"Rags to Riches"
Kansas City celebrates the music of Scott Joplin
Rags to Riches is a lively program about the Ragtime music of the late 1800's and early 1900's. Performed by The TurpinTyme Ragsters, Kansas City's premier ragtime ensemble and best defined by musician Scott Joplin, Ragtime was a musical and cultural phenomenon that came from the African-American society of the urban South and Midwest. With it's syncopated energy, Ragtime music was America's first original classic art form that became popular on a national level and influenced every significant American music form that followed.
