ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Four-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest, Adam Swanson is rapidly becoming known as one of the world's foremost performers and historians of ragtime. He has performed at every major ragtime festival in the United States in addition to appearances at festivals abroad. On this, his second solo disc for Rivermont, he performs a mix of rags, novelties, stride classics, and popular songs -- all of them in his unique, virtuosic arrangements and beautifully recorded on a nine-foot Yamaha grand. 60 minutes.

Adam Swanson is one of the world’s foremost performers of vintage American popular music, including ragtime, early jazz, the Great American Songbook, and more. He holds a bachelor’s in classical piano and a master’s in musicology from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University. Although he is only twenty-six years old, Adam has been a featured performer and lecturer at ragtime and jazz festivals across the United States, and he is the only four-time winner of the World Championship Old-Time Piano Playing Contest. He made his New York debut in Carnegie Hall at the age of nineteen, where he performed with Michael Feinstein. Adam has performed at the Cinecon Classic Film Festival in Hollywood and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., as well as in Hungary, Switzerland, and Australia. He has worked with such musicians as Toronto’s John Arpin, former rock star Ian Whitcomb, and legendary 1950s recording artist Johnny Maddox, who was one of Adam’s greatest influences. Adam performs every summer at the historic Strater Hotel in Durango, Colorado. Visit Adam online: www.adamgswanson.com.
