Roy Book Binder is the epitome of the singing, songwriting, storytelling Bluesman troubadour. Book Binder became a student and friend of the legendary Reverend Gary Davis in the early sixties, and subsequently toured with him in the late 1960s. It was from these early days he became equally at home with Blues and ragtime.

Book Binder 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, and Old Timey acoustic Hill Country music with ease. More than anything, however, his storytelling style is what he is most renowned for. The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia said “the stories are as good as the songs”. Binder is a master of the Piedmont style as well as Delta blues.
