Max will be appearing in the Band and Banjo Competitions at the 2022 Freshgrass Music Festival.
The Max Schwartz Band is Max’s primary songwriting and bandleading exploit in the acoustic/bluegrass domain.
The band features Max’s longtime collaborator Carolyn Kendrick, a singer-songwriter and producer from Nashville on fiddle; Tim Watson, a Miami-based guitarist and improvised-music composer, and Max’s bandmate from the Stamps Jazz Quintet at the University of Miami; Pele Greenberg, a drummer, guitarist, and songwriter who plays jazz, pop, or folk tunes on any night in New York; and Noah Harrington, a Boston-based bassist (try saying that three times), recording artist and composer who appeared last year with his group, Noah y Maurizio’s Acoustic Nomads.
Max Schwartz is a musician, composer, and teacher originally from Boston (currently based in Needham, MA) and is highly acclaimed as both a bluegrass and jazz musician. He has been called “an acoustic master” by the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, has won Downbeat Awards for both performance and composition, is a two-time member of the GRAMMY® Jazz Combo, and was the winner of the 2019 Rockygrass Banjo Competition.
