Festival XXI Performer Pictures
The 21st annual West Coast Ragtime Festival will be held November 16-18, 2007 at the Red Lion's Sacramento Inn in Sacramento, California.  Below is the Photo Gallery of the performers. For biographical information click on the performer's name or photo. As other performers are added to the lineup the page will be updated.
It is with great sadness that we tell you John Arpin passed away November 8, 2007. He was to have been a performer at this year's festival. The festival is being dedicated to his memory and his many contributions to ragtime. He will be greatly missed. His wife, Mary Jane, has put together a 'blogspot' about John's life at  http://johnandmaryjane.blogspot.com.
