Man With the Golden Flute: Sir James, a Celtic Minstrel
Considered to be the most televised and recorded classical artist performing today, James Galway, to commemorate his 70th birthday, has shared with us his experiences as a very young child in a poor working-class neighborhood to his current world-renowned reputation. Not just a must read for all flute players, but also for music fans of all genres, Sir James details his difficult beginnings and his rise to super star, crossing all musical boundaries. Classical music lovers will find his tales of collaboration with the pillars in the field such as the London Philharmonic, the Berlin Philharmonic and more, very charming and
entertaining. Popular music fans will be amazed at his diversity, as he tells of working with the Chieftains and Pink Floyd.
