Every once in while I break out of my usual home on the fRoots review pages to write a feature for the magazine instead. Click on any of the images below to find a screen-friendly version of the piece, often with some bonus material added which you'll find only on PlanetSlade.

Tom Russell

fRoots 415/416 (Jan/Feb 2018)

An extended version of my October 2017 interview with one of America's greatest songwriters. Bonus material includes my review of Russell's latest album and some photographs and memories from his 2017 UK gigs.


Uncle Sinner

fRoots 397 (Jul 2016)

When a gap opened up in the mag's "new artists" section, I was quick to pitch this interview with Canada's finest emerging bluesman. The piece won Uncle Sinner a slot on fRoots' next podcast and some airplay on London's Resonance FM, which pleased us both. I've added my review of his latest CD here too.
