Honky tonk ragtime. A style. A feeling. A fundamental form of American music. A lost history. So innate to the nation’s music that, done with a honky tonk vibe, it always pleases.
Ragged guitar and songs–picked and strummed. Perfect for wakes, foreclosures, the better saloons, Tuesdays, tastings and garden parties.
CW plays on an old National guitar. It’s honky tonk. The sound works in noisy places. Sometimes people dance or drink or sing along. To the right are snippets of ragtime instrumentals, a small portion of the standards and originals CW plays.
