Hits of the Ragtime Era with Cherry & Jerry at Sun Prairie Public Library

May 22, 2024 6:30 pm

Pop music comes and goes, but some songs from over 100 years ago are just as fresh in the mind as the day they were written. “The Entertainer,” “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” “St. Louis Blues,” and “Ballin’ the Jack” are still familiar, but even when they first hit the scene, these songs were recognized as having something special. We’ll take a look at some of the songs that captivated the public, why they were successful in their own time and how their popularity continued into the present, and we’ll also share some lesser-known songs and rags that were hits back in their day. So to quote Irving Berlin, “come on along” for a great hour of ragtime and also some early jazz and blues! Great music for all ages!
