Watch above as Book Binder, a ragtime master, sings “It Coulda Been Worse,” “Step Right Up,” and “The Good Book,” and spins a few yarns about being a student, friend, (and chauffeur!) of Reverend Gary Davis, performing with bluesman Pink Anderson, and his secret to mastering guitar playing.
Book Binder plays a Tony Klassen-built replica of a Montgomery Ward version of a 1930 Gibson Nick Lucas Special. (The original is owned by Norman Blake.)
