Hello everyone. I’m a classically trained flute player from Vermont now learning the Irish folk tunes seriously for a total of a year, give or take all the times I’ve picked it up and put it back down. Just recently I decided to get more serious about my Irish folk music and have started attending the beginner sessions at the Green Briar in Brighton, MA and playing early morning sessions with two of my friends (guitar and tenor banjo). Now I am in search of a proper Irish flute to improve my playing capabilities for such things as ornamentation and sound (since I am playing all my tunes on the classical silver C flute). Any suggestions for Irish flute makers and models are welcome! I am so excited to have stumbled across this site!
