James Galway introduces the dramatised rags-to-riches story of Suffolk born musician and farm labourer Robert Clarke, who in 1843 walked to Manchester, built a successful tin whistle factory, and eventually returned in triumph to his village, buying the house of the squire who sacked him.

The DVD features renowned International tin whistle players including Bill Ochs (USA), Robert Sithole (South Africa) and Mary Bergin (Ireland). It includes more than 45 minutes of audio extras and slide shows.
