Mundy live at Garbo’s

Going Out

One of Ireland’s favourite live performers, Mundy, is bringing his renowned show to Garbo’s in Castlebar on Saturday, March 7.
This will be Mundy’s first appearance at the Garbo’s venue and the Offaly-born singer-songwriter will be supported by local singer-songwriter Rebecca McRedmond.
In 1993, aged 18, Mundy moved to Dublin from his hometown Birr. He began busking and frequenting Dublin’s open mike circuit. After a break-up with a girlfriend he penned some of his most loved songs like ‘Gin and Tonic Sky’ and ‘To You I Bestow’ (which later featured on Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ movie soundtrack).
It was these songs that drummed up massive interest from a lot of major record labels in the UK and that’s how Mundy ended up getting signed to Sony’s Epic Records. The album ‘Jelly Legs’ was then released in October 1996 and he also signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.
Since 1996 Mundy has released eight albums showcasing his eclectic styles in music from rock, Americana, folk and indie. Six of these albums have been in the top ten in Ireland including ‘Raining Down Arrows’ which went straight in at number one.
Mundy has enjoyed gold and multi-platinum record sales in Ireland and also picked up Meteor awards for ‘Best Male’ and ‘Most Downloaded Song’ (two years running) with Steve Earle’s ‘Galway Girl’. He recorded that song live with Sharon Shannon with no plan or agenda … and the rest as they say is history. Tickets are available for his Castlebar show from Hog’s Heaven Bar and Mayo Leisure Point.
