The World's Greatest Music
Celebrate the incredible career of the ‘Man with the Golden Flute’ Sir James Galway - from performing with the Berlin Philharmonic to playing with Muppets.
James Galway was born on 8 December 1939 into a poor family close to East Belfast's docks. James's father, grandfather and uncle all played the flute. His uncle began teaching James on a B flat flute - a bit bigger than a piccolo. Young James joined a marching band called the Onward and worked for two years in a piano shop, learning tuning and repairing.
