Dear Patrons, Supporters, and Newcomers of The New Orleans Ragtime Festival,
I hope this message finds you well. Regrettably, I must extend my sincerest apologies for the delay in announcing this year’s festival lineup. As many of you may already know, our longstanding supporter, the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park (commonly known as the National Park Service), has been unable to sponsor this year’s event due to constraints related to partial government funding. This sponsorship traditionally covered five performances, and its absence has significantly impacted our ability to finalize the festival lineup in a timely manner.

In light of these circumstances, we find ourselves in urgent need of your support through donations to ensure the success of this beloved event. Despite the challenges we’ve faced, I am pleased to announce that we have managed to assemble all four days of stellar programming for the festival. Rest assured, these performances promise to be nothing short of spectacular, showcasing the rich tapestry of ragtime music that defines our festival. Your contributions will not only enable us to compensate our talented musicians but also ensure the continued vitality of The New Orleans Ragtime Festival for years to come.

Once again, I extend my deepest apologies for any inconvenience caused by the delay in announcing this year’s lineup. Your understanding and support during this challenging time are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your unwavering commitment to The New Orleans Ragtime Festival.

Warm regards,
Tonya Excho
