival". "Whitby Folk Festival" I said to myself, "I think I'll have some of that. Why not? I'm on holiday with no plans." As soon as the programme ended I packed my rucksack complete with tent on the bottom and early next morning caught the bus to Leeds, another to Malton and finally one to Whitby. I swiftly marched up the Abbey steps, pitched my tent on the cliff top camp site and walked back into town. My first task was to visit the Chinese restaurant. Whilst waiting for my meal the lady on the table behind was just leaving and I overheard her say to her husband "Don't forget your melodeon." "Melodeon" I said to myself, "What in the world is a melodeon?"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've only been playing the tin whistle for three months and this has become my basic book. It covers a lot of simple exercises at the beginning and then goes into many popular Irish folk songs. The one thing I regret, is that I bought this book used and it didn't come with a CD with it, and therefore many of the songs that I haven't heard I find difficult to play, because I don't know what it is supposed to sound like. I also wish that this book had gotten away from the constant fingering illustrations over every note in every song. I find myself following the fingering, rather than the notes, and I am afraid that this will weaken my playing in the long run.

I don't usually learn well from instruction book. Something about a half-century's worth of the "listen or watch then figure out how to do the same thing" school of music training. But I needed to expand my skills into the tin whistle repertoire, so I thought I'd try the book route. By sheer good fortune, I came across this book. It's well-written, and the learning arc constructed in such a way as to be easily followed. I'd recommend it to anyone.
