About Enda Kenny
For over three decades, Dublin-born Enda Kenny has delighted festival audiences across Australia and toured internationally to a dozen countries. His annual tours to UK and Ireland have established a reputation as a cracking entertainer with a razor wit and a swag of songs you’ll want to join in with.
Twice winner of the Port Fairy Festival Song Writing Award, he has been described by Colum Sands as “the finest Irish songwriter living overseas” and by the Sydney Morning Herald as “Australia’s best songwriter”. His second album Baker’s Dozen was SMH album of the week and Here & There was the Folk Alliance Australia Album of the Year.
Enda moved to the Victorian Alps in 2021 and is back on the road full time with music. He starts a three-month European tour in Germany in July and is featured throughout the UK festival summer until late September. With eight independent albums including the timeless Heart Tattoo, Enda is back in NSW through February and March with shows in Sydney, Canberra, Woy Woy and Cobargo Folk Festival before a welcome return to New Zealand for eight concerts in March/April. http://endakenny.com.au/
