GUEST,irishenglish Folklore: Tambourine? (36) Folklore: Tambourine? 05 Oct 07

If this has been addressed on here before I apologize. I was just playing Volume 7 of The Voice Of The People series, and on the final track, The Pigeon On The Gate, a set of reels by Jim and Seamus Donaghue,recorded by Reg Hall & Michael Plunkett in 1971, the instruments are listed as tin whistle and tambourine. Only problem is that it is no question about it, some fine bodhran playing from Seamus. It's going to take me awhile to look through the whole series,but is there a reason Reg Hall calls it a tambourine? Just curious because by 1971 certainly there were some quite distinguished players of the instrument, and I can't see any reason for calling it a tambourine!
