In late June of this year, post-psychedelic blues duo Digging Roots released their video for their song “AK-47.” The video is their stance on the seemingly ever increasing gun violence across the world. It takes aim at oppression, hate and violence to show that love is indeed stronger. The two are also in the midst of a tour across Canada and have a few more dates coming up:
August 4th – Montreal First Peoples Festival, Montreal, QC
August 5th – 7th – Edmonton Folk Festival, Edmonton, AB
August 10th – TBA, Winnipeg, MB
August 19th – 21st – Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, Salmon Arm, BC

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
