One Christmas, a number of years ago, I opened a present from my brother and found a
pennywhistle. Hoping to put a little space between the rest of the family and my practicing, I
went down cellar next to the warm furnace. I wondered if I could play Christmas carols on
the whistle. To my surprise, I found I could play quite a few.
