Ragtime Oriole Marble Falls Texas

Historic Main Street Marble Falls, Texas

~

The Ragtime Oriole, at 202 Main Street, Marble Falls Texas will open in 2020. 

We will feature, at various times during the week, piano ragtime music from the period 1898 to 1920 (sometimes accompanied by violin), traditional jazz, dixieland, classical, and perhaps bluegrass music. The focus is historic music, and not contemporary music.

About

The Venue

~

Located on Historic Main Street in Marble Falls, the historic 100 year old building is awaiting renovations that will feature a coffee shop, a performance stage, decor and music that will transport customers back in time to a pre-“Post Modern” era.

What is Ragtime?

Ragtime is the style of music that was the most popular music in America between 1898 and 1918.  Many rags have a distinctive form of syncopation, but many can sound almost classical.  It is certainly not “rinky-tink”music.  In fact, many rags are played slowly, and some have an almost haunting beauty.

Ragtime had a renewed interest following release of the 1973 movie “The Sting”, which featured some of Scott Joplin’s rags.

Although most people haven’t been exposed to it, and it is rarely played, The Ragtime Oriole will insure that many of the most famous rags of the ragtime era  are routinely played. 

Other historic music will be performed in our building also, including traditional jazz, dixieland, classical chamber music, and perhaps Barbershop and Bluegrass music.

The Coffee Shop

~

Our plans at the Ragtime Oriole are to provide a wide variety of coffee drinks and other beverages. Whether you take it away or stay and listen to the tunes, we will have something for you!


We hope to have an atmosphere that encourages people to get comfortable, work from their laptops, read, or just take a break from the frantic world.


We also hope to encourage local piano and other music students to host recitals. We will offer a $100 scholarship to any piano student under the age of 18 who memorizes and performs Scott Joplin’s “Maple Leaf Rag” on our stage (one time per person, of course). 

Special Events

The Ragtime Oriole building will be available for special events and receptions as scheduling permits.
