I think this guy is about the best I've heard at ragtime outside of Guy Van Duser!

I think Lasse would be the first to admit that we all owe a great deal to Ton Van Bergyk who made the seminal recordings of ragtime guitar some 40 years ago on Stefan Grossman's record label. Sadly Ton no longer plays solo fingerstyle guitar but is a woderful swing guitar and banjo player with the Dutch Swing College Jazz band. Apparently despite being a great solo artist he was always extremely nervous and never enjoyed performing in public. I am priviliged to have many of his original recording and a very limited edition (50 copies only) of a tab book of his arrangements. If you really want to know how great Ton was, ask Duck Baker if you get the opportunity.
