John William "Blind" Boone Ragtime and Jazz Festival
KOPN-89.5 FM - Ragtime
915 East Broadway
Columbia, MO 65201 USA

Festival Description

The 2007 festival has been cancelled. Columbia's annual Ragtime and Early Jazz Festival pays homage to a life and talent that has always been known and respected among the devotees of Missouri's indigenous music, Ragtime. As a genre, Ragtime is the result of the marriage of folk strains, the European romantic tradition, and African polyrhythms. Boone's compositions allow us to experience the genesis of Ragtime from these earlier musical forms.
