Roy Book Binder will be in concert Saturday
PRINCETON — Venerated bluesman Roy Book Binder will perform at the Princeton Coffeehouse at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
Book Binder’s musical style was shaped in the 1960s by traveling extensively with the blues and gospel singer, the Rev. Gary Davis. Known as a remarkable guitarist and storyteller, Book Binder says what he performs is “really old-time hillbilly music,” rather than straight-away blues. His eclectic repertoire includes blues, country tunes, bluegrass, folk and popular songs that originated on Tin Pan Alley.
“Living Blues” has described Book Binder as “a seasoned, mature blues artist with a sound of his own. He is a genuine example of the traveling-bluesman tradition that began in the ‘20s, was revived in the ‘60s, and continues today.”
Traveling across the country and around the world for four decades, Book Binder has performed at most major blues and folk festivals (Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia), sharing the stage with, among others, B.B. King, Sonny Terry, Doc Watson, Ray Charles and Brownie McGhee. At Merlefest, Book Binder has hosted the acoustic blues stage for close to 20 years.
