Old Flat Top presents
& HER HOT BLUESIANA BAND
Maria Muldaur is best known world wide for her ’74 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis”, which received several Grammy nominations, and enshrined her forever in the hearts of Baby Boomers everywhere, but despite her considerable Pop Music success, her 46 year career could best be described as a long and rambling odyssey through the various forms of American Roots Music. During the folk revival of the early ’60s, she began exploring and singing early Blues, Bluegrass, Appalachian “Old Timey” music, beginning her recording career in ’63 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band and touring, & recording with them throughout the ’60s.
In the 37 years since “Midnight At The Oasis”, Maria has toured extensively worldwide, and has recorded 38 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots music, from Jazz to Big Band to Gospel to Children’s Music, settling comfortably into her favorite idiom, the Blues, in recent years. Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, Maria has recorded and produced an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammies and other awards.
Her critically acclaimed 2001 release “Richland Woman Blues” was nominated for a Grammy and named Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year.
