Galician piper Anxo and his band closed out the festival on Friday night, and we knew his set was going to be explosive, energetic and a great way to get everybody warmed up for the weekend ahead, and it was.
An innovative and expansive artist he is famed for blurring the barriers between traditional and contemporary music and creating music that is full of great melodies and driving rhythms.
A real star of world music he is also one of the world’s great collaborators and has played for and with many of the finest musicians on the folk and world music scene.
