Les C. Copeland 
Last updated: 30.09.17
Les C. Copeland was an American pianist and composer of popular music. According to Trebor J. Tichenor in his Ragtime Rediscoveries, he was an acquaintance of S. Brunson Campbell ("Ragtime Kid" of the 1890's who studied with Scott Joplin) with whom he grew up in rural Kansas. He became famous as pianist for Lew Dockstader's Minstrels, celebrated in his Dockstader Rag (1912), and went to Paris running his own cabaret. George Gershwin regarded him as one of his favourite pianists.
