Listen to Dixieland jazz by local musicians every Tuesday and Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at The Ragtime Oriole, 202 Main St. in Marble Falls. Thursday sessions feature owner Richard Golladay on the piano. 

On the third Saturday of each month, The Ragtime Oriole has an additional show, “full blown Dixieland jazz with some of the best trumpet and clarinet performers in the state,” Golladay said. Those performances are 6:30-9:30 p.m. 

Bring your own beverages, including alcoholic drinks. 

Golladay named the establishment after “Ragtime Oriole,” a 1911 classic ragtime song by composer James Scott. Scott’s portrait, along with ragtime composers Scott Joplin and Joseph Lamb, hang on the wall behind the stage.  

Ragtime music was popular in the United States in the late 1800s and early 1900s and influenced jazz music.

Golladay said a coffee and wine bar is coming “soon” to the Main Street venue.
