Jeff Barnhart and Eddie Erickson playing piano and banjo
At Mississippi State University, My husband and I toured the Charles H. Templeton, Sr. Music Museum, filled with old record players, music boxes, and a huge collection of ragtime sheet music. We also saw a disk twelve-inches wide perforated with holes, which came from the inside of a music box.
During our two evenings at the Ragtime and Jazz Festival, several performers played the piano or the guitar, and a student played a soprano saxophone solo. Jeff Barnhart and Kris Tokarski played separately and together on two pianos.
Jeff Barnhart played the piano for two silent movies while we laughed at the antics of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. One cabinet filled with ragtime and jazz sheet music is shown below.
