Episode 113 - Max Hatt and Edda Glass


Max Hatt & Edda Glass are a musical duo who were awarded the Grand Prize at the International Mountain Stage / NewSong Competition. Their music is kinda hard to classify, but it’s kind of jazzy Bossa Nova folk that makes you stop and listen...or at least made me do so. Their first collaboration was a Bossa Nova party band, which took them everywhere from the Pacific Northwest to the Rocky Mountain states and as far south as Santa Fe, NM. They eventually wound up at the Lincoln Center in New York City in 2014.
