clansfolk Folklore: Penny For The Guy? (41) RE: Penny For The Guy? 30 Oct 03

Most likely as said - the penny whistle is purported to have been called that as a penny (1d) was asked for to play a song by buskers (not the price of a tin whistle which always cost more than a Penny - ask Mr Clarke)

I gave a lad outside a shop the other day the penny (new penny) change I had been in the shop - he wasn't impressed!
