Scott Joplin is famous for "The Entertainer" and "Maple Leaf Rag", and "Peacherine Rag" is also well known. It was used in the movie "The Legend of 1900".
When I looked up "Peacherine", it is a coined word (and fruit) combining peach and nectarine. Such a sweet and cute work progresses from basic rag time to jazz style. It's a fun piec, and would also be appropriate as an opener.
