Rarities & Old Favorites 1949-1993: Tin Whistle, Flute

Cooley's Reel played on Penny Whistle (Tin Whistle)
Cooley's Reel played on a Clare Whistle in D. This whistle has been slightly tweaked by removing the rough edges from the end of the tube that fits in the mouthpiece and blocking up the gap below the wind way. The photos were taken this morning when I was setting up to do the recording.
