Mike Denham is a fine pianist and raconteur who performs ragtime widely, at concert venues including London’s Purcell Room and St George’s Bristol. Great melodies, great stories about the musicians and the lives they led and, of course, that seductive ragtime rhythm.
“RAGTIME PRODUCES HYSTERIA, INSANITY – ragtime is not music, it is a disease” claims doctor. This ragtime-era headline celebrated the world’s first pop music craze, 100 years ago. Scott Joplin, the son of a slave, became the greatest of ragtime composers.
