Oil for the Chain, by Shannon Heaton - Book & CD

Regular price $14.99 Sale

Not just an ordinary tune book - each set of tunes is preceded by Shannon's playing tips, encouragement and stories. A great primer for those about to play in sessions and a great source of inspiration for the seasoned player.

It was Shannon Heaton that first inspired Whistle & Drum's founder, Blayne Chastain to take up the tin whistle and Irish flute and after checking out Oil for the Chain, you'll appreciate why (sound sample below). This book is one that Blayne always keeps in his bag (along with June McCormack's Fliúit) as a continued source of inspiration.
