Enda Kenny is an Irish-born songwriter who has made his home in Australia since the late 1980’s. His thoughtful, descriptive stories of his adopted homeland have struck a chord with festival audiences here and beyond. His songs are always memorable and spiced with plenty of humour.
After a decade of juggling performance with a career in Public Housing, Enda returned to full-time music with the release of Kitchen Ballads in 2019. After the interval (COVID) he is happily back on the road.
Described by Rock and Reel as ‘a cracking live entertainer’, and by Colum Sands as ‘the finest Irish songwriter living overseas’.
Our support act for Enda is Caoimhe Lane, a young Wellington based singer and guitarist who performs contemporary and traditional acoustic folk music. After completing a music degree majoring in jazz performance at the University of Auckland, she is studying composition at the New Zealand School of Music in Wellington. She was a winner in last year’s Acoustic Routes’ Joan Prior Young Performers Award.
Caoimhe performs her own songs as well as traditional songs. In her music she seeks to explore her Celtic roots given to her by her Irish mother and bring the joy that she exudes throughout life into her songs.
