Thanks, everybody! :)

Had a very busy day yesterday; went to the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival in Sedalia, MO, the birthplace of ragtime music - it was a lot of fun, and saw some really great piano players - including one of my favorites, Adam Swanson. This fellow just oozes talent; he started winning world championship piano contests early in his teen years, and played at Carnegie Hall this past February.

Here's a link to a video of him playing:

There are many more Adam Swanson videos on YouTube; if you enjoy "ragtime" music, you should definitely listen to his videos.

Here's a video of him playing Zez Confrey's "Kitten on the Keys", an absurdly difficult yet wonderful performance piece:
