Roots Run Wild is the eclectic trio of singer-songwriters Katie Lee and Kelly Ann Fernandes, and the mysterious and elusive Drummer Guy. Full of musical surprises, RRW strikes the perfect balance between sweetness and ferocity with their blend of unique instrumentation, robust styling, and powerful vocals.


RRW entertains and delights with intricate harmonies and a focus on spreading good vibes. Katie Lee on baritone uke & vocals, Kelly Ann Fernandes on mandolin/guitar/vocals, and DG on percussion. 

RRW is bringing brand new music to the scene in 2022 - catch us around town, see schedule below.
