The History of Ragtime Presented by Pianist Deborrah Wyndham

Deborrah-Wyndham-Main-PicThrough music, pianist Deborrah Wyndham shares the history of our nation's first 'pop' music: ragtime. Also the beginnings of jazz, ragtime has gone on to influence many other musicians and styles of music. With different ethnic musical influences and at first rejected by society for its unusual, syncopated rhythm and venues where it was played, ragtime later on received wide acclaim and its popularity spread fast. Ragtime is an important part of our American musical heritage.

The event is on Tuesday, May 27 at 6:00 p.m. at the Crown Point Library, 122 N Main Street.

This event is Free and sponsored by the Friends of the Crown Point Library. Refreshments will be served.
