Deep Roots Music Festival

Usually every September, usually the last full weekend of that month, the Deep Roots Music Cooperative brings an awesome blend of up-and-coming, alongside tried-and-true, performers to our festival stages.  As well, the weekend includes free events for all ages. 

In 2021, because of COVID 19, we have had to shift gears, and instead of our annual festival, we brought you a weekend of five concerts in the gorgeous UNESCO Landscape of Grand-Pré. Three interlocking Nordic Kata tipis created a magical performance space on the grounds of the Grand-Pré National Historic Site.

Our format for bringing performers to appreciative audiences was different … due to circumstances beyond our control … but the concerts showcased musicians we know you enjoyed in a venue with rustic charm AND amazing ventilation!
