Enda Kenny is a man of contradictions.
“Simply the best folk singer-songwriter working in Australia” (Sydney Morning Herald), was born and raised in Dublin before settling in his adopted hometown of Melbourne in 1987.
His belonging to his new land is evident in songs like Language of the Land, a powerful cry for reconciliation with Australia’s Indigenous people, yet, like his birth country, Enda can seamlessly shift from the deeply poignant to the craic and entertain audiences with quirky, witty lyrics.
He has released seven acclaimed albums, most recently 2019’s self-released “Kitchen Ballads”, but Enda spent a decade juggling recording and performing with a full-time career in public housing.
Enda’s back catalogue of recorded work provides a perfect introduction to his stories of life, love and justice, but it is on stage where he truly shines.
A regular performer at some of Australia’s best-known festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodfork Folk Festival and the National Folk Festival. He is also a multi-award winner having twice taken home Port Fairy Folk Festival’s prestigious songwriting award. Enda’s 2005 album Here and There won the peer-reviewed Australian Folk Alliance’s Album of the Year award.
A true Irish storyteller, Enda’s well-crafted lyrics are backed by tunes that enrich and complete his narratives.
We haven’t had the pleasure of Enda’s company since 2014 . Not be missed
