Album Notes
This CD showcases a range of syles of Sue Keller, the world's premier ragtime piano player. From the Southern and mid-Western classics to the East-coast cutting contest style known as Stride, punctuated by a handful of contemporary rags as well as a few obscure early folk-blues pieces.

Sue Keller is a performing artist with roots in a lot of different musical styles. Her earliest years were devoted to classical piano and vocal training and choir work as a, believe it or not, 1st soprano.

Out of college in the 80's, Sue worked her way around New England with a variety of bands specializing in Country Rock, doing essentially the same circuit as Bonnie Raitt, where she became affectionately known by the nickname, Licksy, for her blistering piano solos. The 90's brought Sue to NYC where she evolved into a solo club performer and began shifting her focus to jazz and ragtime, and eventually to early Blues. During this period Sue also did a few stints in the NY theater scene as a musical director for a variety of off-Broadway and college productions. Sue presently resides in the Chicago area, appears in Jazz, Blues, and Ragtime festivals world-wide.

Sue Keller is the Artistic Director for the Scott Joplin Festival held annually in Sedalia, Missouri.
