Brown Bag Concert: The Rhythmia
The Westport Center for the Arts Brown Bag concert on Nov. 17, 2017 presents ragtime and folk music performed by The Rhythmia, an old-time acoustic string band.
The duo offers a mix of authentic ragtime primarily written and published in Kansas City, old-time fiddle tunes, and Caribbean music, along with original compositions, to form a variety of old-time folk dance music.
Over a hundred years ago, ragtime was America’s original popular music. While considered primarily as piano solo music today, ragtime was often played during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by string bands consisting of violins, guitars, banjos and mandolins. TheView more
