The Blind Boone Ragtime Festival returns to Columbia this Sunday, honoring a local and national legend. The festival features concerts and seminars from world-class ragtime performers both Monday and Tuesday. It is named for John William “Blind” Boone, a ragtime musician who lived in Columbia around the turn of the twentieth century and helped pioneer the genre.
