Publication date is 17th June. Subscribers will start to receive theirs from around 12th June.

*  Our cover exclusive this month, US folk blues legend Spider John Koerner, early influence on Bob Dylan, veteran stomper, admired by everybody from John Lennon to Bonnie Raitt to Martin Simpson and soon to do his first UK tour for nearly 30 years. Just one of many great features on music new and old from here and everywhere in the July issue, along with our unrivalled news coverage, extensive reviews and much more.
*  Guaranteed football free! While the rest of the world loses its brains to World Cup mania, your fearless fRoots will avoid all spurious references to men kicking balls. We're a music magazine, right?

*  Festivals! This year's giant Festival issue confirmed the buoyancy of the scene to which fRoots has been central and supportive for so many years. Festival organisers have been kind to tell us of audience research which shows that of all the mags they advertise in, fRoots is the one which easily produces the best results for ticket sales and event awareness. And of course we've often been the first to enthuse audiences about many of the artistsŠ


A year ago we launched a full digital edition of fRoots as an economic subscription alternative and it has been drawing interest and subscribers from all over the world. See a full free-view demo version of a digital back issue via our web site front page . Now we've made fRoots even more attractive to the huge new young audience for folk, roots & world music by announcing a hugely discounted student subscription deal - 75% off the normal digital rate (and 35% off the paper version)!

* All adverts that appear in the print edition of fRoots are carried in identical form in the digital edition AT NO EXTRA COST, including working web links on all adverts of 1/4 page size and above

for rates & discounts, sizes, technical specs, stats etc.

See for secure subscribing on line.

And remember:

* We have maximum 28 percent crossover readership with any other music magazine. With fRoots you really do reach the long-term committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other magazine gets to.

* Don't think of fRoots as a purely UK magazine. We take you around the world - 40 percent of our readership is outside the UK. And this worldwide readership - who buy on average more than 50 CDs each a year! - is incredibly internet-wise: you don't need UK or international export distribution in order to sell to them.

FREE NEWS LISTINGS: We list information on July events in the news section of this issue. We need it by Wednesday 19th May latest. Send your full press release to news_at_frootsmag_dot_com  If you have hi-res (300ppi) colour JPEGs of artists participating, send them to copy_at_frootsmag_dot_com
