12th Annual Deep Roots Music Festival
September 24-27th, 2015, Wolfville, NS
For Immediate Release – June 25, 2015
WOLFVILLE, NS – The Deep Roots Music Festival is very excited to announce its line-up for 2015. The annual festival takes place September 24th to 27th in Wolfville, Nova Scotia and surrounding area. This year a Festival Kick-off concert will be held at Acadia University Hall on September 24th featuring local/national treasures Matt Andersen and Old Man Luedecke. ‘Early Bird’ passes are available until July 10th. Your pass gets you into all main stage shows, afternoon collaborations, and access to the Festival Club as ‘home base’ for the weekend. (An additional fee includes the Thursday night Kick-off Concert.)
Tony Quinn will Emcee the Friday evening main stage at the Festival Theatre. This show boasts the stunning ‘Ariana Nasr Chante Piaf’; Ariana and Andy Flinn recently wowed the crowd at The Montreal Folk Festival on the Canal as part of an exchange program with Deep Roots Music Festival. In return, Montreal country duo, Sin and Swoon will also perform on Friday night, along with another country sensation, Jonathan Byrd and Newfoundland’s answer to Leonard Cohen, Amelia Curran.
We are thrilled that Sylvia Tyson, who has helped define Canadian Roots music, will be featured on Saturday’s main stage, September 26 along with fellow Juno winners Quique Escamilla and Catherine MacLellan. Adding a feeling of celebration to the concert are The Boxcar Boys (several members were part of the very popular Lemon Bucket Orkestra from last year’s Festival) and your host, the effervescent Ian Sherwood.
Darrin Harvey will host the Closing Concert on Sunday. He will reveal the annual Valley Arts Award recipient and introduce popular local acts The Chimney Swifts, The Hupman Brothers, Ian Janes, and more!
Stay tuned for the full festival schedule and details about our exciting programs: Deep Roots Music Camp, Artists in the Schools (Terry Kelly), Deep Roots Artist-in-Residence (Andy Stochansky), Artists@Acadia, and more!
