Can you hear it? America’s own folk music, its original pop music, a cultural uprising. After setting music on a course for blues, jazz, and swing, ragtime was mostly forgotten by the mainstream music industry. That all changed in the 1970s when “The Entertainer”, a rag by Scott Joplin, reached #3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Pop Charts. Since then, ragtime has enjoyed a comfy position of both history and heritage, entertainment and novelty.
