Ragtime Festival

June 15 & 16, 2019

Old Town Music Hall presents the annual Ragtime Festival on Saturday, June 15 and Sunday, June 16 at 2:30 p.m.

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 44th year of this rousing tradition. Some of the best ragtime pianists in the world have graced the Old Town Music Hall stage in the past 44 years, and this year, the tradition continues with acclaimed pianist Richard Dowling kicking off the Festival with Great Scott!, a solo concert featuring piano compositions by Scott Joplin.

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.
