17. Sir James Galway (b.1939)
Known as the man with golden flute, James Galway is one of the word's most recognisable classical musicians. Throughout a sparkling career playing for the Berlin Phil under Herbert Von Karajan and an equally successful solo career selling more than 30 million records, he's always kept his Irish heritage close, even recording an album with folk band The Chieftains.
