Actor-singer Byron Nilsson and pianist Malcolm Kogut celebrate the early 20th century with a rousing program of songs and piano solos that capture the spirit of the Ragtime Era, when America’s tunesmiths found a syncopated beat, and music changed forever.
It all began with Scott Joplin, but once Irving Berlin’s Alexander’s Ragtime Bandbecame a hit in 1911, Tin Pan Alley went crazy with imitations. Spirited numbers like That Shakespearean Rag (which influenced T.S. Eliot), Eddie Cantor hits, and other up-tempo favorites will keep your toes tapping along.
