As a trio, Little Roots performs interactive youthful interpretations of old-time and folk traditionals, as well as originals. Various combinations of fiddle, banjo, guitar, and ukulele accompany harmony singing, Appalachian folk arts, and story telling. Annie and Maggie also run weekly Little Roots music classes for children 3months to 5 years old in Florence and Easthampton, MA.
Little Roots' third album, Wildwood, to be released September 16th, 2018, was self produced and recorded by Annie's husband Garth Stevenson at their home studio in Westhampton, MA. Annie, Maggie, and Mia, bring a youthful yet traditional sound to tried-and-true old-time tunes and American folk songs.
