ADAM SWANSON – A RAGTIME FEAST

Adam Swanson is the foremost young ragtime enthusiast in the United States. He has been performing since he was ten years old and between 2008 and 2015, he became the only four-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest. He made his New York debut at Carnegie Hall when he was nineteen and has played at the Bohem Ragtime and Jazz Festival in Hungary. He is a protege of legendary 1950s recording artist Johnny Maddox, and has played at the historic Strater Hotel in Durango, Colorado, for over ten years. For the first time he is visiting Australia and we are excited to present this very special ragtime concert for you.

Adam will perform an assortment of ragtime compositions from well-known composers such as Scott Joplin, James Scott and Joseph Lamb from the golden years when ragtime was at its peak in the dance halls. He has also fossicked to find some gems rarely performed and never before played in Australia.
