Today's Local Music: Virginia Tichenor

Mississippi State University Libraries

Back in the day, San Francisco’s Barbary Coast was one of the most lawless places imaginable. That’s changed somewhat, and even Pier 23, the long-time dive bar on the Embarcadero has had a recent makeover. But some things don’t change – such as the sound of ragtime piano, which you’re hearing now, as played by Virginia Tichenor
Virginia Tichenor, now of Oakland, grew up hearing these sounds – her father is a noted ragtime scholar.  You can hear Tichenor at Pier 23 in San Francisco tomorrow, October 1st starting at 5:00pm.
