The Deep Roots Ensemble merges classical chamber music instrumentation and techniques with American folk performance practice into a refined and cohesive style. It was formed in 2015 by Taylor Ackley and Alison Rowe with the goal of bringing this rich tradition of music making into concert halls and academic settings. Since then, they have performed extensively in the New York area, the Midwest, and the Pacific Northwest, along with giving lecture recitals, workshops, and masterclasses. Their debut album, Songs from the Bitterroot, was released in 2018 by 4Tay Records, and their next album, Hard Tellin’, is scheduled for release in late 2020.
