About Roy Bookbinder
Bookbinder has dedicated his professional life to preserving the legacy of Ragtime and Country Blues guitar. He is a consummate stylist on the acoustic guitar, capable of transporting the listener to a different time and place. He gained many of his guitar playing skills from the legendary Reverend Gary Davis, a leading star of the 1960s folk/blues revival, for whom Bookbinder worked as a chauffer. Starting in the late '70s, Bookbinder spent more than ten years living in a mobile home and touring the U.S., becoming a favorite on the coffeehouse circuit.
