CLAAS is proud, and extremely fortunate, to present Max Hatt and Edda Glass live at the Christina Lake Welcome Centre!!
Edda Glass's award-winning original music and unique interpretations of American and Brazilian standards have "an incomparable spook" (Nashville Scene) and "a unique sound" (NPR). Telling stories of little people on Great Plains, the duo evokes a world that stretches from the beaches of Rio de Janeiro to the prairies of the American west, leaving audiences with a feeling both light and deep. As heard on NPR Mountain Stage, NYC's Lincoln Center, DC's Kennedy Center, and Wilco's Solid Sound Festival.
Praise for Max Hatt/Edda Glass:
Max Hatt and Edda Glass ... are constantly, bravely reinventing themselves... pioneering more deeply into original material, music that I can say without reservation will be substantive and important. [...] Many are the musicians who adhere more closely to the mainstream, aligning their original music with that which has a track record of being entertaining. Few are those who insist that original music is an art, avoid the commodity and immediate gratification that comes from creating that which has proven to be sellable. I am always inspired by visionary charismatics who possess both the courage and the perseverance to pursue their art against the odds, trusting that their labors are not in vain. Max Hatt and Edda Glass are unique voices and rare musicians.
— Eric Funk, PBS host and internationally renowned composer
“Mesmerizing… cinematic folk-jazz”
— ASCAP’s Playback Magazine at Sundance Film Festival
“Edda Glass's voice must be heard to be believed.”
— Nels Cline (Wilco)
