Lyons & Yosco 
Last updated: 27.04.22
George Lyons (harpist) and Bob Yosco (mandolin player) were a vaudeville double act that toured the circuit in the mid- to late ragtime era. Perhaps best known for their The Spaghetti Rag (1910), the first of other Italian titles and centrepiece of their act, which regained popularity in the fifties ragtime revival. The duo also recorded for Victor.
