ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nan Bostick, of Menlo Park, CA, is the grandniece of Charles. N. Daniels, the ragtime era composer and music publisher who helped Scott Joplin promote his first rag in 1899. As Nan demonstrates in her recordings, her “Uncle Charlie” composed some excellent rags himself along with such well loved standards as: Chlo-e: Song of the Swamp, Moonlight and Roses, She’s Funny That Way, Sweet and Lovely, and You Tell Me Your Dream, I’ll Tell You Mine.

An avid researcher, educator, and writer, Nan always adds a bit of history to the toe-tapping music she plays. She specializes in information about the “Indian Intermezzo” craze inadvertently initiated by her great uncle’s 1901 hit Hiawatha and the ragtime era of Detroit. She contributed the entry on Detroit ragtime composer Harry P. Guy for the Harvard/Oxford African American National Biography and continues tracking down details about ragtime’s women composers, having co-authored the Lexicon of Ragtime’s Women Composers with Dr. Nora Hulse. Nan is currently completing her great uncle’s biography.

Nan's multi-media school programs, concerts, and workshops are warmly received at festivals throughout the country including the West Coast, Scott Joplin, Blind Boone, Lake Superior, Ragtime in Randall, and Indianapolis Classic Ragtime festivals and the new Ragtime Street Fair at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI.

Cuts from Nan's first CD (Dualing at the McCoys) were used by Ken Burns in his PBS documentary "Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson." Nan’s own ragtime compositions are featured on her susequent CDs.
