Join pianist Peter Bergin for a free lively concert of turn-of-the-century ragtime at 123 Speakeasy.
Michigan-based ragtime artist, Peter Bergin has entertained audiences for over two decades. Peter’s mission is to celebrate life through music and stories, and especially loves sharing the rhythms and history of ragtime piano.
In 2017, Peter debuted his first solo CD, Ragtime In Time, featuring the Big Three of classic ragtime, Scott Joplin, James Scott, and Joseph Lamb. Peter's new crossover project, The American Parlor, explores the intersection between ragtime and American classical music, featuring Louis Moreau Gottschalk, George Gershwin, Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake, among others.
Peter is widely sought-after for school assemblies, libraries, museums, retirement homes, and community concert venues. Playing in the heart of community brings Peter immense joy and satisfaction. He looks forward to bringing ragtime to audiences everywhere as a testament to America's original music.
