  Jimmy MacFarlane

jmcf.jpg - 14KbI know almost nothing about Jimmy MacFarlane, except that he played fiddle, vibes and tin whistle, mostly with The Jim Macleod Band, with whom he recorded several LPs in the 1960s and 70s. On some of these records Jimmy would be given a track on which to show off his whistle skills. His choices ranged from Scottish tunes, through his own compositions, to wild displays such as The Penny Whistle Samba. Among his other talents was whistling (the human kind) and songwriting.
