All the way from the Emerald Isle, the phenomenal Irish musician, Mundy, accompanied by the talented violinist Sarah Lynch perform for the first time in Serbia.
Mundy first came to light in 1996 when, at the age of 21, he released his debut album Jelly Legs on Epic Records. The critically acclaimed album launched the career of one of Ireland’s most beloved singer-songwriters. Jelly Legs also included the song ‘To You I Bestow’ which appeared on the soundtrack to ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Baz Luhrmann and sold over 11 million copies worldwide, introducing Mundy to an international audience. Since the release of Jelly Legs in 1996, Mundy has released a further five studio albums and two live albums. His sophomore album 24 Star Hotel went multi-platinum, and songs ‘July’ and ‘Mexico’ are firm fan favourites. His version of ‘Galway Girl’ with Sharon Shannon was a number one hit along with being the most downloaded song of 2007 and 2008 in Ireland. It’s also gone on to become the eighth highest selling single in Irish chart history. Mundy has toured extensively in the US, Australia, and all over Europe, performing at prestigious venues like The Royal Albert Hall, and supporting legendary acts including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, R.E.M and Oasis. One of his career highlights was playing for Barack Obama, both on his Irish state visit and also in The White House. If you see only one act at this year’s festival, make it Mundy who will be performing in Belgrade for the first ever!
