Bob Milne Ragtime Pianist
Posted January 21, 2015
Ragtimist Bob Milne returns to the Grand Ledge Opera House on Sunday, January 25, at 3:00 p.m. Considered by many to be the best Ragtime/Boogie-Woogie pianist in the world, Bob Milne specializes in this music style that developed in America in the late 1800s and early 1900s.Although Bob Milne comes from a classical background, having excelled as a French horn virtuoso at the Eastman School of Music, he is completely self-taught as a pianist, playing totally by ear. When he took up saloon piano-playing on the side, he discovered what fun entertaining his listeners could be and how natural it came to him.Bob progressed to the concert stage, acknowledged by many as one of the best pianists of our time. He is now constantly performing across the country (and sometimes beyond) from concert halls to festivals and everything in between. Following the tragedy of 9-11, Bob put together a string of Americana songs from the Revolutionary War to a dissonant representation of the Twin Towers crashing down, which has been played for President Bush, Sr. and his circle of friends several times. Know as a "Ragtimist" (a term he coined), Bob Milne quickly made himself a dedicated student and presenter of this true American musical form. Bob has acquired both a vast repertoire of tunes and an extensive knowledge of their origins. These histories and stories of the piano players who were playing them are anecdotally incorporated into Bob's presentations. He also teaches music history at Florida Atlantic University every winter and conducts a music retreat in Lapeer, Michigan each September.It comes as no surprise that the Library of Congress designated him a "National Treasure" when they documented his expertise for future generations and that the U.S. State Department has utilized him as a "musical Ambassador" in Japan and Switzerland. Bob brings endless enthusiasm, enchanting ease of playing and an engaging manner while telling stories about Ragtime and Boogie Woogie music with warmth and humor.Adult tickets for the concert are $15.00 presale and $17.00 at the door. Students are $10.00. Tickets are available at the Opera House, MacDowell's Floral & Fireplace and TrueValue Hardware. Information is available during regular business hours at 517/627-1443, 517/627-5170, www.gloperahouse.com and www.bobmilne.com.
