Flutist James Galway picks his favorite Irish songs.

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, who better to recommend a few Celtic favorites than Sir James Galway. The Belfast-born musician, with over 30 million records sold, is the most recognized flutist today. After more than 45 years on the concert stage and in the recording studio, Galway maintains his beautiful, round tone and effortless breath control. Sir James is a great interpreter of Mozart, but he doesn't thrive on the classics alone. Galway grew up listening to Irish music, and for the holiday he chose a few of his favorites.
