Galway still rocks at 70

James Galway turns 70 on December 8. He's celebrating this birthday-year by giving tons of concerts and workshops, and accepting the Life Time achievment award from the National Flute Association next week - where he hopes to break the world record for largest flute ensemble.

It was a bit off my radar since this isn't exactly classical, but Sir James will be rocking out TONIGHT with the Cuban American band Tiempo Libre at the Dakota.
