Carlos Núñez is the undisputed master of Galicia's signature musical instrument, the gaita, or Galician bagpipes. From northern Spain's Celtic coast, Núñez connects the musical tradition of his native Galicia with that of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, and beyond.
When the Los Angeles Times suggested "if it's possible to become a pop star playing traditional music on bagpipes and recorder, Núñez could be the man", it may have been an understatement. Invited to perform with The Chieftains early in his career, few pop stars pack the energy, virtuosity, imagination, daring, and charisma into their concerts and recordings as multi-instrumentalist Carlos Núñez does. He and his band are making their first-ever tour to our west coast of Canada. Get ready to be moved!
