Bagpipe fans, take note. International music sensation Carlos Núñez is coming to the Freight. Billboard Magazine has called him “the Jimi Hendrix of the bagpipe.” The Guardian compared him to Coltrane. BBC Radio described him as “one of the world’s most exciting musicians.” Technically, he plays the gaita, the signature instrument of his homeland, Galicia, in northern Spain. You might not associate the Galician bagpipes with musical stardom, but Carlos has sold over a million albums worldwide. “If it’s possible to become a pop star playing traditional music on the bagpipes and recorder,” the Los Angeles Times says, Carlos “could be the man. He is handsome and performs with kinetic flair and his playing has the presence and sense of freedom and vitality that are qualities of all exceptional musicians.”
