The Deep Roots Board of Directors, working closely with the Festival Committee and community stakeholders, have reluctantly decided to cancel the 17th annual Deep Roots Music Festival, scheduled for September 2020.
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.

We are living through difficult times. The Deep Roots Music Cooperative board members have watched patiently as most of the major events in Nova Scotia have cancelled for this year. Leaders in the music industry are advising that it may be September 2021 before we can once again gather in groups to sing, dance and enjoy music together. Therefore, the Deep Roots Board of Directors is reluctantly announcing the cancellation of our 17th annual festival, scheduled for this coming September. We know that this will be sad (but probably not unexpected) news for our Deep Roots Community. We want to assure you that we will be back presenting the music you love in September 2021. It is a difficult time for those who work in the arts and we encourage everyone to support artists, by buying their music and merchandise when available, by following them on social media, and by streaming their performances.
