    9:00 PM Digging Roots

    digging roots, band, canada day, music, show, concert, canada 150

    With the release of their latest album project, For The Light, multi-award and JUNO winning alternative roots duo, Digging Roots, bring their nomadic wanderlust to sonic terrain. Featuring 12 original tracks that reflect a maturing sense of storytelling, husband and wife team Raven Kanatakta and ShoShona Kish trade lead vocals, continuing to fluidly compliment each other’s strengths while going from whispery intimacies, to smokey wails.

    Firmly inhabiting roots and blues, the album is an eclectic tapestry of light and dark sound with sweet harmonies and melodic accompaniments of ukulele, banjo, mellotron and of course Raven’s bombastic resonator guitar.

    Digging Roots performs with their full band at Owen Sound's Canada Day 2017.
