SOUVENIRS FROM THE RAGTIME FESTIVAL IN SEDALIA, MISSOURI!
Come join us for an afternoon of great ragtime music! Sign up to play a tune or two, or just sit back and enjoy the music. Admission is free, and everyone is welcome! There is no definite program scheduled, so plan on hearing a lot of great music! And… we might even have a student or two coming to “practice up” for the November Youth Festival.
