Enda Kenny is an Irish-born singer and songwriter living in Melbourne. His thoughtful, descriptive stories of his adoptive land have struck a chord with festival audiences all over Australia and his live performances are always memorable and spiced with plenty of humour. Having spent a decade or so juggling performance with a career working in public housing, Enda returned to full time music in 2013 and since the launch of Heart Tattoo in November has been busy touring to New Zealand, Adelaide, Perth and all around the east coast.

Well-known for his musical alliance with Wollongong fiddler Lindsay Martin, Enda and Lindsay have made seven albums together despite living over 700km apart as the kookaburra flies and they have toured extensively in UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Hong Kong. In concert, they are always engaging and their rapport with each audience clearly stems from a love of playing music together.


Ecopella is an environmental choir that sings about the beauty of our world and the struggle to protect it from exploitation and destruction. Founded in 1998 by musical director Miguel Heatwole, the choir serves the environment movement by providing activists and audiences with the opportunity of enjoying a very high standard of a cappella singing. The strong environmental message of Ecopella's Save-The-World Music encourages positive change in people's thoughts and actions and offers support to a wide variety of green organisations.


Ecopella originated in Sydney and we now have branches in the Blue Mountains, Illawarra, Southern Highlands, Canberra and the Central Coast as well. We have over 390 performances to our credit, embracing a wide range of events: benefit concerts, protests, campaign launches, community gatherings and folk festivals.


You might expect a choir that sings about the environment to be a gloomy ensemble, but Ecopella's sense of fun fills each performance with positive and satirical messages. Even when the mood becomes serious the beauty and solemnity of the music is uplifting. Many of the pieces are original compositions and most of the arrangements are ours also. Stylistically our influences include folk, classical, popular songs, and occasionally jazz.
