Deep Roots, Many Voices is a project by the Blue Ridge Music Center exploring diversity and inclusion in roots-based music.
The project includes video discussions, a virtual symposium, and associated concerts in our summer concert series.
In the video discussions, we pair two musicians in each episode to talk about issues related to race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, how these issues have been part of their personal stories, and the importance of celebrating diversity in the music world.
These discussions highlight contributions to American roots-based music from the many voices that make up our nation, and give us hope for a rich and diverse musical future.
The discussions are moderated by Blue Ridge Music Center Associate Program Director Marianne Kovatch.
