Montclair, NJ - The Montclair Historical Society will present an evening of ragtime music composed by native son Joseph F. Lamb on Thursday, October 11 at 7:30 P.M. at St. Luke's Church, 73 So. Fullerton Avenue, Montclair. Internationally renowned ragtime pianist Sue Keller will perform with vocals provided by Joseph Lamb's daughter, Patricia Lamb Conn.

Sue Keller, director of the International Ragtime Music Festival in Sedalia, MO, is recognized as one of the world's top ragtime pianists. Her appearances have ranged from the grand opening of Faneuil Hall Marketplace in Boston Harbor, to the fabled Mikado nightclub in Tokyo, and even the Great Wall of China.

Mike Farrelly, Montclair's Township Historian, will join the two performers for a Q&A discussion about Joseph Lamb's life and music. Lamb is remembered as one of the “Big Three" composers of classic ragtime music, along with Scott Joplin and James Scott. Farrelly will also provide a glimpse into Montclair's past during the early 1900's when Lamb's compositions, along with the ragtime genre, were most popular.
