A man with a guitar


Enda McCabe is an experienced performer, based in the Connemara in Co. Galway, who sings a mixture of traditional Irish language songs and traditional songs in English, together with some original songs in English. The songs are linked by stories, most, but not all, of which are based on personal experience and he delivers an entertaining performance of the highest standard. A solo performer who also works with other singers and musicians from time to time, amongst whom are Tim Edey, Róisín Elsafty, Johnny Connolly, and a wonderful Japanese flute player Tomoyo Sugai to name but a few. In addition, he runs workshops on Traditional Singing, Songwriting and Accompanying Traditional Irish Music. Enda has performed in Ireland, Britain, France, Belgium , Austria and the USA.

Enda has just released an album with a fine fiddle player from Dublin, Colly Moore and the response of audiences has been most enthusiastic. Enda’s previous albums Dreams of Carrickfergus (1990) and Ceol sa Chistin (Music in the Kitchen) (2010) were widely acclaimed. He completed an M.A. in Irish Traditional Music Performance at the University of Limerick and still tours.

Andrew was the guest artist that helped make my role hassle-free, engaging with the attendees, other artists and generously participating. Performing capably and with inspiration, his song craft and sincere performances are an intimate vista of his compassion for humanity and love -Judi Smitheram, Festival Director Canterbury Folk Festival, New Zealand
