Anybody know what Andrea Corr attaches to her mic stand to hold whistles?

Don't know. Looks like some kind of tube.

hi Jill!
That thing that holds Andrea's tin whistle is actually a drum stick holder (probably a spare one from Caroline, hehe).
Seriously, it is...
I, too, uses one to hold my whistle when I'm recording in front of my computer.
It's really nice having them holders around to put yer whistle on.
And if you're in a band (like Andrea), it's even better... No need to pocket your whistle. :D

Yup, that's a standard drumstick holder available at any music shop. For larger whistles, visit your local sporting goods store and check out arrow quivers.

But you'd lose the main advantage of pocketing the whistle... it stays warm!

Andrea is so hot, you see, that her whistles warm up instantly.

She would warm my whistle instantly.

Sorry, that was uncalled-for. :P

It's not the most inappropriate cliche I can think of. :o

I use the same basic thing as a drumstick holder, but cut out the bottom and replaced it with nylon netting so the tube can breathe on both ends and help the whistles air out better. This works especially well on stage during performances when they acquire a lot of spit and condensation. :P

It helps to have a bass player in your band who is a daytime metal worker... :P
This is my holder:

I got a Vater Multi-Stick Holder, made for drumsticks, that clamps and then screws onto the mic stand. The photo shows it at a diagonal, but it's adjustable. I've used it a few times and really like it. I ordered it from my local music store and think it was around $15.

I think I'll stick with my whistling trousers - y'know, the ones with lotsa pockets on the sides and the handy zipped plectrum holder pocket too.

The only problem is trying to remember which pocket the Eb went into.

Stay hoopy,
Mike

I didn't realize that MTGuru held a little candle for Andrea... LOL. But then again I have a soft spot for Lasairfhiona, one of my favorite singers. Go figure!
