Low Whistle

By Phil Hardy


Sorry, Not available at this time


If you already play whistle - or if you've been looking through our Online Catalog - then you're no doubt familiar with the name Phil Hardy. Phil is the Maker of Chieftain and Kerry Whistles. A little lesser well-know (until now), were his musical talents.


From the CD insert:
After making whistles for 8 years, I thought it was time to record a CD dedicated to the Low Whistle. This CD is something a little different, gritty, and unpolished. I wanted to capture the essence of the ideas without over producing them. I hope you enjoy it.
Phil Hardy


Low Whistle CD


Phil Hardy, speaking of his Low Whistle CD:
"I think that I wanted to show the whistles doing something different and to make a CD with the whistle as the main instrument. At KWL we have our own digital studio and were looking for more whistle players to record. It's a very exciting time for us as we are expanding into different areas."


A note from Thom (at The Whistle Shop):
I tried to think of a way to "categorize" this CD as I was listing it here, but after much thought I was still unable to - the music is just too diverse to put in any one category. I find it to be a delightful CD - it not only showcases Phil's talent, but really demonstrates the marvelous melodies that a whistle is capable of producing. A very inspiring CD for whistle players of any ability level.


In addition to Chieftain and Kerry Pro whistles, Phil plays most of the other instruments on the CD also, including: Electric and String Bass, Flyde Mandola, Digeridoo, Le Harte Timber Flutes D/Eb, Martin Acoustic 6 String, Korg Keys, Percussion, BodhrÓn (Moggy 16")and Tibetan Bowls.
