Respite with Ragtime

A Weekly Series of Live Online Concerts

Please join us for our weekly “Respite with Ragtime” concerts, featuring a distinguished collection of solo artists and broadcast live on Facebook every Wednesday at 8pm EDT. To attend the concerts, log into Facebook and join the Respite with Ragtime group.

Following the live broadcast, each concert will be available for viewing on Facebook and also on YouTube on the River Raisin Ragtime Revue channel.

A virtual “tip jar” will be available at each live concert, with proceeds going to the performer. Tips are voluntary but greatly appreciated as a way of supporting musicians during this difficult time. You can also donate to the River Raisin Ragtime Revue at any time by visiting the R4 Donations Page.

For convenience, donation information for the next scheduled performer will be posted here as well as on the live broadcast. Donation information for previous performers is listed below the schedule.
