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 feel of moving effortlessly from genre to genre of music.
What kind of music do we play?
Originals and Covers in folk rock country blues, with a little bit of bluegrass to jazz to Standards

If you like your musical entertainment infused with a steady folk-rock groove laced with touches of blues, bluegrass, and jazz--along with a huge tip of the hat to the American Standards of the early and mid 20th century--then Raggedy Edge has your back.

When Lynn Perdzock and Bob Farley met at an open mic in Fairborn, Ohio in 2011, they didn't know they would wind up married, writing and recording songs together, traveling the country as a band, and having the time of their lives. But since Lynn loves to sing and play guitar, and Bob loves to play guitar and sing, it's not that big a surprise.

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. Bob's guitar playing swoops from smooth and laid-back to choppy and hard-driving, whatever the song demands. They play their instruments live--even the loopers and harmonizer Bob sometimes calls into play. "Hey, they're instruments, too!"

Their repertoire stretches from the early 1900s Tin Pan Alley Amerian Standards, through country, folk, blues, bluegrass, jazz, pop, rock, and experimental indie originals. Whatever they do, they keep it upbeat and positive, and easy on the ears volume-wise.

Bob and Lynn travel as a duo, and they can add bass and percussion in the Dayton, Ohio area. And the couple perform entire shows of American Standards as The Littlest Big Band, "little" because there's just two of them, and "Big Band" because of the kind of songs they choose. And when they play as a quartet, they might be Raggedy Edge and the Littlest Big Band. It's all about having fun, sharing smiles, bringing back and making some new good times.
