Roy Book Binder
Roy Book Binder has been rambling around the world playing the blues for over 50 years
Who can say they were friends with the Rev. Gary Davis and Pink Anderson? And toured with Arthur Big Boy Crudup, Hot Tuna & Bonnie Raitt? Roy can. He 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.
Roy Book Binder has traveled the world as a “keeper of the flame” and ambassador of the blues since the late ’60s, and has been a Caffè Lena favorite since 1968. One of the finest fingerpickers working today, Roy has an eclectic repertoire that includes blues, country tunes, bluegrass and folk.
