Carlos Núñez – If you think Spain is just flamenco, you are about to make a most amazing discovery. From Galicia in the northwest corner of Spain comes a surprising music with ancient Celtic roots and modern Spanish energy. One of Galicia’s most revered artists and undisputed as the tradition’s greatest piper, Núñez is enormously popular throughout Europe and Latin America. He is well known in Irish music thanks to his early “adoption” by The Chieftains.

“Little Shop of Horrors” performed by Broadhollow Theatre – With its nerdy floral shop worker, the girl he loves, and a giant man eating plant, Little Shop of Horrors is everyone’s favorite boy-meets-girl, plant-eats-world love story. Filled with such memorable hit songs as “Somewhere That’s Green,” “Suddenly, Seymour,” “I’m A Dentist” and the famous title song to name a few. It’ll be a night of pure, fun. And remember, whatever you do, don’t feed the plants!
