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 & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee Jorma Kaukonen recently record two 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.
