The Penny Whistle was so called because street urchins and itinerant performers used to get a penny for playing to passers by. One of these itinerants named Whistling Billy made a successful living by playing and dancing at the same time. He performed in pubs, in the fields at harvest time and even at convert rooms and would regularly earn 2 pounds a week - a considerable sum! He had a repertory of fifty tunes and was reckoned to be the best player of any man in town or country.
