Songwriting Workshop with Max Hatt / Edda Glass (FREE) at the Edmonds Library Plaza Room


Please be advised that this event is located at the Edmonds Library Plaza Room 650 Main Street
Edmonds WA 98020

Prior to their Casablanca (1942) cabaret performance at ECA, artists Max Hatt and Edda Glass will walk through their particular songwriting process and open the floor for participants to share their own songs for constructive feedback. Songwriters are invited to accompany themselves, bring an accompanist, use a prerecorded backing track, or share a complete recording. (For songs with lyrics, please bring several printed lyric sheets.) This program will take place in the Edmonds Plaza Room, 650 Main Street, with the generous partnership of the Edmonds Arts Commission. Max Hatt / Edda Glass’s appearance is made possible with funding from IMTour.


Max Hatt / Edda Glass have "an incomparable spook” (Nashville Scene) and a "unique sound" (Larry Groce, NPR) that's taken them across the county from NPR Mountain Stage to NYC's Lincoln Center, DC's Kennedy Center, and the Sundance Film Festival. Praised for her "impeccable vocal command" (PopMatters) and compared to a gamut of singers from Astrud Gilberto to Billie Holliday, Glass's voice ultimately "one of a kind... you cannot confuse her with another artist" (New York Theatre Guide). Hatt's equally distinctive guitar work combines the harmonic innovations of jazz and classical with the melodic resonance of folk, creating music that's "subtly poignant, elegantly funky, and haunting without trying to be" (Nels Cline, Wilco). Together with Glass's literate lyrics, this Jazz Americana evokes the grandeur of the western landscape, telling intimate stories of little people on great plains, and leaving audiences with a feeling both light and deep. For more information, visit
