and storytelling bluesman Roy Book Binder has
been rambling around the world for the past 45
years. He gave up his Greenwich Village "pad"
in the early 70's and lived in his "Tour Bus"
for the next 15 years crisscrossing the US and
appearing at festivals throughout Canada &
Europe. Roy is considered a walking
encyclopedia of blues music, artists and lore.
He has authored five video tutorials for the
well-respected Homespun Lessons, and has nine
CDs currently available, on top of numerous
previous vinyl records and tapes. Roy has been
one of the legends of acoustic music for a
long time, and we are delighted to have him on
our stage at Second Saturday.
Binder, travelled with the legendary Rev. Gary
Davis in the late 60's. He recorded his first
solo acoustic Blues album in the 70's, which
was the first to receive 5 stars in DOWNBEAT
magazine. In the late 80's 'The Book' was part
of Bonnie Raitt's East Coast Tour, which
included an appearance on The Grand Old Opry
which led to almost 30 appearances on
NASHVILLE NOW's Ralph Emory Show. In the 90's
he often appeared with JORMA KAUKONEN (who
recorded 2 of Roy's songs)
August, 2013, THE GOOD BOOK, Roy's latest
release of all original songs, reached #3 on
AirPlayDirect's Americana charts. #1 was Guy
Clark & #2 was the late Townes Van Zandt.
