Come see Sara and Kamila at the Deep
Roots Music Festival in Wolfville,
Thanks to a substantial Canada Council for the Arts grant, supporting innovation in festival programming, we are proud to present WOMEN and their ROOTS - a unique multi-disciplinary collaboration that features Nova Scotia women whose artistic work reflect our four "founding cultures" and today�s multi-cultural mosaic. Participating in this special project are: Gaelic singer Mary Jane Lamond, African-Nova Scotian spoken word artist Shauntay Grant, Mi'kmaq ensemble We'koqma'q Qewiskwa'q, Acadian poet-dancer-actress Georgette LeBlanc and singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Sara and Kamila Nasr. Throughout the Festival, in concerts, workshops and lectures, their work will be featured both individually and collaboratively. After a series of presentations by Mary Jane Lamond, Shauntay Grant and We'koqma'q Qewiskwa'q, as part of the Artists at Acadia program, the "Women and their Roots" participants will officially open the Festival on Friday evening. On Saturday, their singing workshops and their concert at the Al Whittle Theatre are further invitations to share in the diversity of our roots and to experience a unique artistic collaboration.
