Modern Ragtime

Ragtime may be over a hundred years old, but some people are still writing new Ragtime music!  Larry Porter‘s  recent release through Schott Music, “Piano Rags” , is such a collection.    Four of the eight pieces in this book of sheet music were inspired by his impressions of his native country, the U.S.A.      “Athens County Rag” is a reference to his native state, Ohio.  “Peace March”  is a nod to Larry’s anti-war leanings.  “Crab Apple Rag, (An Inedible Slow Drag)”  is a fun slow drag, with the footnote: “Do not play this piece fast. A fast interpretation  may cause indigestion in the listener as well as the performer.”  Not all Ragtime is fast!  If you have questions about this collection or other Ragtime music, please call us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website at Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
