About Us

Big Whistle Music is a family run business based in the Ribble Valley, England.


Phil Brown (co-director) is a ‘veteran’ of the Tin Whistle’ and has been playing this accessible instrument since the age of 15. Phil is an arts graduate and accomplished multi-instrumentalist. More particularly his success as a recording artist has contributed greatly to the development of Big Whistle – Phil has cut three highly successful Whistle CD’s since 1995.  He is in great demand nationally as a workshop leader and inevitably this has lead to his market leading specialist product knowledge of the high or low whistle.  Additionally, the loyal fan base Phil has gained as a result of his groundbreaking albums underpins the reason why he is affectionately known as ‘the whistle man’.

Big Whistle Music  – with the help of Mr.Wetyer - meeting the needs of whistler’s everywhere!
