This week we welcome Maria Muldaur & Her Red 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 49-year career could best be described as a long and adventurous 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 1963 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band, touring, and recording with them throughout the '60s.
In the 43 years since Midnight at the Oasis, Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 38 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots music, including Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Big Band, before 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 on-average an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammy and other awards.
