Roots music can refer to several styles or genres in music, but to us it’s music that is firmly rooted in a place of honest expression and emotion. It’s music that travels, shares, and connects, while honouring the past and bravely moving forward. It’s our mission to bring together a wide range of artists and people who share this vision for a weekend of great live music. The Roots North Music festival is a 2 day celebration taking place on April 22nd and 23rd, in downtown Orillia, with the main event taking place at The OCC. Your pass also gives you FREE cover during performances taking place at The Brownstone (subject to capacity).
