The Ballinrobe Festival is back this week, with famous singer-songwriter Mundy and special guest Lisa Canny performing live at the Credit Union Pavilion at Ballinrobe Racecourse tonight.
Mundy’s first album ‘Jelly Legs’ was released in October 1996 to critical acclaim. However, it was his visceral debut single ‘To You I Bestow’ that garnered most attention after it appeared on the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo & Juliet’, this bestselling soundtrack went on to sell 11 million copies and introduced Mundy to the world.
He has since gone on to release a further eight albums creating his own flavour of acoustic, folk-based pop/rock.
His album Raining Down Arrows went straight in to the Irish Charts at number 1, he has enjoyed gold and multi-platinum record sales and has picked up a number of awards including the Meteor Music award for ‘Best Male’ and ‘Most Downloaded Song’ 2 years running for his rousing rendition of ‘Galway Girl’.
Mundy’s music has allowed him travel the world supporting some of the greats; Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, R.E.M, Oasis, White Stripes, and the Pogues to name a few.
Mundy certainly has an impressive CV but there is no sign of the Offaly man slowing down touring Ireland, UK, Europe, North America, Australia, and Asia.
Join him with special guest Lisa Canny, live and exclusive in Ballinrobe.
The show begins 8pm.
