THE ENTERTAINER - (Scott Joplin) - Chet Atkins arr. John Knowles

As performed live by Chet Atkins in 1975.

"The Entarteiner" is a piano rag written by Scott Joplin in 1902. The original version was sold as piano rolls in the 1910s. The first recording was by blues and ragtime musicians, the "Blue Boys" in 1928, played on mandolin and guitar. In 1973 the pianist and composer Marvin Hamisch adapted it as the main theme music in the Oscar-winning film "The Sting" with Paul Newman and Robert Redford, making it very popular.

John Knowles arranged it for solo guitar and Chet Atkins played it in the album "Chet Atkins Goes to the Movies"  in 1976, winning in the same year the Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance for "The Entertainer".
