Acadia University is an essential partner in the continuing success of the Deep Roots Music Festival.

Thanks to them, we can present concerts in world-class venues, comparable to those in large cities, right here in our rural paradise. Since our founding year, Acadia has recognized and valued the contribution our Festival artists and teachers can offer to the university student population. ‘Artists at Acadia’ is a joint initiative with Acadia, featuring Festival artists doing free seminars, on the Acadia campus. Non-students are also welcome to participate in these engaging learning opportunities at Acadia Friday afternoons of Festival weekend. 

All seminars are free, and members of the general public are welcome!
