OUR NAME: "Raggedy edge" is a phrase used in the movie Serenity (highly recommended if you like sci-fi). That phrase made it into one of Bob's songs (Play the Game) and when they were looking for a name to call themselves, Raggedy Edge embodied the surprising feel of jumping effortlessly from genre to genre of music.

What kind of music do we play?
Adult Contemporary/Americana Originals and Covers
Raggedy Edge makes music that combines touches of folk, rock, country, blues, bluegrass, and jazz--along with a huge tip of the hat to the American Standards of the early and mid 20th century.

Lynn Perdzock and Bob Farley have been bringing their upbeat, positive, good-time songs to venues, communities, house concerts and listening rooms since they began making music together in the winter of 2011. Their songs blend tight vocal harmonies with uncommon instrumental talent, interesting stories, and witty, fun-loving camaraderie and banter.
"... very entertaining show featuring folk rock, country and Americana."
~Ron Ackerman, Music Director, Xenia Area Community Theater, Xenia, OH
Whether performing their own creations or interpreting classics from the American Standards of the 1930s through the 1950s and the folk rock country pop of the 1960s through today, Lynn and Bob are driven to share the gift of music they've been given, to pass along the joy and memories that songs can open up.

"...great performers [with] a real story to tell through their music."
~K. Coughlin, House Concert Host, Fort Myers, FL
Usually a duo, Raggedy Edge can add bass and percussion in the Dayton, Ohio area. And in their alternate identity as The Littlest Big Band, they offer nearly three hours of American Standards perfect for retirement and senior citizen facilities, or just anyone interested in hearing music that has stood the test of time.

Raggedy Edge: easy on the ears, uplifting to the soul, upbeat, positive, and fun.
