Dublin, County Dublin
Dublin singer-songwriter Enda Reilly writes in both English and Irish, and his Irish songs can be heard regularly on RTÉ Raidio na Gaeltachta and RTÉ 1. In 2012 Enda has also had appearances on TG4 and BBC2 NI.
2012 has seen Enda perform in Paris and at the London Irish Olympic House with the poet Stephen James Smith with their Arise and Go! spoken word and song collaboration project. He has represented Ireland in Inverness at Nós Úr a minority language song competition and his song Dónal Ná Fág sung by Aoife Scott represented Ireland in Liet 2012 in Italy.
He also reaches out to younger generations through his Climate Change Songs Workshops initiative, bringing fun songs and environmental issues into schools and other groups, through Irish and English. He plays regularly with the fun-loving collective, The Lazy Band in Dublin. His next project after Arise and Go will be in the Irish language, which he’s currently recording and mixing.
Enda loves songwriting and facilitates the Stars and Wishes Ireland songwriting peer critiques with Carolyn Webb. In November this year a co-write with Christine Deady called "Follow the Water" is in the final of the Christy Hennessy Songwriting Competition.
