I was browsing Wikipedia, and found there was nothing on Irish Flute, so I wrote a short paragraph on it. However, I'm not qualified to write a complete article. Andrew Plett

I added a list of the players I could think of off the top of my head. It looks like some already have pages (although I haven't checked them yet)... Hopefully someone can fill in some biographical information for the players who lack it. 67.131.237.93 22:06, 20 October 2006 (UTC)William Bajzek

Some of the list is a little off: Micho Russell is a tin whistle player, not a flute player. And thought James Galway is a flute player from Ireland, he isn't an Irish flute player - he plays classical music on a Boehm flute. I would also include Cathal McConnell on the list of influential players - he was all-Ireland champion, had a lengthy recording career both as a solo artist and as a member of the Boys of the Lough, and continues to perform and record. Jim McCabe

Micho was a flute player as well. 67.131.237.93 (talk) 21:32, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Adding to wikiproject Irish music - I think the content is more start-level than stub-level, but calling it a Stub for the moment since it's just one big section - formatting should bump it up quality level.Dereksmootz (talk) 13:45, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

I've overhauled the article, splitting it into sections. I want to put something like the following in the "Terminology" section as soon as I find a reference for it:

The terms "wooden flute", "simple system flute", or simply "flute" used within the context of Irish Traditonal Music typically refer to the Irish flute. In this context, a Western concert flute is typically described as a "silver flute" or "classical flute".

I also intend to split the "Ornamentation" section out of the tin whistle article, making it into "Irish Wind Instrument Ornamentation" article that can serve for whistle, flutes and Uilleann pipes. I intend the "Playing technique" section of this article as a placeholder for that change.Dereksmootz (talk) 16:43, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
