For Artists

Our annual Deep Roots Music Festival weekend line up includes folk, roots, blues and world music. Although we love to bring back favourite performers, in general, we try to bring in new acts every year; and when we can, we include artists who represent our founding cultures (Mi’kmaq, Acadian, British Isles, African-Nova Scotian).

For Volunteers

The Deep Roots Music Cooperative welcomes your help in ensuring the success of the Deep Roots Music Festival, usually happening the last weekend in September.  Other events throughout the year need volunteer involvement too.

For Acadia Students

Deep Roots recognizes that September is an exciting and busy time in the local community as Acadia students return to Wolfville, or arrive in town for their first time. Participating in Festival events is one great way for students to immerse themselves in the vibrant local culture and get to know their neighbouring community while they are at it .

The Deep Roots Music Festival uses various venues on the Acadia campus, and offers a range of activities that would appeal to music-learners and music-lovers!
