"Let Me Call
You Sweetheart" is a
ragtime tune that is synonymous
with historic Vicksburg.
Played by the
calliopes of visiting
steamboats and resounding through the audience in every Gold in the
performance, this song is as Vicksburg
as the hills and hollers.
This rendition is
"Perfessor" Bill Edwards of Virginia.

explained our project, renowned national ragtime artist Bill Edwards was
excited to grant us license to use his calliope version of this popular tune
as our web site theme. A native of California, his music sounds as though
it was born on Washington Street in the early 1900s.
