Simply Informed Spring into Music

Picture of Feadog Tin Whistle in D.

Run by: Andrew H

Venue: CAVA: Newtown Community Centre, Nuneaton

Welcome to the Simply Informed Spring into Music webpage.

This page covers the initial music for the Spring into Music Session run at the Newtown Community Centre in Nuneaton (just behind the Nuneaton Bus Station).

All you need to join the group is a Tin Whistle in D and a bit of humour :-)
Tin Whistles are very cheap (around £10 or even less), currently we use the FeaDog Tin Whistle in D, available on Amazon.
Here is a video by a popular YouTube Tin Whistle player known as CutiePie, evaluating the Feadog Whistle. Feadog Whistle review by CutiePie.

You can of course move onto more expensive whistles, e.g. The Eric the Flutemaker collection, The LIR Whistle, MCNEELA Music Instruments, in fact just search on the Internet and you will find many suppliers.

If you would like to know more then please email me Andrew H at overseer@simplyinformed.uk or call into to the Community Centre and enquire at the Office.
