Oh how true about Vin!
One of his early albums was called "The Young Tin-Whistle Pest"
Paul McCartmey plays ukelele ( I think he probably caught the 'bug' from George Harrison who was (apparently) a first class player
Though it doesn't happen often (if ever, nowadays) but Billy Connolly is a handy banjo picker (always was but his 'wee sweary' act took over)
And........ anyone who has ever watched my old buddy Leadfungus play banjo & guitar can only be 'gobsmacked' by the superb and sensitive whistle player that HE is
