Sutter Creek’s 14th Annual Ragtime Festival August 10-12

Have you ever wondered what music teenagers of a century ago were listening to that drove their parent’s wild? Well, we have the answer! It was Ragtime, and to catch that “feel young again” spirit, come and enjoy the 14th Annual Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival, to be held August 10-12, 2012.

Sutter Creek will be jumping again with sparkling solo sets, the festival extravaganza concerts, mixed sets featuring the talents of several festival artists, plus all the hilarity and good music spilling on into the After Hours sessions where there is always a surprise player or two.

Do you enjoy silent movies on the silver screen? Well, Frederic Hodges and Keith Taylor scheduled for a Silent Movie Night. How about Gala Festival Concerts? Well, two of those are also planned that feature festival headliners.

A Future of Ragtime Concert is also planned presenting some pretty serious youth performers. Add in five, practically nonstop venues of solo, duos and groups all presenting the many moods of ragtime and you’ve got a festival not to be missed. There is even a pre-festival gathering “Wine and Nibbles” at Skunk Hollow, the Victorian home of Chip Lusby, 50 Gold Dust Trail in Sutter Creek.

The list of invited performers includes Patrick Aranda, The Bradshaws, Tom Brier, Crown Syncopators, Marty Eggers, Frederick Hodges, Vincent Johnson, Carl "Sonny" Leyland, Larisa Migachyov,  Will Perkins, Stevens Price, Ragtime Skedaddlers, Ragnolia Ragtette, Raspberry Jam Band, John Remmers, Tim Rotolo, Ray Skjelbred, Squeek Steele, Paul Stewart, Monty Suffern, Sullivans & Drivons, Keith Taylor, Virginia Tichenor, John Reed-Torres and more.
