The Life and Music of Winifred Atwell, performed by Jan Preston.
The incredible story of a virtuostic piano player and entertainer, who was one of the
most remarkable stage personalities of her time. With over 20 million album sales, she made boogie woogie
and ragtime music popular in Britain and Australia from the 50’s through to the 80’s.
Her best-known (and crowd-pleasing favourite!) piece of ragtime music is “The Black and White Rag”,
released as a single that sold over a million copies, which gained new popularity when it was used as the theme music t0 the
UK TV series “Pot Black” .
