The popular American musical genre known as Ragtime enjoyed its heyday between 1895 and about 1920, and then fell into virtual obscurity until a revival in the 1970s with Scott Joplin’s The Entertainer made popular by the film The Sting.
This is the 43rd year of this rousing annual tradition. Some of the best ragtime pianists in the world have graced the Old Town Music Hall stage in the past 43 years, and this year the tradition continues with four great pianists – Frederick Hodges, Vincent Johnson, Carl “Sonny” Leyland, John Reed-Torres – three fine pianos, and of course, the 1925 Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ. It’s the most anticipated weekend of the year, so reservations are recommended.
Tickets are $20 per person. Cash or Check Only – No Credit Cards. For reservations, call the theater at 310-322-2592.
