The Sheepdogs have been added to this year’s Riverfest Elora after the opening night headliner had to cancel due to a leg injury.

Organizers said that after receiving news this week that Toronto singer Jessie Reyez was unable to perform, they called in a “huge favour.”

“It’s hard to find the right headliner for a festival under normal circumstances, let alone to find one with just over two weeks to go,” artistic director Spencer Shewen said.

“Our good friends, The Sheepdogs, are willing to help us out and jump in at the last minute.”

The Saskatoon band also performed at the festival in 2016.
