We Just Roll Along....

And the endless tour continues.....

After spending a great month at home, tending the Palm Trees, and such, I'm packin' up for the Fall tour....Also been busy looking ahead to 2014!  Looks like we will be doing a cross country tour in the "new bus" after MERLEFEST which is the last weekend of April.  

We have been enjoying watching THE GOOD BOOK, climb the internet charts.  Reaching #3 on Airplay Direct's Americana top 50, behind Guy Clark & Townes Van Zandt. (pretty good company i'm keeping there!)  July showed us at # 5 on APD's Blues Charts top 50 also pretty cool....  This all was made possible by my publicist's hard work. For the 1st time in my career, I worked with a talented and wonderful publicist named Kari Estrin.  She also did a great job with folkdj.org charts....(based on airplay) for the month of July where  THE GOOD BOOK was  #4 on the charts, with 4 songs in the top 20 and all that worked out to making me  #3 artist for the month...... I have never had this much airplay before and it's pretty cool as I approach my 70th Birthday......

Looking forward to an exciting Fall Tour mostly in the Mid South, Mid West and finally back to the North East.  It will be so cool to get back to Jorma's FUR PEACE RANCH, for the  Rev. Gary Davis Weekend with Rory Block & Jorma.  Make sure you check the website for details on all shows.   www.roybookbinder.com

In  early November, I will be attending The North East Regional Folk Alliance convention (NERFA) in Keshoken, NY where I will be doing a Quad Showcase performance..... There will be a lot of pickin' & grinnin' there for sure and I'm looking forward to all that.   Also may attend the National Folk Music Alliance in Kansas City this Winter.....

"The early bird catches the worm", so we are starting to book "house concerts" across the country to fill in the tour and we are getting some early positive responses.  These shows are often the most fun for all..... Looks like California by early June and Colorado in Late June and the mid west by July 4th weekend.

I'll sign off now, thanking you all for being there, and wishing you all healthy & happy days ahead.

Bye Now,

Roy
