Sir James Galway, OBE (born 8 December 1939) is an Irish virtuoso flute player from Belfast, nicknamed "The Man With the Golden Flute". Following in the footsteps of Jean-Pierre Rampal, he became one of the first flute players to establish an international career as a soloist. The Chieftains are a traditional Irish band formed in Dublin in November 1962, by Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy. The band had their first rehearsals at Moloney's house, with Tubridy, Martin Fay and David Fallon. Their sound, which is almost entirely instrumental and largely built around uilleann pipes, has become synonymous with traditional Irish music and they are regarded as having helped popularise Irish music across the world. Galway and The Chieftains have collaborated on two albums together, In Ireland (1987) and Over the Sea to Skye: The CelticConnection (1990). In Ireland was also released as a DVD.
