Scott Joplin ragtime festival Event (Festival, Camp, etc) Reviews

Overall Comments

The city of Sedalia, Mo., holds it's annual Scott Joplin Ragtime festival every year during the first weekend in June.

The event features ragtime piano players from around the world, as well as various string bands, jug bands and old-time dance events, both on the downtown streets and in paid concerts.

For folks interested in this type of original American music, I highly recommend this festival. Sedalia is charming town (and site of the original Maple Leaf Club -- now demolished -- where S. Joplin worked) and the streets come alive with toe-tapping syncopated music for several days, most of it free.
