MORE Deep Roots:

The Deep Roots Music Cooperative was incorporated in 2003 by a group dedicated to developing and promoting the music scene in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley.

The Deep Roots Music Cooperative is committed to creating opportunities for Annapolis Valley artists and beyond. The Wolfville Summer Concert Series, a partnership between Deep Roots and the Town of Wolfville. runs throughout the summer, each Sunday afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00 in the Waterfront Park in Wolfville.

You can also watch concerts and sing-alongs on the Deep Roots Music Videos YouTube channel and keep up to date on Deep Roots projects through the website and the social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
