Please Notice
After almost 30 years and nearly 10,000 creations I have decided to retire so I can take time to enjoy my many other hobbies. Thanks for the long run.

p.s. In July 2020 the company that hosts my web site was hit by ransom ware and lost my files. I will slowly reload the pages since many collectors still go to my site. Plus, I use this site to post my music files and other hobby material. They are down toward the bottom of the page.

Irish whistle, penny whistle, tin whistle or what ever you wish to call it, I enjoy playing it. I have completed several projects of Irish or Celtic music. I also enjoy playing lap dulcimer and have done some recordings of my playing. Nothing professional here but maybe you would enjoy a listen. There are also arrangements for Irish whistle (or any C instrument) for sale. Below are the links.
