Wicked Storytelling

Ramblin Jack Elliot + Roy Book Binder

Saturday night we dodged out of the German-American beer swilling festival, a.k.a. Germania, which had overtaken our lovely Lincoln Square streets, for the somewhat saner climes of Old Town School of Folk Music, where Roy Book Binder and Ramblin’ Jack were performing a late show. Both artists are consumate storytellers–noted weavers of dialectic yarns. It was a great welcome to Chicago, my new neighborhood stage, and two artists I had previously never encountered.
