Mundy

Following Jellylegs, Mundy went on to release the multi platinum record 24 Star Hotel, with hit tracks ‘July’ and ‘Mexico’ becoming firm favourites. Raining Down Arrows, which hit the #1 slot in the Irish Album Charts, came next and was recorded in the musically revered city of Austin, Texas. His first live album Live and Confusion followed, recorded at a storming and sold out Vicar Stshow. Galway Girl was recorded as an encore and went on to become the best selling single and most downloaded song 2 years in a row in Ireland (2007 / 2008). His 4th studio album, Strawberry Blood, followed in 2009 and saw Mundy touring Ireland, Australia and the UK once more. Shuffle was released in 2011 and was a gorgeous ode to some of Mundy’s most favourite songwriters. It featured his versions of songs by greats like Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Paul Simon and Gillian Welch, to name a few.

Deirtear faoi Kíla, ar bunaíodh is iad fós ar scoil go deirneach sna h-ochtóidí, go bhfuil siad ar cheann des na buíonn is bisiúla agus is bísiúla in Éireann. Tá a gcruth fhéin á gcur acu ar an gceol Gaelach, cruth a bhíonn ag siar athrú le fuaimeanna ó cheolta na cruinne nó a dtuaraimí ceolmhara úra féin. ‘Ceol comhaimseartha cruinne Gaelach’ an cur síos a déantar orthu go minic mar go bhfíonn siad a bhfoinn is a n-amhráin úra Gaeilge le h-urilisi ceol dúchasachasa ar nós fidil, feadóg, píobaí, is bodhrán le djembe, congas is drummaí mar aon le mandóilín, dord-ghiotár is giotáir aibhléiseach.

Tá cúlraí ceol dúchasach, claiseacheach, is rac ag an t-ochtar ball de Kíla. 
Sé an toradh ná cumasc úr cheol de foinn fíochmhara, portanna preabacha agus rithimí corraitheacha a sháraíonn teorainneacha an cheoil Ghaelaigh. Ní h-aon eisceacht an cheirnín is úire uatha dar teideal  ‘Alive / In Ár mBeatha’ atá lán d’anamúlacht, bríomhaireacht is teaspúlacht.  Is é an triú taifead beo as naoi thaifead déag é agus seolfar é ar Lá ‘le Pádraig ar an 17ú Márta.
