Links Page

Attention Webmasters: We'd be very happy if you'd like to add The Whistle Shop to your Links Page. If you do this, please feel free to use one of the banners below. The address to our main page is

The Chiff and Fipple
THE place on the Internet to find unbiased whistle information, including a whistle-related newsletter, whistle message board and a whistle chat room. If you only visit one link from this page, make sure it's this one!

Thom's eBay Auctions - Quite often you'll find The Whistle Shop's owner (Thom Larson) selling some unique musical merchandise here...

Greg Vail's "Smooth Jazz Christmas" - Be sure to check this out! Some amazing Christmas Pennywhistle music downloads from Jazz Saxophonist Greg Vail (many are free). You'll find the Pennywhistle tunes on this page. Also be sure to check out his "Smooth Jazz Christmas" page!

Cherish The Ladies Website ~ If you're not familiar with CTL, you're in for a real treat. To say that this all-woman group is full of talent is a vast understatement. The group includes the legendary Joanie Madden on whistle and flute.

The Whistle Shop's Slow Session - Our Slow Session meets twice a month (although it is currently on hiatus...). It's designed mostly for new players that may not be up to speed for a full-paced Session. Even if you don't live close enough to join us for the Session, you'll find this page to be a good source for learning to play (it includes some free sheetmusic, as well as recordings of the tunes that we're working on). - Great site for planning your trip to Ireland.

The Irish Times

The Lord of the Dance Website ~ Info about Michael Flatley's Legendary Dance Troupe.

Mike Simpson's Tinwhistle Guide ~ This very informative whistle info site was apparently taken down. The link here is to a "mirror site" that includes most of the information.

Irish Net ~ Find just about anything Irish on the Internet from here.

MuseScore ~ Download a shareware version of a very easy to use sheetmusic writing program. This program will allow you to automatically print out sheetmusic for .mid and .abc songs that you find on the Internet. It also will transpose sheetmusic to any key with just one click (very helpful for whistle players!). This program (in conjunction with Photo Impact) was used to write all of the sheetmusic in our Tutorial.

eBay Auction Site ~ Probably the best place on the Internet to buy or sell just about anything.

Robert Stemmons The Whistler ~ Official Website of "The Whistler" (mouth whistling). Includes a large section on the art of melodic mouth whistling.

Solas ~ Very nicely done website about the super-group Solas.

Terry McGee ~ An excellent info site for wooden flute (and other wooden instruments) care. Terry McGee is a flute maker in Australia - his site is a must if you own a wooden instrument.

SETI At Home ~ A very exciting project by SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence). Hundreds of thousands of people like you and me are using their PC's in this search for life on other planets. You download a block of radio telescope information from Seti's site, then your computer processes it whenever your screensaver comes on. When this block of information has been processed, you send it back to SETI and get a new block to process. You might be the one that finds ET! You can download the "Screensaver" program at
