Brun Campbell: The Original Ragtime Kid

Larry Karp



248 pages



The author tells the story of Brun Campbell, one of ragtime's forgotten pioneers. From his childhood in Kansas to his early ramblings in Missouri and his association with Scott Joplin, Campbell's life is one of music, tall tales, and a testament to the ups and downs of the entertainment industry. The text is divided into five sections, each tackling a specific aspect of Campbell's interesting life. They are entitled, When Ragtime Was Young, When the Ragtime Kid Grew Old, Short Pieces, Brun Campbell: An Appreciation, and Recalibrating Brun: The 1940s Musical Composition by Richard Egan. Fans of the genre will find much to appreciate in this text. Illustrations are included. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
