It's not ragtime, but Sadie Green Sales Ragtime Jugband played a soulful rendition of Steve Goodman's "City of New Orleans" late in their last set. This is a pair of performers who play some particularly odd instruments, such as a washboard and "mountain cello" (a strung broom on a washtub), but this song they played with perfectly ordinary guitar and flute.

Of course, they also play loads of ragtime, as well as backwoods jugband styles. It's fun to watch, and I'm glad I came for the second and third sets!
