Mount Baker Theatre Presents:

Carlos Núñez

Mount Baker Theatre 2015-16 Season Event

From Galicia in the northwest corner of Spain comes a surprising music with ancient Celtic roots and modern Spanish energy, a tradition that is now enjoying a celebrated renaissance. All this and more is embodied in the music and career of one of Galicia’s most revered artists, Carlos Núñez. A pennywhistle, ocarina, and flute piper, Núñez is the undisputed master of Galicia’s signature musical instrument, the gaita, or Galician bagpipes. “What the flamenco guitar is to the south, the gaita is to the north,” he explains.

Núñez is already known in Irish music thanks to his early “adoption” by the Chieftains, his close relationship with the band earning him the title of “Seventh Chieftain.” His recent work showcases his groundbreaking range and depth – the stunning list of guest artists includes Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Jackson Browne, and Sinéad O’Connor. Further collaborations with flamenco musicians, Scottish and Irish accordionists, operatic sopranos, and samba stars have established Núñez’s work as a cultural cornucopia that brings Galician music to all corners of the world.
