Subject: RE: Whistling Gypsy - prejudice?

From what we know of Fred Weatherley, it could be pan pipes.

I was just reading James Merryweather's article about regional bagpipes in the EFDSS newsletter (Summer 2002). Very interesting ... but it reminds us that "pipes" can (and often do) mean a whole lot of things from whistles to military fifes.
