Although two of the original members (Rick Perkins and Karen Arruda) are no longer with the band, the music continues with Annie Kramer on guitar and vocals, and Jerry Hamlin on percussion. A Wild Roots concert includes plenty of opportunities for kids and adults to join in the fun of singing, playing, and moving to the music.

There will also be an opportunity to sign up children 0-5 for the Dolly Imagination Library, gifting a child with a book once per month for an entire year.
