Last Concert Until September: Roy Book Binder

  #
Marc & I are ready for the next act breezing through town.  In the midst of all the hustle of camps & sports, we be crying the blues over here.  Judging from Roy's travel schedule, we're pretty lucky to have him stopping by the house here.   His posting this week talks about visiting w/ Honeyboy Edwards & Robert Lockwood up at BB Kings in NYC last week.  Then having dinner at Robert Lockwood's home the next day.

For those of you not familiar with Roy - Roy is literally a living, breathing connection to the great bluesmen of days gone by.  Marc has literally followed this guy for years.  It will be a marvelous evening of storytelling & acoustic blues here at the house in early July.   The swamp cooler should be firmly installed by then - so a COOL evening here at the house.

PLEASE check out the artist for yourself...  If you like his artistry - send us a check.  PLEASE don't put us in this last minute, we are sold out, we aren't sold out situation... Get your checks in this week.  What a great way to spend the Thursday just after the 4th.

July With Roy Book Binder

  #
Roy Book Binder is easily one of the most entertaining acts we will have through here this year.  Read the reviews for yourself.  It originally took us several years to get Roy here, but he enjoyed himself so much last year we'll have a hard time keeping him away.

We've been frequenting Roy's concerts for over 20 years - but don't take our word for it - listen to samples of his music.   Click on the albums and there are a couple of songs to listen to.

We're getting emails here from Roy on the road and we're really excited about this weekend's concert.  Y'all will really love the Roy Book Binder concert.  Pikes Peak Blues has been sending people our way - so PLEASE call to find out if seats are available.  An old fan from Austin TX called this morning andn snatched up 2 seats...

Join us for a great evening of the blues and storytelling.  Check out some of Roy's Music here.

The Book

  #

Y'all really want to get your tickets in for the Roy Book Binder concert.  Marc first booked Roy for a show at Hamilton College over 20 years ago and he's followed him faithfully since then.  If you enjoyed the Chris Smither concert, you shouldn't miss Roy.  Roy is a star in the world of country blues for many reasons:  he's a great guitar picker, and he masterfully recreates and updates many of the blues songs from the early part of the 20th Century. But most of all, he's a wonderful storyteller. His weaves tales in between songs- many drawn from his own experience traveling with the late Rev. Gary Davis and other legendary blues performers, and many (perhaps) apocryphal. He's funny, touching, and a warm and wonderful performer.   His music is accessible, moving, and makes your feet tap. I once heard him say that since there's not a lot of money in the blues thing, so he's repackaing himself as a singer/songwriter- he plays originals, old blues, new blues, and other songs that are hard to categorize, but all of them have that certain Book Binder thing. Roy's been touring the world for nearly 40 years, and has a rabid fan base- we've had people from a long way away already send in checks, so this one's going to sell out quickly.

Looking for audio clips I discovered that there are very few used RBB CD's available, an indication of the dedication of his fan base.  You should check out "gin done done it" of "friend like me" here.  There are several other albums are here as well to peruse.

Roy Book Binder - Bluesman, Storyteller & Songwriter

  #
Wow are you in for a treat!  For years Marc has followed Roy Book Binder and seen him at least a dozen times in concert.  We've been trying for 2 years to get him here and last night he finally confirmed that he will join us here in June. 
 
This article from the Sydney Herald aptly describes a Book Binder concert.  His press page says it all.  One UK reviewer of Roy's performance had this to say: "even if you think that the blues is not your thing, you'll love the Book Binder show."  To the right - that IS a picture of Roy with the legendary Sonny Terry.   Fans report that Roy is a real live travelin' bluesman in every sense of the word and we guarantee you'll enjoy the show that night.
