I managed to catch most of Michael Moore´s ¨Capitalism - a love story¨ yesterday, and it made me so angry I needed a pick-me-up today.
Carlos Nuñez is probably the most famous Spanish celtic musician. He´s had a long and illustrious career and recorded a lot. This year in honor of the Jacobeo, he helped organize a free concert in the Plaza do Obradoiro in Santiago de Compostela with the Chieftains and the Galician Symphonic Orchestra. Apparently it was an unforgettable performance. He also seems like a genuinely nice guy and has such a good time playing that it´s infectious.
Nuñez collaborates often with other musicians. This is an earlier performance with the Chieftains. The first tune is Alborada de Veiga and the second is the Muiñeira Chantada (which is almost certain to be played at any festive gathering in Galicia were there are gaitas or pipes).
V and I did get to see the Chieftains in concert on St. Patrick´s Day in Chicago (The Irish are very big in Chicago) one year. They were great!
