see web site

Mark your calendar for the 14th Annual Charles H. Templeton Ragtime and Jazz Festival & the Gatsby Gala. The Templeton Festival is the only one of its kind in the southeast that brings world-renowned artists and entertainers to campus to perform throughout the weekend, sharing their insights and love of ragtime, jazz, and blues music. Multi-instrumentalist “Blind Boy” Paxton, who has an eerie ability to transform traditional jazz, blues, folk, and country music into the here and now, will make his debut Templeton festival appearance. Also making his first appearance at the festival is ragtime pianist, historian and composer Bill Edwards. Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi, who blend impeccable technique and mature musicality with humor and showmanship, will return this year to share their incredible repertoire of classic piano jazz music. Jeff Barnhart, an internationally renowned pianist, vocalist, arranger, bandleader, recording artist, ASCAP composer, educator and entertainer, will not only serve as the artistic director but also as a featured performer.

As in years past, the festival will begin with Gatsby Gala, a 1920’s inspired fashion show that features clothing designed by MSU Fashion Design and Merchandising students. The clothing will be modeled by members of the MSU Fashion Board. For more information visit http://library.msstate.edu/festival.
