Concert Flute | Feadóg Mhór

The term Irish Flute refers to a conical-bore, simple-system wooden flute of the type favoured by classical flautists of the early 19th century, or to a flute of modern manufacture derived from this design (often with modifications to optimize its use in Irish Traditional Music or Scottish Traditional Music). The vast majority of traditional Irish flute players use a wooden, simple-system flute.

Although it was, and is, played in every county in Ireland, the flute has a very strong heartland in the mid-western counties of Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo, with South Fermanagh, East Galway, Clare and West Limerick also having a reputation.
