Dermot Kennedy has stepped in to perform at Barn on the Farm following Sam Fender’s cancellation

Dermot Kennedy has stepped in to perform at Barn on the Farm following Sam Fender’s cancellation due to illness.

Flying in from Spain, the Dublin singer/songwriter will perform on Saturday 6th July, taking a place at the top of the bill alongside Maggie Rogers and Lewis Capaldi.

Organiser Josh Sanger says: “We really wanted to make a splash with our 10th Birthday Party so it was very disappointing but totally understandable when Sam had to cancel.

“Dermot was not only our audience’s first choice to replace Sam, he was ours too. Our social media went crazy for him. So, it is fantastic that Dermot is willing to change his tight schedule and step into the breach at such short notice.

“It is testament to him as a person and performer that he is up for this. I am confident the Barn on the Farm crowd will show their appreciation with a big welcome on the night.”

Dermot’s debut album, ‘Without Fear,’ is due to be released on 27th September.
