It might just be bordering on impossible to keep an up-to-date, comprehensive list of Low whistle players, but I intend to try! Part of the problem is that very few people specialize in playing just the Low whistle. More often, Low whistle players are multi-instrumentalists who consider themselves to be pipers or flute players first, and just happen to play the whistle as well (an attitude I hope to help change with this website!) Once again, If you know a Low whistle player who does not appear on this list, just email me and I would be grateful and happy to add them.  

(Please note that while I realize many Low whistle makers such as Phil Hardy and Misha Somerville are excellent players in their own right, I have chosen to list them in the "makers" section and not repeat their information here)

When you hear a Low whistle at the movies, it's usually Tony. And yes, he's the one responsible for "My Heart Will Go On". Still not quite sure if we should thank him for that or not.
