Roy Book Binder has the goods: the original, the bare-knuckle, the low-down . . . blues. Who can say they were friends with the Rev. Gary Davis and Pink Anderson, toured with Arthur Big Boy Crudup, JJ Cale, Hot Tuna & Bonnie Raitt, and has had Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Jorma Kaukonen recently record 2 of his songs?….Roy can.
Roy has the stories, the licks, and the mystery of timeless music in his fingers. He’s been featured on a PBS special and interviewed by Terry Gross on “Fresh Air.” He’s also a regular at Fur Peace Ranch, where he teaches along with Jorma and his all star compadres.When he rolls his ‘Tour Bus’ to town, a one-man blues-fest ensues. Roy plays and he entertains, feeding us music and stories, and the evening is a celebration for us all. We’re privileged to have Roy here to preserve–and extend—the tradition of great American blues music.
