* MIMI BLAIS After The StingMIMI BLAIS After The Sting

Time: 7:00 pm

Tickets: $20 in advance - $25 at door Mimi Blais, the Queen of Ragtime and virtuoso performer, presents music written by the masters of ragtime, sometimes slow and introspective and sometimes fast and furious! If one would ask legendary Bob Darch: Is ragtime music dead? He would answer: I never heard it had been sick! After the movie “The Sting”, ragtime music once again became popular not only in the United States but all around the world. The renewed interest in ragtime, the American popular music in the early part of the 20th century, is one of the most curious cases of changing musical taste in recent years. The revival began in 1970, when a recording of eight piano rags of Scott Joplin, the most important of the ragtime composers, appeared on the Nonesuch classical label. The record, which soon became a best-seller, was the idea of Joshua Rifkin, then a twenty-six-year-old pianist with degrees in composition from the Juilliard School of Music and in musicology from Princeton University. Rifkin was not rediscovering forgotten or previously unrecorded material, for ragtime had remained popular with jazz and Dixieland audiences. But he played the music differently from the “flashy school of ragtime,” as he called it.” What emerged was a subtle and delicate music, with graceful melodies and compelling rhythms, which captivated a large new audience. The ragtime revival has provided a valuable service in making these pieces readily available again. This music originally came from saloons and cat-houses. It was meant to entertain, and Mimi Blais will do just that!
