The Return of Carlos Nunez
Maestro of the Galician bagpipes comes to North Van's Centennial Theatre (2300 Lonsdale) this Friday, September 19th at 8pm.
You may have been lucky enough to witness the first Vancouver appearance byCarlos Nunez, which was at The Rogue on Valentine's Day this year. Maybe you just have to see him again, or perhaps you need to bring along some disbelieving friends / family this time. This amazing musician is not just a supreme talent, he is an encyclopedia of traditional music - and beyond. Together with his superb band he has blazed a trail for the rich musical heritage of his land - a Celtic region in the northwest of Spain - accompanying the likes of The Chieftains and Jackson Browne along the way. Carlos plays the gaita ("the pipes as if played by a Hendrix or a Coltrane" - The Guardian), flutes, and whistles. His brother David plays percussion, he will be joined by guitar and fiddle and Scots bagpipes and who knows what else?
Tickets are available on 604-984-4484 at the special Rogue discount price of $22 (plus service charges)
