MUNDY & ALDOC in concert
We’re proud to welcome two of Ireland’s finest musical exports to Nelson, with a double bill show featuring Mundy and ALDOC.
ALDOC bring urban sounds & musical soundscapes, led by charmed melodies on the flute and lit up with jazz-tinged arrangements, heavy grooves, spooky brass solos, tremolo affected electric guitars, lonely banjo lines and dramatic breakdowns. The members will be no strangers to Nelson audiences with Dubliner Alan Doherty visiting Nelson as the flutist and vocalist with Grada, Trinity Roots at Ceol Aneas. Gerry Paul has performed in Nelson with Tim O’Brien, Grada, Trinity Roots and also Mel Parsons. ALDOC have headlined the Goa Jazz Festival and Ireland’s 1916 celebrations, Celtic Connections in Scotland and they put on an “unforgettable show”.
Mundy’s long career speaks for itself. A multi- platinum selling artists who has released six studio albums over 20 years, it’s no surprise he’s even performed for Barack Obama in Ireland AND the White House. Equally adept at writing sensitive acoustic songs and upbeat crowd favourites, Mundy is known for writing ridiculously infectious songs that lodge in your cranium like squatters in a vacant house. He’s been known to team up with some pretty unbelievable talent too, including Youth, Pink Floyd, Culture Club, The Verve, The Makers and even Paul McCartney and he made Steve Earle’s song “Galway Girl” into an international hit. He’s a humourist, a raconteur and can stir a crowd into a hearty song along”.
