Join pianist Sean Fleming and bassist Chuck McGregor for the “Real Ragtime Concert,” a collection of classic, early 20th century Rag tunes, on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 3:00 pm. Performed in the original styles and tempos rarely heard today, the concert will feature compositions by Confrey, Gershwin, Hayden, Joplin, Lamb, Morton, Scott, and Shepherd. Upbeat favorites such as Joplin’s “The Entertainer,” “Maple Leaf Rag,” and “The Easy Winners” will be mixed with slower pieces such as Lamb’s “Ragtime Nightingale” and Joplin’s “Solace.” The piano solo “Jelly Roll Blues,” an early jazz piece, will be played, as well as the novelty piano piece “Dizzy Fingers,” which is played as fast as its title would indicate. This concert is sure to be a favorite for people of all ages! Enjoy great music while looking at waterfront views at The Lincoln Home, 22 River Rd, Newcastle, Maine.
