The Folk Show Road Show: Roy Bookbinder

Feb 22, 2017

Bluesman Roy Bookbinder says that if he had been born 50 years earlier, he would have become a minstrel man.  

In his long musical journey through the rich American cultural landscape of the last half of the 20th Century, he’s been friends with the Rev. Gary Davis, Pink Anderson and Robert Lockwood. 

He’s toured with Arthur Big Boy Crudup, Hot Tuna, JJ Cale & Bonnie Raitt

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. 

And he performed this past September at the Wagon Shed in New Freedom, PA. 

Art Wachter recorded the concert on Sept 23, 2016, and you are welcome to listen right here!
