Enda Kenny & Lindsay Martin + The Selkie Band
Dublin born songwriter, Enda Kenny has lived in Melbourne since 1987. Drawing on the traditions of the seanachie and yarn spinner, his songs describe stories of life, humour, nature and injustice. Enda’s gift as a performer is his ability to bring alive the individual experience in a way his audience intuitively relates to. Acclaimed as one of Australia’s finest songwriters, Enda has produced six albums since the release of Twelve Songs in 1994. All feature the masterful fiddle playing of long time collaborator Lindsay Martin.
His songs have been recorded by a growing list of local and international artists including Roy Bailey, Karen Lynne, Reel Time, Bram Taylor, Barrie Davis, Bob Eden and Markerr.
“Enda’s songs get right to the heart of the Australian experience, and accompanists don’t come any better than Lindsay Martin” Fairbridge Festival Western Australia
Lindsay Martin has been playing violin for as long as Doctor Who has been on Australian television and remembers quite well the arguments over practice and T.V. At the age of 7 Lindsay was inspired by another ABC series, "The Magic Of Music", conducted by the late great Eric Jupp and with the tremendous support from his accordion playing father, lessons began.
Since then Lindsay has developed a diversity of unique styles and flavour in his playing, which has entertained audiences around Australia, England and New Zealand.
