From the publisher
fRoots – pronounce it “eff-roots” – is the world's leading and longest continually published magazine covering folk, roots and world music, from Anglo folk to Zanzibar pop, from the latest evolutions to the totally traditional.Earlier titled Folk Roots, it has been at the sharp end of the scene since 1979, dealing with an incredible diversity of music – the first place you'll read about new names who later go on to establish strong reputations, and often the first to highlight previously under-exposed local musics. fRoots’ readers constantly praise the magazine for changing their musical lives! It’s read by everybody of importance in the roots music business and beyond.Every issue is packed with in-depth interviews and features, huge amounts of news, reviews, columns and information on the UK and international scene. All four quarterly issues come with very sought-after, exclusive compilation albums to download, and the Spring issue always contains the definitive diary and supplement on the UK and Europe's festivals.
fRoots is also keenly activist, campaigning on numerous issues over the years and involved in live music promotion and music production at grass roots level as well as the official media partner to important festivals.“I doubt if the huge audience that now exists for world and roots music would be there if it weren't for fRoots.” (Joe Boyd)“fRoots is a definitive part of the UK music scene – the only published port of call to embrace such an eclectic range of music.” (Thomas Brooman MBE, WOMAD founder)“Incredibly stimulating.” (Robert Plant)
