- post-chill reminder!
No sooner did we send out our copy date alerts last week than everybody, us
included, vanished into snow and ice oblivion! Here's hoping that you, like us,
are now thawing out a bit. In view of all the disruption everybody has been
suffering, we've extended the deadline by a few days.

Issue 321 of the most influential roots, world music
& folk magazine

* On the cover, celebrating
their burgeoning success, bigger band and smaller name, those sisters of spooky
folk The Unthanks. Plus a whole issue full of other worldwide folk & roots
* This is a great time for
record labels and distributors to start promoting important new year
* Local and international
festivals are finalising their plans for 2010. It's the last chance to bring
artists and their achievements to the attention of event organisers, and vice
* For festivals, it's now
time to start promoting your 2010 events. It's looking like another busy year,
with the UK and mainland Europe's folk and world music festivals more attractive
than ever to audiences seeking fun alternatives to expensive holidays further
We launched a full digital edition of fRoots last July as an
economic subscription alternative and it has been drawing interest and
subscribers from all over the world. See a full free-view demo version of a
digital back issue via our web site front page http://www.frootsmag.com .
* All adverts that appear in the print edition of
fRoots are carried in identical form in the digital edition AT NO EXTRA
COST, including working web links on all adverts of 1/4 page size and
for rates & discounts, sizes, technical specs, stats

* We have maximum 28 percent crossover readership with any
other music magazine. With fRoots you really do reach the long-term
committed folk, roots and world music audience and opinion-formers that no other
magazine gets to.
* Don't think of fRoots as a purely UK magazine. We take you
around the world - 40 percent of our readership is outside the UK. And this
worldwide readership - who buy on average more than 50 CDs each a year! - is
incredibly internet-wise: you don't need UK or international export distribution
in order to sell to them.
