Irish Singer-Songwriter Dermot Kennedy already has won the highest honours in music back home and now he has his sights set stateside. Originally slated to support Shawn Mendes on select dates of his now-cancelled Wonder Tour, Kennedy still made the most of it, busking to an audience of thousands who showed up at Trinity Bellwoods Park for the free performance. Kennedy performed a 40-minute set for the crowd,.many fans waving their Irish flags proudly.
Upon leaving the park, Kennedy was swarmed by fans every direction as he was flanked by a security guard, getting him safely to his SUV. Kennedy enjoyed a quiet night out after a hectic Press Day which saw stops at Much and Virgin Radio.
So thrilled we got to meet Kennedy who just earlier this year won Irish Song of the Year at the RTÉ Awards for “Better Days“, and now is prepping his sophomore release SONDER. He is amazingly nice, such an honour meeting this burgeoning star!
