Champion of the Irish Flute

In a previous post I stated that this year I've been listening to a lot Irish melodies. Well, this morning I heard a FANTASTIC Irish flute player named Michael King.

He does a few reels in this video, and watch the accompanying guitarist. He forms some really good chords.
Oh and the title isn't a joke. Michael King is a real deal champion on Irish Flute. Rock on! Or Folk On rather.

In this video do the first few notes of the reel sound like "Colors of the Wind" from Pocahontas?

HERE! Michael King...Playin Da Flute
