Gillian Welch has been tapped to replace Sinead O'Connor at The Calgary Folk Music Festival.

Welch will perform Saturday July 28, in the timeslot left vacant by Sinead O'Connor's sudden cancellation of her North American tour.

This year's festival will take place on July 26, 27, 28 and 29 at Prince's Island Park and will feature 68 artists from 14 countries on 7 stages.

Gillian Welch, performing with long-time collaborator David Rawlings, is the epitome of folk-country simplicity. Welch is an inspiration to other songwriters, and has had her songs recorded by artists including Allison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Blind Pilot, and Jimmy Buffet.

Gillian joins the line up of artists including Chris Isaak, Randy Newman, Dan Mangan, Charles Bradley, Serena Ryder, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jeff Mangum (Neutral Milk Hotel), Iron & Wine and Beirut.
