|Central Pennsylvania Ragtime Music Festival|
|Dates:||Friday, September 22, 2017 - Sunday, September 24, 2017|
|Title:||Central Pennsylvania Ragtime Music Festival|
|Description:||World class musicians who come to a small church in a tiny town, apparently out of sheer enthusiasm for what they do, to perform at a scrappy little ragtime festival to an awed and amazed crowd. Every year I pinch myself. I can't believe what I'm hearing and where I am. Surely this church would be packed if others only knew of these phenomenal performances.
And the laughter and the jokes -the performers are national and far flung friends who love ribbing and challenging each other. We all soak up their informality, sharing in the intimacy. Please come.|
