The RagFest Ensemble - Northern and Southern California

Spearheaded by pianist MICHAEL CHISHOLMTHE RAGFEST ENSEMBLE features four top-shelf ragtime musicians, most of whom are familiar to our audiences from previous festivals. The ensemble features Michael on piano, JULIA RILEY on flute, BOB PINSKER on violin and ANDREW BARRETT on percussion. Their repertoire features a generous serving of rarely heard and in some cases obscure yet outstanding rags pulled from Michael’s extensive collection of vintage sheet music as well as cakewalks, marches and rags from the ragtime era up through the 1930s. This is The RagFest Ensemble’s debut performance at its namesake event, RagFest.
