SCOTT JOPLIN AROUND 1900

Description

Scott Joplin is known as the father of ragtime music. He was a Texas native who in fact did play the piano in Joplin, Missouri in the 1890s at a Joplin saloon called the House of Lords. It was in this venue that Joplin native Percy Wenrich got to hear Mr. Joplin. Wenrich would go on to be a noted ragtime composer himself. Scott Joplin is pictured around 1900, by which time he was playing music in Sedalia, Mo.
