Galician multi-instrumentalist Carlos Núñez is probably the world’s most famous player of the Gaita, traditional Galician bagpipes, and one of the most requested artists by our festivalgoers.

Born in Vigo in 1971, he is steeped in the rich celtic culture of the north-west of Spain. That celtic influence is clear in his collaborations with The Chieftains and Sinead O’Connor among others as well as in his most recent album Inter Celtic.
