In the Palau de la Música, as part of the programme for the 16th Mil·lenni Festival, the well-known bag-pipe player will present his latest release in which he heralds a return to the roots of Celtic music
Galician pipe player Carlos Núñez returns to the Banc Sabadell Mil·lenni Festival for the third year running. Following his successful concert in the Santa Maria del Pi Basilica in 2012 and the celebration of 15 years of the festival in the Palau de la Música, Núñez now returns to the same stage on Tuesday the 30th of December to present his latest release, Inter-Celtic, in which he explores the numerous perspectives from which it is possible to interpret Celtic music, including more traditional Irish and Galician sounds to nuances more often associated with Brittany and even including influences from Latin and North America.
The record also boasts appearances by other notable genre musicians such as The Chieftains, Alan Stivell, Dan Ar Braz and Donal Shaw, of Capercaille, as well as other internationally-renowned artists the likes of Ry Cooder and a selection of Brazilian “son” players.
The repertoire for the new show includes some previous hits such as the soundtrack for the Vuelta de España (Tour of Spain) cycle race and the participation of some of the creators of Riverdance.
Carlos Núñez began his career at a very early age. At just 12 years old he featured in a concert with the Lorient Symphony Orchestra and shortly afterwards was invited to accompany The Chieftains on tour. This year he has performed in more than thirty cities throughout North America as well as the Olympia in Paris and London’s Royal Albert Hall.
