Ragtime pianist, composer, actor, and author Max Morath, a native of Colorado Springs, will be inducted in the Colorado Music Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 16 at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
Morath has been credited with the popular revival of ragtime in the 1970s. He toured and performed for more than 60 years, and logged more than 5,000 performances everywhere from Cripple Creek to New York City.
KRCC’s Noel Black spoke with Morath via phone about his lifelong love of rags.
