“If it’s possible to become a pop star playing the bagpipes, Núñez could be the man.”_Los Angeles Times

“The Jimi Hendrix of bagpipe.” _BILLBOARD

“The Carlos Núñez Band, led by the charismatic Galician pipes and whistles star, was the toast of last year’s Celtic Connections, and returned this time in no less dynamic form… Individual and ensemble playing were a sheer delight big Pete Townsendish bouzouki licks, mellifluous Spanish guitar, saucy dancing fiddle, all dappled with the liquid sunshine of Núñez’s whistle, or the fiery pulse-quickening squeal of his pipes. No tricks, no safety net, just sheer bone-deep musicianship.” _The Scotsman (UK)

Carlos Núñez comes from Galicia, the Celtic region in the North West of Spain. He is considered one of the biggest artists in the international World / Celtic Music scene, having the quality of a classical music virtuoso and the charisma of a rock star. Carlos has expanded the borders of Celtic music to Flamenco, Fado, Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian or Classical music, Movie Soundtracks, Contemporary Dance… As he describes it, he plays Celtic music with Latin passion.
Carlos became honorary member of The Chieftains when he performed and toured on their album Santiago. The album is dedicated to traditional music of Galicia and Galician emigrants’ musical folklore in Latin American music. In 1997, the album earned the group the Grammy Award for Best World Music Album.
Carlos’s has released 11 albums to date, that have sold over 1 million copies and have garnered several Platinum and Gold CDs and DVDs, as well as 2 Latin Grammy nominations.
His most recent CD/DVD ,” Inter-Celtic” will be released in mid-February and features special guests
The Chieftains, Altan, Sharon Shannon, Dónal Lunny, Ry Cooder, Alan Stivell, Dan Ar Braz, Capercaillie’s Donald Shaw, and others.
