Master Galician piper Carlos Núñez will return to Celtic Connections 2015 on Wed 21 January with a brand new commission titled Carlos Núñez ‘The Atlantic Corridor’, in association with the Gaelic college Sabhal Mor Ostaig on Skye. Carlos Núñez was inspired to visit following “the distinct possibility that the bagpipe arrived to Scotland by way of an Atlantic corridor, and that its closest relation is the Spanish gaita” (Hugh Cheape).
Together with special guests from Scotland and South America Núñez and his band aim to once again reflect Celtic music’s subsequent leaps-and bounds evolution in which Núñez himself has played no small part, splicing traditional and original material from Galicia, Ireland and Brittany, along with newly created Scottish piping arrangements.
Wed 21 January, 7:30pm
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall Main Auditorium, £25 (premium seats – limited availability), £22
