Feadóga Stáin, Mary Bergin's debut album, has been credited with establishing the tin whistle as one of the first tier among the standard instruments of Irish Traditional Music.[2][3] Members of Irish group De Dannan contributed accompaniment and the album is mostly a trio of tin whistle, Irish bouzouki and Bodhrán (Irish frame drum) .[4] This album has been cited by Joanie Madden as highly influential in the development of her own playing,[5] and is generally considered by critics and scholars as a "definitive" or milestone album.[6]
