Overview

It's no blarney to claim that James Galway is the most sought-after flautist in the world. And the rosy-cheeked piper's renown is due as much to his broad tastes as it is to his consummate artistry. He treats Debussy, John Denver, and everything in between with the same affection and respect. A proud Irishman, Galway has made several recordings with the Chieftans, joyfully reveling in the rich folk traditions of his homeland. THE CELTIC MINSTREL is Galway's third collaboration with this band and includes such favorites as "Danny Boy" and "The Last Rose of Summer," as well as thirteen other tuneful treats from the Emerald Isle.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Sara Sytsma
James Galway's collection of Irish songs is a pleasant album, but it will appeal more to fans of his smooth style than celtic afficianados.
