|Jay Turner / Cath Mundy – Original Acoustic Music
Directors: FREEDOM TRAIN choir
Musical Director, Cath, & Technical Advisor Jay: Singclusion / Mixed Beans multicultural choir
Mundy-Turner’s fifteen-year musical journey is a celebration of collaboration in singing, song-writing, performing, recording & touring internationally.
Cath Mundy & Jay Turner’s vibrant live shows feature beautiful voices, sizzling close harmonies, songs to make your spine tingle and fine instrumental work on fiddle, guitar, piano, percussion & mandolin.
As songwriters & interpreters, Cath & Jay tap into the rich vein of contemporary & traditional folk-roots music of Britain and Australia to create a sound & style that is fresh, powerful & uniquely Mundy-Turner. Their music tells stories of real people and places with affecting pathos, delightful humour and natural exuberance. (Cath is also well-known for her hilariously masterful impersonation of a Kookaburra!) It’s no wonder the duo has been called “one of the most vibrant live acts on the acoustic/folk scene”.
Mundy-Turner formed in Australia in 1995. The wife & husband team have been based in many places – Cairns; Brisbane, Cath’s birthplace; and the UK, Jay’s birthplace. Finally, with the arrival of son Joshua, the Mundy-Turner family has proudly made Logan, South-East Queensland their new home-base.
The duo has recorded six albums. Their latest offering, Ha’penny Tweedle, was honoured recently when a track was selected for Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio Four, one of Britain’s most enduring and popular national radio shows.
Mundy-Turner has toured as support to acts as diverse as The Corrs, Rolf Harris & English folk-rock legends, Fairport Convention. They have toured many countries in their own right, from New Zealand to Canada, Italy to Hong Kong, playing everything from intimate house concerts & acoustic venues to massive outdoor festivals for crowds of 20,000.
In 2009, the duo was featured in the line-up of theQ150 Shed Tour for Queensland’s 150th anniversary celebrations. They recently toured their 1-hour "Songwriters Confess" show to Brisbane City Council Libraries as part of the "Live in the Libraries" series.
