Celtic Wonder Carlos Nuñez Visits Somerville
By WGBH Music



Born in Galicia, Spain, Carlos Nuñez began playing the bagpipes at the age of eight. He met Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains (now celebrating 50 years as a group) when he was a teenager . He later became known as the "7th member" of the band. He travels worldwide, sharing Celtic, Berber, Flamenco and Breton music with his audiences and he has collaborated with legendary musicians like Ry Cooder, Sharon Shannon, Sinéad O'Connor and Altan. In Europe, Nuñez plays to sold out stadiums and arenas. He has toured throughout the world and continues to wow audiences with his high-spirited music.

 

Nunez included a stop at The Burren Irish Pub in Somerville, Mass., hosted by WGBH's Brian O'Donovan, as part of his first major US tour.
