In 2009,
a couple of kids in a basement:
one almost knew a melody;
the other played two chords.

Nine years and three additional people later, not much has changed. Broken Whistle was officially born (don't ask about the name) at the Kelly Irish Dancers' 2013 Spring Recital. The five years since have been an incredible ride, full of amazing experiences, intense moments, and a little teenage goofiness. We released our first album (Broken Whistle) in February 2014, and our second album (Rowan Street) in January 2015.
