Winter Roots Roundup

Welcome to the official home of the Winter Roots Roundup for 2022.

About Winter Roots Roundup XIII

Since 2009, the Winter Roots Roundup has celebrated the best in folk, roots, and blues music in an Edmonton-based festival format produced in conjunction with the University of Alberta Sound Studies Institute and the Moses and Frances Asch Collection. Our mandate is to honour the work and philosophy of Folkways Records founder Moses Asch, whose life was shaped by an unshakeable belief in the power of “anything that is sound.”

The Roundup remains anchored by our always-fabulous Women of Folkways concert – this year featuring Dana Wylie, Maria Dunn, Linda McRae, Terry Morrison and Shawna Caspi, each of whom will choose one artist from the catalogue to highlight.

This year we are so excited that the concert will be a live performance and in person at the Parkview Community Hall.  Capacity is limited so get your tickets early.

The Northern Lights Folk Club has been operating under the Provincial Restriction Exemption Program (REP), and although the government has started easing COVID restrictions as of February 10, 2022, the Northern Lights Folk Club will still require all persons within the venue to show their Alberta vaccine QR code and a valid photo ID at point of entry and active mask wearing until further notice.
