2017 … who do you want to see and hear? Help us plan …

2016 Deep Roots Festival News, 2016 Deep Roots News

The Deep Roots Music Cooperative has just completed another fabulous year.  Now we are planning for 2017 and we need your help.

2017 is Canada’s 150th birthday and we want to help our communities celebrate it in style. Beginning in May with our contribution to the Apple Blossom Festival then with Wolfville’s Mud Creek days, and culminating with our annual Deep Roots Music Festival in September with perhaps other events in between  we intend to have the whole Valley humming tunes from your favourite musicians.  Please tell us who you would like to see.  

If you want to let us know what you think please click on the link below and fill in the on line survey that is on our Facebook page. One lucky respondent will win a pair of tickets to our Blossom Blues event in May.

Another great Deep Roots Festival weekend goes down in the books!!

2016 Deep Roots Festival News, Uncategorized

Deep Roots Music Festival 2016 was a resounding success …  great weather, sold out shows,  and a general festive atmosphere all around town.   

Just to name a few of the many highlights … Thursday night’s collaboration between David Myles and Classified gave many a new appreciation of rap music, the Saturday late night party at the Wolfville farmers’ market was amazing, the Rise Up Singing tribute to  Ron Hines on Sunday morning, led by Lennie Gallant, was a tremendous success with a record number of attendees and about $2500 and two car loads of food raised for the food bank; and over the weekend, a number of new young Maritime bands, Port Cities, Hillsburn, and Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, were showcased … all of whom received standing ovations.  

So much talent on our stages.  So heartwarming to see and feel the way music brings people together, on all kinds of levels.  So worthwhile!!!  

Now, we turn to planning for next year …  remember, you are part of the experience and your input is always appreciated, in fact, your input is necessary to help create the festival as it evolves.
