The 2021 INTERNET Festival

The Scott Joplin International Ragtime Foundation (SJIRF) presents its fifth internet-based concert (SSN5) to support artists with limited live music options due to Covid-19.  This time, SSN is a part of our Internet Ragtime Festival.  We invite you to tune in Friday, June 4 and/Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 8:15 PM (eastern) time to view performances by Virginia Eskin, Lorisa Migachyov (Friday), Barron Ryan and Takashi Hamada (Saturday) along with SJIRF Artistic Director, Bryan Wright who serves as MC.      

In addition, there will be presentations for Lifetime Achievement Awards and Chrysanthemum Awards, recognizing outstanding volunteers to the SJIRF.  Bill Edwards will also moderate symposia on Women of Ragtime (Friday) and Race In Ragtime (Saturday).     

While the SJIRF has provided each performer with a small stipend for their time and talent, any ‘tips’ you can offer will be greatly appreciated by the artists.  Links to tip on-line using a credit card are shown with the YouTube or Facebook posts….or you can do so by clicking HERE. 

Or, you can mail a donation to: Syncopated Saturday Night | Scott Joplin Ragtime Foundation | PO Box 1244 | Sedalia, MO 65302
