A star is born
If you see a picture of Dermot Kennedy, you may think that he merely is a singer-songwriter who goes around the world attached to his guitar.
But if you listen any songs from his namesake debut album, you will understand that he is much more than that: his Dubliner’s voice is able to melt ice, and the samples and electronic bases that surround his compositions take him closer to R’n’B and hip hop than to what we call folk.
Buy here your friday’s ticket or, if you want to live the whole experience, get a full pass ticket for the festival.
Following the path of Bon Iver and James Blake, Dermot Kennedy blends the most authentic emotion with contemporary sounds and, sometimes, almost experimental sounds, without losing sight of the melodic core of his compositions. The result is as surprising as irresistible, and it’s understandable that his concerts are hanging the sold out sign more often every day.
A star is born, and we will have the chance to see his debut in Barcelona at Cruïlla 2019.
