Ragtime at the Library
Sam the Piano Man brings the ragtime life to the Preuter Library Photo BMK
Mr. Hobel led the audience through a brief discussion of the history of the syncopated music that became a national craze during the first two decades of the twentieth century.
With its origins in the saloons and sporting houses of St. Louis, ragtime is more often associated with rowdy men than polite women. Yet, by about 1910, young ladies mostly centered in the Mid-West were trying their hands at this “sinful indulgence”
Mr. Hobel has unearthed compositions by eleven women composers and assembled them into “A Ragtime Suite: From the Other Wing”. The chosen pieces clearly stand with the strongest examples of the genre, giving a tantalizing glimpse of the talent that has been too long ignored.
For those fortunate enough to be in attendance, Sam the Piano Man proved a genial and capable guide to a brief moment in American popular history. The power of ragtime to lift spirits was evident in the slight syncopation in the steps of the audience as they lightly made their way home.
