Deep Roots Artists@Acadia with Kaia Kater
Friday September 22, 2017  2pm
Music Literary Lecture / Seminar Wheelchair Accessible

Presented by Deep Roots Music Festival
(902) 542-7668

When asked about why she incorporates elements of traditional music into her art rock repertoire, the illustrious PJ Harvey replied: “There’s so much to learn from trad. in the sense of the way music began as a form of communication; the traveling storyteller, the bard.” Modern artists have taken inspiration from many styles of traditional music, yet how do we balance the keepers of the tradition with those who seek to move it forward?

Join Kaia Kater at the KC Irving Garden Room on Friday afternoon for a seminar that explores the role young traditional musicians can play in carrying the best of our roots forward, while translating them into the language of a new generation that inspires others to continue the traditions.
