Whimsical Romance

Sarah Ragsdale

In cart Not available Out of stock

Life is like one big romance. This collection of songs is about that romantic story called life, and the ups and downs that come along with it. Based on true stories, mixed with some fantastical exaggerations, this is a fun and playful album of the vast array of emotions that come along with relationships. Written at various stages throughout her life, these are raw stories that have been tried and tested at the piano, even with audience involvement – some relying on percussive snapping and clapping. Feelings range from happiness and pure bliss like in the song “This Kiss”, to a character of craziness and denial like “Next Time”, to more intimate reflections like in “Paranoia”, while others emit strength and moving on. Raw and rustic, catchy and melodic, this album has hints of blues, jazz, and even ragtime.

A Donation for a Song! Bahamas Recovery Efforts 

Make a donation and request a song!

I have made many trips back and forth to the Bahamas while making music on cruise ships over this past year. I am so saddened to learn of the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, and I understand that it will be a long road to recovery.  All Hands and Hearts - Smart Response is one of the many wonderful organizations helping with this recovery and I would love to do what I can to support their efforts in the Bahamas.  They have excellent ratings on charity watch organizations and apparently $.96 of every dollar goes to their programs. 

I'm adding a musical twist to this ... just like we do in the piano bar... make a donation and request a song! In the comments you can write a few songs you think may be good to play and I can choose at least one. I will do my best to make a video of your request and do it live or post! 

I hope we can have some fun with this and do at least a little bit to help recovery efforts in the Bahamas.

Happy 4th of July and Updates! 

Happy Independence Day! This 4th of July I am embarking on a new voyage on Carnival Elation! I will be playing at the piano bar on this ship until September 2.  I can't wait to see what this next adventure brings!

My between-cruises break was filled with awesome learning opportunities traveling through Europe, visiting a fewplaces crucial to the battle on the European front of the military effort in WWII.  Places like Normandy on D-Day and Bastogne.  Those images and stories are still on my mind, especially today when we celebrate America's independence.

Enjoy the day with friends, family, (or crew members)!  What a wonderful time to be alive and able to create and share!

A Sailor's Life for Me! 

I'm currently out at sea playing and singing in the piano bar on Carnival Vista!  It has been an absolutely wonderful experience full of music, fun, great people, and worldly adventure!  The places that I've visited on board the Carnival ships include Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Grand Turk,Mexico, Honduras, Belize, and the Bahamas.  It's been historically and culturally educational.  One of my favorite experiences was visiting Bob Marley's home and playing the family piano!  Watch my instagram: @mzrags for more pics and updates!
