Event description

Description

Presenter: Jeannie McInnes

Synopsis: Scott Joplin died over 100 years ago, never recorded apart from piano rolls, never saw his major work performed, never saw the fame he deserved and died bankrupt, discouraged and worn out. His passing also "heralded the end of this style in mainstream popular music”. Yet in more recent decades, Ragtime, and Scott Joplin in particular, have been rediscovered and appreciated. In this presentation we will examine the music of Joplin and explore the style of Ragtime and its other performers.
