Thread Name: a good whistlers album
Subject: RE: a good whistlers album
I'd like to see Leadfingers do a double roll on f sharp playing a G tune on a B flat whistle. Always prepared to be impressed...

You don't say what style you want to play. I'm assuming post- seventies Irish.

What do you want out of the recordings? Technique: get the Bergin Mary, Michael McGoldrick, Wille Clancy, and stuff like that. Tunes: almost anything, though you might find it "interesting" to try to arrange some fiddle tunes for whistle. Treatments: the usual suspects, Planxty and so on.

Maybe when bandwidths get a bit bigger, we can arrange internet sessions for those out on a limb.
