Dancing the Irish jig. by Vassantha Dancing the Irish jig. by Vassantha
Tribute to Irish music and dancing :)
I adore Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, Celtic Women and the rest, I even bought a low D whistle last month (still haven't received it T_T). Anyone have some tips to play the whistle ???

As a step dancer, I love this picture. Her outfit is reminiscent of old time step dancing dresses. I like you work here because the colors and design are so lovely. I would totally where that! Also props for shamrocks in the hair.

Thank you ^^. I got inspired by the Riverdance show for some elements and invented the rest :).

Love this picture! Ive danced for many years and love it :)

Low whistles are (Ive Heard) harder to play than regular whistles. I myself do not have a low whistle but do have a regular one in D (actually I have 3!) They are a joy to play and I always find myself being asked to play for others :) As far as playing a regular tin whistle goes, its fairly easy, especially if you have previous music experience. There are many good tutorials on youtube.
