Deep Roots Music Cooperative proudly presents an exciting double-bill with Joel Plaskett and David Myles !

Posted on: April 8, 2014

For a fourth year, the Deep Roots Music Coop collaborates with the Annapolis Valley Apple Blossom Festival to present a major concert on 'Apple Blossom Saturday.' This year, on May 31, Deep Roots presents two of Eastern Canada's most beloved Artists, Joel Plaskett and David Myles, coming together for one memorable double-bill.

Canada has produced some of the world's most enduring songwriters and Joel Plaskett is hailed as one of the best. With countless awards to his credit, thousands of tour dates, and numerous recording and producing projects under his belt, Plaskett remains one of the most innovative and prolific artists on the scene today. His engaging and high energy performances are already legendary.

Joel has been very busy since last year's launch of his studio, New Scotland Yard, producing for an impressive list of Artists and beginning work on his own next recording. His Wolfville performance will be one of his rare live appearance so far in 2014.

And what a year this has been for David Myles! Somewhere on the spectrum between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake, David Myles has truly forged his own path by embracing modern and vintage pop, folk and soul music. His accomplishments have not gone unnoticed. Winner of a Juno award for 'Inner Ninja', his hugely successful collaboration with rap artist Classified, Myles is also a multiple East Coast Music Awards winner and last year's ECMA gala's gracious host. The man with the suit is as cool as they come!

Joel Plaskett and David Myles in a double concert? We think it's a perfect match!

Wolfville's Deep Roots Music Festival is ostensibly an event that celebrates the sounds of folk, both traditional and contemporary, in all its varied forms.

But downtown passersby on Saturday might have been quicker to think of R&B legends Martha and the Vandellas' immortal Dancing in the Street as the sun-bathed day wore on.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend, the festival treated the public to rhythmic drums on Main Street in the morning, a colourful costume and giant puppet parade shaking a leg through the town's core at lunchtime and a Turko-Balkan Folkdance session with Oro! Orchestra taking place outside the Wolfville Farmers' Market.
