The Deep Roots Music Festival is happy to announce its line-up for 2017. The annual festival takes place September 21st to 24th in Wolfville, Nova Scotia and surrounding area. Through partnerships with the Atlantic Presenters Association and RADARTS, and Canadian Heritage’s Canada 150 Program, the festival will bring in exciting and diverse acts such as Juno winners Alex Cuba, and The Swinging Belles, and to kick off the festival on Thursday, September 21st, Lennie Gallant with his multimedia spectacle, Searching for Abegweit. This incredibly popular show is a fitting introduction to a celebration of our roots, as our region shares the culture, language and traditions of the Mi’kmaq and Acadian people who lived here long before the Canadian confederation.
