Dennis Pash is a ragtime string musician and composer. A review of his work with the Et Cetera String Band says he "flatpicks one accurate melody line after another on his mandolin".

Dennis was the initial researcher into the ragtime history of his home town, Kansas City. He has also researched string ragtime and Kansas ragtime, and has accumulated a vast amount of artifacts and information which he hopes to publish.

For the Rag Time Ephemeralist, he wrote an historical analysis of Joplin rags arranged for mandolins and guitar.

Dennis has composed a dozen rags and other instrumentals. He lectures at schools, folk music societies, and ragtime festivals.
