Dirt Farmer Festival has cancelled their 2019 event, which was set to go down at Accord, NY’s Arrowhead Farm Brewery on September 6th and 7th. Following Phil Lesh cancelling his appearance to undergo a minor back surgery, festival organizers concluded that Dirt Farmer Festival could not go on as originally planned.
Instead, a pair of concerts will now be held at Woodstock, NY’s Levon Helm Studios on the same dates and feature many of the same acts originally scheduled to perform at the festival. The Midnight Ramble Band will offer up performances on both September 6th and 7th. Night one will also feature musical performance by Mercury Rev, Anders Osborne, and Birds of Chicago, while Steve Earle, Phil Cook, and Elizabeth & The Catapult will perform on the second night.
Tickets to the newly announced Levon Helm Studio concerts on September 6th and 7th go on sale this Thursday, August 29th at 12 p.m. (EST).
