Marquette – The Canadian Anishinaabeg blues group Digging Roots will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, in Peterson Auditorium at Ishpeming High School. The concert is part of the Northern Michigan University International Performing Arts Series.
Digging Roots has been described as having an “almost indefinable sound…somewhere blurred between the lines of roots, rock, hip hop and blues.” The group’s 2009 album We Are won an Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Award for best blues album and a Native American Music Award for best pop album. Featuring tube-electrified acoustic guitar, lap steel guitar and male-female harmonies, Digging Roots’ performance will showcase the group’s versatility and range.
