Join Sean Fleming and his 8-piece Dam' Rag Scotta Orchestra for the "Real Ragtime Concert," a collection of classic, early 20th century Ragtime and early jazz pieces, on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at 7:30 pm, at the Congregational Church of Bristol. Proceeds from this concert will benefit the church. Performed in the original styles and tempos rarely heard today, the concert will feature compositions by Confrey, Gershwin, Joplin, Lamb, Morton, Shepherd, and Scott. Included will be several works from the "Red Back Book," a collection of Ragtime orchestral arrangements published in the early 1900s. Upbeat favorites such as Joplin's "The Entertainer," "Maple Leaf Rag," and "The Easy Winners" will be mixed with slower pieces such as Gershwin's "Novelette in Fourths". The piano solo "Shreveport Stomp," an early jazz piece, will be played, as well as the novelty piano piece "Greenwich Witch," a virtuosic piano showpiece. This concert is sure to be a favorite for people of all ages!
The Dam' Rag Scotta Orchestra consists of the very talented musicians Chuck McGregor, bass; David DeBolt, bassoon; Mitch Kihn, clarinet; Linda Brunner, flute; Carol Preston and Carolyn MacDonald, violins; and Sean Fleming, piano.
