Held at the Met in Bury and organised by Phil Brown of Big Whistle Music, in conjunction with the Living Tradition and the Met, this weekend features whistles of all shape and sizes. Many of the traditional scene's big names have combined to produce some great concerts, with the whistle featuring quite prominently. Bands of the callibre of Flook, Cherish the Ladies, Dochas, the Mike McGoldrick band and the John McSherry Trio have all graced the stage here and the festival is well worth a look.
