The 2008 Charles Templeton Ragtime Music Festival was held on March 28-30, 2008 on the campus of Mississippi State University (MSU). The University Libraries and the Charles Templeton Music Museum hosted the 3-day Festival that brought to MSU and the Starkville, MS community some of the most dynamic, entertaining and professional ragtime and boogie woogie performers.

Performers for the 2nd annual Festival included Mimi Blais, Marty Eggers, Frederick Hodges, Brian Holland, Bob Seeley, and Virginia Tichenor. David A. Jasen served as the Master of Ceremonies and Artistic Director. David Reffkin, radio personality, host and producer of "The Ragtime Machine", who interviewed each of the performers during the Festival, brought out little known facts and aspects of the performers' background and career.

This CD is a compilation of the best performances of ragtime music from the 2008 Templeton Festival. Listen as the performers bring to life some of the greatest works of such well known ragtime composers as Joseph Lamb, Scott Joplin, Eubie Blake, and Trebor Tichenor.
