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 won out.
Raggedy Edge:
Acoustic Americana with a Modern Folk Twist
A Love Story in Two-part Harmony

"Music brought us together, it keeps us together, and we look forward to many years of sharing its joys."

When Lynn Perdzock and Bob Farley met at an open mic in Fairborn, Ohio in 2011, neither knew right away that they would wind up married, writing and recording songs together, traveling the country as a band, and having the time of their lives. But, in hindsight, since Lynn loved to sing and play guitar, and Bob loved to play guitar and sing, it seems only natural.

Raggedy Edge has fun with their music. People enjoy their stories, their laughter, and their talent and musicianship.

"And we've enjoyed meeting people who've shaken hands with and knew stars like Frank Sinatra before they got their big breaks. We've shared stories with folks whose parents were traveling musicians in big bands, whose households were often the sites of impromptu jams by visiting players, and some who have spent part of their lives traveling and playing in a band, much as we are doing. We've been surprised by the talents of folks who never lost their love of music and can still bang out any tune they want to on a piano.

"All this and more makes us realize the importance of the gift of song we've been given and drives us to nurture and grow it with each show, to pass along the joy and memories music contains."

Lynn's rhythm guitar and mandolin back up her pure powerful vocals that soar and dip with each song, whether singing lead or harmonizing with Bob's baritone-tenor. His guitar playing swoops from smooth and laid-back to flashy and hard-driving. At this point in their career, all the instruments are played live--even the loopers and harmonizer Bob sometimes calls into play. "Hey, they're instruments, too!

"Something that many people find surprising about our setlist of original and cover blues, bluegrass, country, folk, jazz, pop, rap, and swing is the inclusion of standards from the 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. We try to pick cover songs that everybody has heard at one time or another, including the standards which have stood the test of time again and again."

Usually a duo, Raggedy Edge can add bass and percussion in the Dayton, Ohio area, providing an extra dimension to the band's high energy groove.

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