Guitarist and sitarist Max Katz is an Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology at the College of William and Mary. His book, Lineage of Loss: Counternarratives of North Indian Music (Wesleyan University Press, 2017), draws on a decade of ethnographic and archival research and years of musical apprenticeship to propound a critical re-reading of modern North Indian music history. He is a student of the Khalifa (steward/leader) of the Lucknow-Shahjahanpur Gharana (lineage), Ustad Irfan Khan. As a jazz guitarist, he studied under the legendary Ted Greene. He has performed in a variety of musical settings and venues and will be joined in Flagstaff by long-time friend and collaborator Rob Wallace on drums, local bass wunderkind Dylan Holly, and alto saxophone marvel Andy Grieder.
