A very pleasant Wednesday to you. Here’s a short & sweet, two-minute slice of near-perfect music to mellow your hectic minds. Guitar legend, Chet Atkins performing a Scott Joplin classic, “The Entertainer,” in 1975.
Joplin’s turn-of-the-century ragtime music, and “The Entertainer” in particular, experienced an upsurge in popularity in the 1970s. This was mostly due to the Oscar-winning film, The Sting (1973) using a number of his tunes. Enjoy this melding of two masters.
