too many of the same kind ?
In many sessions that I visited there was a really big group of flute and whistle players. I, as a flute by myself, get sometimes a bit worried, that my instrument is too common ? From classical flute playing in school orchestras I know this problem, that there often too many flute players, compared too strings and brass.
How is your experience with this topic ? Do you think there are somewhat disproportional many flute and whistle player ?
Do you think it is really possible, that an imbalance in the instrument distribution can be a serious problem for sessions ?
One of the reasons, I started playing around with the mandolin was definitively, to have a backup, if this “problem” gets too serious.
