Carlos hails from Vigo, Galicia, Spain and has been playing the bagpipes since he was 8 years old. In his early teens, he was invited to play with the Festival Orchestra of the Festival Interceltique de Lorient in Brittany. He studied the recorder at the Royal Conservatory in Madrid, Spain and quickly gained stature as a young virtuoso. He met Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains and performed with the band two years later, becoming referred to as the “7th member” of the band. He appeared on their Grammy-winning Santiago, which focused on Galician music and included other artists such as Los Lobos and Linda Ronstadt. At Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh Carlos will play with his brother Xorxo Nunes and friend Itsaso Elizagoien. This is the first time we have Carlos and his friends on stage at Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh and we are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome them – tickets for the Saturday night concert in Halla na Feothanaí (17/02/18) will be available on the door on the night (€15/€10) or from the information desk at Óstán Ceann Sibéal 10am – 5pm Thurs – Sat.
