In the winter of 2018, 13 cardboard boxes of American popular music, collected by the late ragtime pianist Johnny Maddox (1927-2018) were carefully shipped to the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra for performance and preservation. On this, Peacherine's fourth album, we perform from this remarkable collection, featuring stunning musical selections by Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, John Philip Sousa, and lesser known composers of the early 1900s. Featuring guest pianist Adam Swanson, vocalist William Edwards, and two never-before released duets featuring Johnny Maddox and Swanson, this CD is sure to delight listeners to celebrate the joy that is America's first popular music: Ragtime!
