# Invited and performed at "21th Zehnders Ragtime Festival" in MI, USA."


Honored to be invited by the famous American "Ragtimist", Mr. Robert Milne, I had joined and been playing Ragtime Guitar at "21th Ragtime Festival at Zehnders of Frankenmuth".

It's one my great experiences and journey of Musical life, and I'm so grateful to all the people I met there, especially lots of wonderful musicians... and really thank you - Bob-san!!
