Sutter Creek’s 15th Annual Ragtime Festival Coming August 9-11

Have you ever wondered what music teenagers of a century ago were listening to that drove their parents' wild? Well, we have the answer! It was Ragtime, and to catch that “feel young again” spirit, come and enjoy the 15th Annual Sutter Creek Ragtime Festival on August 9-11.

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, they’ve got 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.

All-Events badges, which include the two special concerts and Silent Movie Night, are now on sale for $75. Youth 16 and under attend free with a paying adult. Day badges and individual concert tickets will also be available. Badge order forms may be found at
