Here is a basic index of all the features that have appeared in fRoots (or its earlier title Southern Rag) since it started in July 1979. They are listed alphabetically under artist surname, band name or genre (country, music style etc). The number which follows the entry is our Issue Number in which the feature appeared.

The suffix (RS) means it was one of our shorter Root Salad features which we introduced after issue 100; the suffix (SR) indicates that this was published when we were originally quarterly and called Southern Rag. Folk Roots monthly issue numbers ran consecutively from Southern Rag ones: the changeover took place at issue 25, July 1985. A * after the issue number indicates that this was the main cover feature.

Please note that:

  • It has not yet been possible to index individual artists who appear in country or genre features (e.g. Malian Women, Madagascar Guitarists, Rembetika, Peru)
  • We also have a Reviews Index.
