Carlos Nuñez first heard Irish band The Chieftains at age thirteen, and four years later he was touring the world with them, affectionately known as the seventh member of the band.

Born in Galicia, Spain, he started playing the gaita (Spanish pipes) at the age of eight. His latest album is ‘Discover’ and features collaborations with performers from a variety of genres. Carlos considers recording with other artists to be paramount in introducing the ‘Pipes’ to an array of audiences.

Deirdre as born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and her first paid work was at the age of 10 with the BBC as an actress on "Children's Hour." She continued to perform regularly on radio and stage for the next eight years, at which point she was informed by her parents that theater was not an option and she needed "real" work.
