Raggin' my way to the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival in Sedalia, Missouri (June 2 - 6)

Greetings all. I have great news. I'll be attending the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival which takes place in the historic town of Sedalia, Missouri (see map). This year's festival starts on June 2 and ends on June 6, 2010. A highly popular musical and celebratory event where people from all over the world descend on the quiet town of 25,000. This trip is being sponsored by a communication company, sComm, Inc, based in Missouri, a few hours away from Sedalia, Missouri. I've known the CEO and founder of that company for several years. A great friend of mine. So, be sure to check out their website for their products and services.

I plan to blog about my trip and this ragtime festival with pictures and videos. I'm sure I'll meet many well known (and unknown) skillful ragtime pianists there. Many of them I am envy of their superb skills. Be sure to keep an eye on this blog for more updates and news.

I find this fascinating and this inspires a lot of people, including me!

Please do take a lot of pictures and if possible; could you describe feeling what the piano is like when you play it?

Many thanks!

I plan to do just that. Time to buy a better video camera.

Thanks, Karen. I'm sure I'll have a great time there. Just got myself a new video camera with 60 gigabytes of memory worth! I'll be busy with my new little toy and be sure to keep a watch out here come this June.
