Melodeon and tin whistle
This is my music website.
I play traditional music (mostly English, but also Irish, Scottish etc) on melodeons and tin whistles.
I play for folk dances (ceilidhs, country dances, barn dances) and in the band Greenman Rising.
I have been playing the melodeon for nearly 30 years, and the tin whistle from about the age of seven. I’ve played and danced with several local morris and rapper teams, sat in hundreds of music sessions, on scores of festival stages and played for more ceilidhs than I could possibly count.
I am based in Coventry, in the English Midlands.
The tin whistle is a simple instrument and you’d think that how to place it in the mouth and blow it would be simple and obvious. That’s until I read some rather strange advice from anonymous people on the web.
