From a recent review of Roy’s new CD,
THE GOOD BOOK from pbsfm.org.au
”Roy Book Binder is a laconic living treasure of American Blues, Ragtime and Old-Timey music. He is the epitome of the singing, song-writing, story-telling Bluesman troubadour. Binder from the early sixties became a student, chauffeur, and friend of the Rev. Gary Davis and it was from these early days he became equally at home with Blues and Ragtime. He is known to shift from open tunings to slide arrangements set to his original and sometimes quirky tongue in cheek compositions, with both traditional and self-styled licks, drawing on many musical influences. He combines his Blues with Hokum, Dixie Jazz licks, Yas Yas styling’s, recited lines, Old Timey acoustic Hill Country music with ease. It is this storey-telling style that he is renowned for. Binder is much revered and has shared the stage with a luminary of some of the biggest Roots artists around the world. He also is a guitar teacher of note and most of his compositions relate back to his time as chauffeur and companion to Rev. Gary Davis. With his latest release Book Binder once again delivers just what he does best. “”The Good Book”" on Binder’s own label Peg Leg Records presents 10 quality self penned compositions all delivered in his laconic style. “
Still touring and recording, this past August 19th, THE GOOD BOOK, Roy’s latest release of all original songs, reached #3 on Air Play Direct’s Americana charts! #1 was Guy Clark & #2 was the late Townes Van Zandt. Richard Gillmann, from Folkdj.org, listed Roy in the top 3 artists for July of 2013.
