AMP Concerts presents Carlos Nunez
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 13th at 10AM
Carlos Núñez comes from Galicia, the Celtic region in North West Spain. He is considered one of the preeminent artists on the World/Celtic Music scene, with the depth of a classical music virtuoso and the charisma of a rock star. Carlos has expanded the borders of Celtic music to include Flamenco, Fado, Cuban, Mexican, Brazilian and Classical music, Movie Soundtracks, Contemporary Dance… As he describes it, he plays Celtic music with Latin passion.
Fall 2012 marked the release of Discover, his a greatest-hits, double CD collection. It includes collaborations with The Chieftains, Jackson Browne, Ry Cooder, and many more. Its popularity is the catalyst for Carlos’s long-awaited return to North America. Major touring ensued in Fall 2012 and again in summer 2013 with new line-up, featuring his brother Xurxo on percussion, Pancho Alvarez on Brazilian viola, and fiddler/step-dancer Jon Pilatzke, whom he met while with The Chieftains.
Regular touring continues in support of his latest album, Inter-Celtic (2014), showcasing music and artists, including The Chieftains and Altan from Ireland and Alan Stivell from Brittany, from the different Celtic countries and musical contributions from Scottish pipers, and Ry Cooder.
Tickets: $24-$39 Reserved Seating
