X:2 T:The Whistler of Rosslea R:Reel C:Ed Reavy M:2/2 L:1/8 Z:Joe Reavy N:Ed was to a fair once in Rosslea and heard this whistler. He had a N:whistling range that could easily match the register N:of a fiddle or flute. And he had all the embellishments of a great N:traditional player, too. He sold fish in the market places and charmed N:his customers with choice tunes-many of his own making.
