Periodic concerts highlighting roots focused musicians in an intimate informal atmosphere. Building on Dinkytown's iconic heritage as a folk music mecca, we showcase an eclectic mix of traditional and roots musicians ranging from blues to bluegrass, folk, and Americana.

We are planning on resuming concerts in the Winter of 2022.

Until we can safely host concerts again, please support musicians who are trying to make a living without in-person events.  Here are some links to some of our favorite Roots Cellar alumni, many of whom are doing online shows.
