"This item is part of the Folkways archives.  The original liner notes from the LP are included."

In a profession dominated by men, a few women pianists found employment playing and arranging music for piano rolls from 1890 until the 1920s. The women represented on this album were exceptionalnot just as members of a barely-visible minority, but as virtuoso performers, arrangers, and vaudevillians.
