This year marks the 15th anniversary of The Wilders, an acoustic quartet whose roots are in old time and bluegrass music, but whose sound delivers a more contemporary urgency. In this video performance from Illinois Public Media's Live and Local, Betse Ellis, Phil Wade, Ike Sheldon and Nate Gawron play their original tune “She Says I Say."

Live and Local is heard weekdays from noon to 1 pm on WILL FM 90.9. Kevin keeps you informed about local music performances by performers both local and national. The program includes interviews with the artists, as well as educators, students, administrators and audience members. You'll hear features on the many performing groups throughout our listening area, a daily calendar of music events, and (of course!) lots of music.
