Thank you to Anais for telling me about this. I had no idea they had bagpipes in Galicia so I would never have spotted the Spanish angle. I am putting this in the diary because some of you may wish to go but I won't be going in person (I can't bear the sound of bagpipes). So please make your own arrangements and feel free to use the RSVP system and discussion boards to identify and link up with others who would like to go.
Tickets are £15 - £25 and are available from the Town Hall box office [masked] or Symp[hony Hall (The ICC) box office. You can also book on line but there is a booking fee of £2.50 http://www.thsh.co.uk/whats-on/
Here is what the Town Hall are saying on their publicity about this concert.
Two Pipers Piping is an electrifying collaboration reviving the dazzling traditional Scottish and Irish jigs, reels, rants, hornpipes and haunting ballad tunes blown, strummed and scraped in the streets, stews, taverns, theatres and ballrooms of old London.
Brilliant Galician piper and iconic Celtic folk-legend Carlos Núñez and two members of his band join international early music stars Philip Pickett & Musicians of the Globe in a riotous evening of pipes, whistles, fiddles, guitars, bandora, drums and more.
Carlos’ passion for making musical connections, from performing with Jordi Savall to guesting with The Chieftains and Mike Scott of The Waterboys, has been at the core of his incredible world-wide success and his many return visits to Glasgow’s Celtic Connections. Philip’s folk-rock exploits include years with the Albion Band and recordings with members of Fairport Convention and both Richard and Linda Thompson, as well as collaborating with Richard Thompson in an acclaimed ballad project.
