2017 is half gone. Sigh. First posting since my original site was hacked.
Music has the power to unlock and release memories. Ragtime (for millennials) was a style of popular music in the progressive era which emerged as a reaction to the gilded age about a 100 years ago. It was the soundtrack of movies and what was heard wherever people gathered.
We attended a concert of the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra complete with a showing of Charlie Chaplin’s, The Pawnshop.
Yup, the audience was mostly geezers, but this was the music of our grandparents. We were all smiling and laughing. This is happy music with some real depth. Short sample.
