Part of the 20th Season of the UU Coffeehouse music series

If all you know of Cary Cooper is her days with the duo, The Dreamsicles, then you don’t know enough about Cary Cooper!   The woman has come into her own.

  • WINNER Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition ('04)
  • 2nd PLACE Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase ('12)
  • 3rd PLACE Telluride Troubadour Songwriting Competition ('12)
  • FINALIST Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase ('12 & '04)
  • FINALIST Sisters Folk Fest Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest ('09, '10)
In 2012, Cary took the folk world by storm by placing 2nd and 3rd in the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s Troubadour competition, respectively; along with being an Emerging Artist at Falcon Ridge.  

Cary has written a slew of new songs, many of them on “Zuzu’s Petals” released in 2013. On the album, Cary fully embraces her pop sensibilities while keeping the grounded, thoughtful lyrics her folk audiences have come to expect and adore. 

The Coffeehouse is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia. We offer a family friendly, smoke-free listening environment for the appreciation of original singer/songwriter music. The majority of the musicians who play at the UU tour nationally and internationally.

The UU Coffeehouse, which opened its 20th season in September 2013, presents a range of acoustic music with connections to folk, blues, Celtic, bluegrass, jazz, and international music. Featuring musicians who tour nationally and internationally, the UU is a favorite performing and listening room for musicians who bring unique original music to the Columbia area.

    SINGER-SONGWRITER-STORYTELLING-BLUESMAN..... Roy Book Binder has been rambling around the world for the past 45 years!   He gave up his Greenwich Village "pad” in the early 1970's and lived in his "Tour Bus" for the next 15 years criss crossing the US and appearing at festivals throughout Canada & Europe.


    Book Binder, traveled with the legendary Rev. Gary Davis in the late 60's..... The Book, recorded his first solo acoustic Blues album in the 70's, which was the first to receive  5 stars in DOWNBEAT magazine!  In the late 80's 'The Book' was part of Bonnie Raitt's East Coast Tour, which included an appearance on The Grand Old Opry which led to almost 30 appearances on NASHVILLE NOW's, Ralph Emory Show!   In the 90's he often appeared with JORMA KAUKONEN (who recorded 2 of Roy's songs)


    Last Aug. 19th, THE GOOD BOOK, Roy's latest release of all original songs, reached #3 on AirPlayDirect's Americana charts!  #1 was Guy Clark & #2 was the late Townes Van Zandt.  Folkdj.org had Roy in the top 3 artists for July.
