I would say that Boogie-Woogie was the bad little boy of the rag family who wouldn't study. I heard crude beginnings of it in the back streets of New Orleans, in those early years following 1904, but they were really back streets... such music never got played in 'gilded palaces' - Roy Carew, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

  The third annual Olympia Old Time Music Festival takes place February 17th through the 20th.  I haven't been before, but I will be attending this year and teaching a beginners finger-picking guitar workshop.

Looks like a good time (I'm on the wrong side of the continent). Worth pointing out that there's also what looks at first glance like a pretty good oldtime lyrics songbook in PDF format on their site at http://olyoldtime.org/songbook.pdf

On the website it says "enjoy a long weekend of jamming, dancing, learning, and breaking rule #1 1930's style ..."

At the risk of having a "duh" moment, what is Rule #1?

I wrote them and got this answer:

----------

It is a joke.  Rule number 1 is "No fun allowed."   It is poking fun at certain typed of people who either don't like to have fun or don't want you to have fun.

-----------

I guess they're trying to give the same idea as H.L. Mencken's definition of Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.
