Sir James Galway plays "The Lord of the Rings"

YouTube - Sir James Galway plays "The Lord of the Rings": "Mr Power, the headmasterof his secondary school in Belfast, told me as a boy he played the recorder suberbly well,
and therefore flute lessonns were arranged for him with the wife of the City's music advisor.

The panny whistle is a traditional irish folk instrument which he may have played at home. The flute is also a marching band instrument used by the protestants for their Orange day parades.

He would have been called a fluter in the Belfast dialect (not a flautist)"
