A regular performer at some of Australia’s best-known festivals including Port Fairy Folk Festival, Woodfork Folk Festival and the National Folk Festival, Enda Kenny 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. Live, he is regularly accompanied by some of Australia’s leading instrumentalists.
Enda has collaborated for over 20 years with acclaimed Wollongong-based fiddler Lindsay Martin and more recently, multi-instrumentalist Dave O’Neill who was a long-term member of Eric Bogle’s band. Together, Enda and Lindsay have toured the UK, Ireland, Hong Kong and New Zealand, with Enda returning solo in recent years to England, Ireland and Canada where he will again spend the 2015 Northern summer.
At Humph Hall, Enda will be performing with Dave O'Neill.

"I can't tell you how much I enjoyed Enda Kenny's gigs when I worked with him in Australia. His songs are witty and insightful. On smaller stages to intimate audiences or large stages to festival audiences, he always holds the crowd in the palm of his hand. A brilliant night's entertainment" - Eleanor McEvoy
