From ace music journalist Roger Deitz, (tagged by Billy Edd Wheeler; “The Shakespeare of Sing Out! columnists“) comes 15 Years of RagTag illustrated by Ed Courrier. A book so bold it dares to blow the lid off the contemporary acoustic music scene. 15 years of great humor writing with 56 collected RagTag columns from Sing Out! containing a few of folk’s dirty little secrets and a tomato crate of commentary and laughs. A primer for teaching everything you need to know about the lighter (and darker) side of folk music matters. Plus – a brand new CD – Love Songs – Now and Then – Roger targets romance, doing for relationships what Viagra (R) did for the pharmaceutical industry. Mailed in an envelope so your neighbors won’t know you’re a folkie, or worse, suspect that you can read!

“Roger!…Thanks for your column – every issue I turn to it first. Please keep on thru the decades.” Pete Seeger
