Re: Tin Whistle Music?

Got some more for you: 1) Bran - hungarian based Irish folk band. Their first album 'Immram - Journey' is goldmine for Tin Whistle melodies. I cannot find it anywhere on the web though. I can try digitalizing my old cassette and uploading to YT but it will take a while. http://www.bran.hu/bran/en/al...

Re: Tin Whistle Music?

I used to play tin whistle while in an Irish group of XIV Century mercenaries (glaives!) My absolutely top Tin Whistle based music was a band called Bran, but I need to check on some old tapes I have in the attic. The tin whistle melodies were quite easy to learn from the tape. Another one I remembe...

Re: Dyeing an Arming doublet.

Now here's an interesting thread. You're right that if you start dyeing the linen doublet you're running a serious risk of shrinking it. Been there, done that.

Re: Azincourt 2015

Now, regarding the 'strict' rules I only found guidelines, but there is no information regarding the approval system. Or is there? How can you prepare to be admitted for certain? I need to check this for a reenactment group from Poland http://www.draby.pl , they'll be going a long way so they'd rath...

Re: Newbie saying hi, and a question!

My old group reenacting and English free company under Henry V ( http://www.draby.pl ) was mostly using falchions, long knives, arming swords and shorter swords with extra handguard. Also handaxes but less often. I don't exactly remember the sources, but one surely was 'English Longbowman 1330-1515'...

Re: Yeoman archer

Hey, I am new to the forum but I would like to add something from my personal experience of my days as a yeoman archer in a free company http://www.draby.pl .
