ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Rhythmia is a string band that performs a mix of authentic Ragtime (primarily written & published in Kansas City, their home town), old-time fiddle tunes, and Caribbean music, along with original compositions, to form a variety of old-time folk dance music. As former members of The Etcetera String Band, a well-known Ragtime string band, they have performed and recorded in a variety of musical styles for over 35 years. With The Etcetera String Band, they have recorded and performed across the country at many Ragtime and Folk music festivals, including the Scott Joplin Festival in Sedalia, Missouri, the Ragtime festival on the Goldenrod Showboat in St. Louis, Missouri, and the Festival of American Folklife in Washington, D.C., by invitation of the Smithsonian. They have been featured on a National Public Radio special report on the famous Kansas City dancer “Doc” Brown, were also featured in a PBS-TV special The Cradle of Ragtime, and in concert at Mississippi State University, another PBS -TV special.

Kevin Sanders – Guitar
As a founding member of The Etcetera String Band, Kevin appeared on all four of the band’s highly acclaimed recordings. His interest in music research has led to published articles in the Rag - Times and the Kansas City Rag - Time Revelry. He has given symposiums on Ragtime music and was interviewed for Uniquely Kansas City, a television documentary on the history of the arts in Kansas City, produced by the local PBS station KCPT-TV. Throughout his more than 40 years of writing music, Kevin has composed several songs and instrumental pieces. A folio titled, Pound That Melody! , contains seven of his pieces for piano. Kevin is currently writing a musical titled Armourdale, based on a true story.

Pat Ireland – Violin.
Along with Kevin Sanders, Pat Ireland was a founding member of The Etcetera String Band and appeared on their highly acclaimed debut recording Harvest Hop. Although classically trained, Pat developed an early affinity for earthier forms of music and was a frequent competitor in old-time fiddle contests, of which he has won many. Today, he is a music teacher and a prolific composer who has written in many musical genres. Pat has released Fiddling Legacy, a CD of traditional old-time fiddle tunes and The Original, a CD of his original fiddle tunes. He has performed at the Renaissance Festival in Los Angeles, where he appeared with Ron Wilson, the drummer on the legendary surf hit recording Wipe Out by The Surfaris. A much sought after session musician, Pat has appeared on many local recordings, including a session with George Tomsco, whose band The Fireballs had a hit with the song Sugar Shack, which reached #1 in 1963.

Bob Ault – Mandolin, Five-String Banjo
In addition to the mandolin and banjo, Bob performs on the piano and harp-guitar, a rare instrument of the Ragtime era. He is a composer, arranger, and has entertained everywhere from Carnegie Hall to Japan. Bob has studied thousands of vintage recordings and plays in an authentic style based on the work of musicians who played over 100 years ago. Bob was also a member of the Etcetera String Band and provided music for the off-Broadway show Fables in Slang in New York, based on the short stories of George Ade. For 37 years Bob was an assistant instructor for the History of Ragtime course at Washington University in St. Louis.
