    Enda Kenny is an Irish-Born songwriter who has made his home in Melbourne, Australia since the late 1980's. His thoughtful, descriptive stories of his adoptive homeland have struck a chord with festival audiences all over Australia and are always memorable and spiced with plenty of humour. Proud to sing of where he lives rather than where he left, he continues to grow his international audience with recent trips to Germany, UK, NZ and Canada.

    A couple of quotes from people of influence for you.....
     
    Enda Kenny is probably the best Irish songwriter living outside of Ireland" Colum Sands.
     
    A trawl of gems of observation seen through the eyes of a transplanted Dubliner creating his own legend in Australia.  John O'Regan, Rock 'N Reel.
     
    We'll get started at 8.00pm with a few songs from "we only have 5 good legs between us" Fairfield. If you need any more details give me a call on 0121 476 5938 or email bobcynfolk [at] aol [dot] com or go to www.bromsgrovefolkclub .co.uk
