Ragtime, Protégé of the late Eubie Blake
“Mr. Waldo is worth the price of a ticket.” - New York Times
Ragtime expert & stride pianist, Terry Waldo is the protégé of the late Eubie Blake. He has produced over 40 albums and written the definitive book on ragtime, This is Ragtime - republished recently by Jazz At Lincoln Center with a new introduction by Wynton Marsalis. His 26-part radio series with the same title, produced for National Public Radio, fueled the 1970's ragtime revival. He may currently be heard on his new Podcast -This Is Ragtime. Come on by to hear Terry tickling the keyboard in Bryant Park or performing with Terry Waldo’s Gotham City Band at the Zinc Bar on Wednesday nights and throughout the 34th Street District all summer long!
