Roots Cellar Music Series

The Roots Cellar: UBC's concert series focusing on roots music at an affordable price:  The focus of the series is to highlight roots-focused musicians in an intimate informal atmosphere.  We chose roots music because of the historic and iconic connection with Dinkytown's heritage as a folk-music mecca.  We are showcasing an eclectic mix of traditional and roots musicians ranging from blues to bluegrass, folk and Americana.
