The Friends of Scott Joplin in conjunction with the Scott Joplin House State Historic Site are presenting in concert ragtime pianist "Perfessor" Bill Edwards.

He has played at venues all across the U.S., especially at ragtime festivals. His performances can include ragtime, blues, stride, original compositions, and old-time piano. In fact, he won the World Championship of Old-Time Piano Playing competition in Peoria, IL, in 1991. He hails from Ashburn, VA. The Joplin House is located at 2658 Delmar in St. Louis, MO.
