The Shires cancel Harvest Country Music Festival appearances in Enniskillen and Mayo
Country-pop duo The Shires have cancelled their performances at the Harvest Music Festival this weekend.
The pair were scheduled to perform at Westport House, Co Mayo this Saturday and Enniskillen Airport on Sunday as part of the two day event.
A spokesperson for the music festival said Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes were deeply sorry for not being able to fulfil their commitment.
A statement said: "It is with great regret we have to announce that due to illness The Shires are unable to play the shows this weekend at Harvest Festival.
"The band are so disappointed as they were looking forward to seeing all their fans in Westport and Enniskillen and performing at such a great event with so many of their UK, Irish and US musician friends."
The 2017 Harvest Country Music Festival will feature over 40 music acts, including headliners Miranda Lambert and Nathan Carter.
American star Charley Pride will also be making a special appearance.
As well as artists from USA and the UK, the festival will feature homegrown talent including Cliona Hagan, Pete Kennedy, Hurricane Highway, Ward Thomas and Jake Carter.
