Roy Bookbinder: Master of the Blues Guitar
Roy has the goods: the original, the bare-knuckle, the low-down... blues. He has the stories, the licks, and the mystery of timeless music in his fingers.
"[An] entertaining hybrid of folklorist, comedian, blues singer, storyteller and virtuoso guitar picker." —Sydney Morning Herald
Who can say they were friends with the Rev. Gary Davis, Pink Anderson and Robert Lockwood? And toured with Arthur Big Boy Crudup, Hot Tuna, JJ Cale and Bonnie Raitt? Roy can. 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 Kaukonen. When he brings his "Tour Bus" to town, a one-man blues-fest ensues. He 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.
