Shellac Stack No. 53 salutes “Ragtime Season” with more than a dozen rags. From string bands to accordions to pianos to xylophones to Hawaiian guitars to vocal quartets… explore the many styles of ragtime in this super syncopated session! We’ll hear from Jelly Roll Morton, Wally Rose, Ted Hawkins and Riley Puckett, Guido Deiro, the American Quartet, Brun Campbell, George Hamilton Green, the Eton Boys, and more!
The Shellac Stack will take a short hiatus after this program; look for Shellac Stack No. 54 in mid-June. In the meantime, for those in the area or able to travel, I encourage you to check out the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest (May 21-25 in Peoria, Illinois) or the Scott Joplin International Ragtime Festival (June 3-6 in Sedalia, Missouri).
