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

Several years and three additional people later, not much has changed. Broken Whistle (don't ask about the name) was officially born at the Kelly Irish Dancers' 2013 Spring Recital. The 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 2014, our second album (Rowan Street) in 2015, and our third album (Based on a True Story) in 2018.
