Blue Suede News covers the entire spectrum of American Roots Music,
from '50 s Rock'n'Roll styles - Rockabilly and Rhythm & Blues
to Country, Blues, Cajun & Zydeco, Swing and
you-name-it hybrids. Basically, anything we like.
We're Quarterly, with 52 pages each issue
(issues 32 thru 55 had 68 pages - #56 has 60 pages)

We're interested both in the pioneers of American Roots music
and also in contemporary artists who are carrying on these traditions
with a strong sense of those roots. While there are some other
magazines that cover one area of this subject such as Blues or Bluegrass,
none other covers the whole spectrum in the way we do.

We have feature articles on and interviews with musicians,
photos, reports from various scenes - including color photo layouts each issue -
and a massive review section covering books, DVDs, CDs, vinyl,

and occassionally other products relating to music.

We review around 100 CD/DVD/Book titles in each issue!

We receive many letters from readers who appreciate that our reviews are informative, trying to stroke neither artists' nor the writers' egos.

We try to get to the heart of the matter--why someone would want to own the product--rather than making too many value judgements.
