At Krannert Uncorked, Stage 5 is the crossroads to gather, make connections, and try a new wine. This week's performer is Faye Ballard who started playing ragtime music at the early age of 10 from former piano player Les Cripe. Ballard entered the World Old-Time Piano Playing Championship and Festival by the age of 12, and has since been a five-time finalist. She currently serves as a contest coordinator and premiered in the 2009 documentary, "The Entertainers." Ballard is employed by the University of Illinois Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning as an office manager and enjoys performing in her free time. Come listen to Faye's performance!
