Today's Local Music: Virginia Tichenor

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.
