TN162 Feb 24

Enda Kenny is keen for Trad&Now readers to know that his new album is out now.

Enda is an Irish-born songwriter who has made his home in Australia.

Through ten independent albums, his thoughtful, descriptive stories have struck a chord with festival audiences worldwide.

A string of early songwriting awards have led to a full time career as one of the best entertainers in the world of folk and acoustic music.

His songs are always memorable, often hard-hitting and spiced with plenty of humour.

Now residing near Mount Beauty in the Victorian Alps, Enda is touring extensively throughout Australia and is a regular visitor to New Zealand, UK, Ireland, Holland and Germany.

Enda is the latest Artist of The Year at Newstead Live Music Festival.

‘After the Interval” has 16 tracks including 10 new original songs and features Dave O’Neill on strings and Kate Crowley on backing vocals.

It is available from the Trad&Now shop as well as from Enda’s Website.

The Lyric book for After the Interval is free to download from the LYRICS page on his website.

The Melbourne launch of the new album will be at Lowie Live (The Lomond Hotel) on Sunday, April 21.

Pre-bookings are recommended and the trybooking link is https://www.trybooking.com/CQDNU .

The album was made in Victoria, recorded in Carisbrook and produced by MAD CD’s in Benalla.

Well known Irsih performer currently touring Australia, Eleanor McEvoy said: “On small stages to intimate audiences or large stages to festival audiences, he always holds the crowd in the palm of his hand.

“Witty and intelligent songwriting and a brilliant night’s entertainment”

Colum Sands added: “Enda is the finest Irish songwriter living overseas”.

Roy Bailey said: “Enda Kenny is one of the new generation of singers and songwriters in Australia who is attracting international attention.

“He writes of the world in Australia, of his personal journey, of his desire for peace and the conservation of our environment.

“His songs are gentle as well as hard hitting when he tackles difficult subjects.

“He commands our respect.

“As a singer who depends on writers, I am delighted to have discovered his work.

“If you get a chance, go and listen to him, for above all, you will have a stimulating and enjoyable evening’s entertainment.”
