The website of the mag of the same name – “the essential worldwide roots music guide”.
The same half of the Goose as went to Cecil Sharp House in the mid-sixties remembers fRoots when it was a little mag called Southern Rag. In fact she bought the very first issue, probably in Exeter.Where is it now? Sadly, unable to find a home for her vast collection of Southern Rags/Folk Roots they all went to that Great Recycling Bin in the Sky, the internet not being around at the time.
Now there’s sections of the website with folkie radio, playlists, and a forum which is useful partly for gossip (oh perish the thought) and partly for finding out about gigs which didn’t get into the magazine (don’t get us started on that ….)!
Check it out here …..
Please buy the mag and help support Ian Anderson’s brilliant work!
