- Max Schwartz Is A Finalist In Two Competitions At Freshgrass 2022!I am so excited to be performing in the Band and Banjo Competitions at the 2022 Freshgrass Music Festival! The finalists this year are all great players and writers and I am honored to be among them. I was asked to participate in the 2021 awards but I had to bow out due to injuries I got from a car accident last August. Appearing at the 2022 festival is a dream come true, as I have always wanted to attend the festival and to bring a great band there.
