"Vail Public Library hosted Raggedy Edge ... and they were phenomenal! Bob and Lynn were lively, engaging and oh so talented. We look forward to hosting them again next year!"

About Raggedy Edge
Booking ~ Nice Comments ~ Places We've Played

WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO WE PLAY?: Pop, folk, rock, jazzy blues, bluesy jazz, country-flavored, American Standards. From the 1930s and '40s, through the '60s and '70s, bit of '80s and '90s, and a touch of the 2000s and 2010s.

ORIGINALS: Our original music dates from the 2010s and 2020s, and leans more toward soft rock, blues, country, pop, and some jazzy elements.

We have four CDs and two EPs of original songs together, plus two solo collections. You can order them through Bandcamp, or just listen to the whole lot for free! Most of our music is on Spotify, Apple, and other online outlets, as well.

We recently collected songs according to genre and made them available as downloads at Bandcamp. These are very nice if you're in the mood for a certain mood. Have a listen:


Our live shows usually contain a few American Standards from our Littlest Big Band collection to add to the family-friendly fun, unique harmonies, fancy guitar playing, and snappy repartee. Music lovers looking for positive, upbeat messages will find that and much more in a Raggedy Edge performance.

Fellow Musicians
There was a year or so where we sent songs to Nashville Songwriters Association for critiquing. Here is some of the nice things they had to say:
"...your singing and playing are stronger than most things I hear regularly..."
"...clearly you can write a song."
"...you can write a strong song."
"...you have really good prosody to the lyric."
"...'You Would Be Mine' stands out as the strongest of what I've heard before."
"The musical vibe is cool, with a really fun groove with a unique style."
"['Home to Waikiki' has a] very memorable hook! Very strong and descriptive lyric. Your writing really put me right there in your story!"
~various Nashville Songwriters Association International reviewers

"Melody, harmony and story are what music is all about for me and they have it."
~Art Casci, singer/guitarist

"Raggedy Edge original songs speak from life experiences, with a slant for humor and clever plays on words."
~Curtis Alley, independent musician, producer, Fairborn, OH

"These guys are like Mel Torme meets Van Halen."
~Jim Coughlin, producer/musician

One of the joys of having music to share is the ability to travel the country doing just that. Below is the history of tours we've made. How do we do it? The "we" in this case is our administrator of destinations and venues, developer of set lists and wardrobes, player of guitar and mandolin, and the beautiful dreamer and singer of crystal clear melodies and lush harmonies: Lynn. If you'd like to have us play for your event, she is the one to call!
