Maria Muldaur is best known world-wide for her 1974 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 50-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 60's, she began exploring and signing early Blues, Bluegrass and 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 60's. In the 40 years since Midnight at the Oasis, Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 40 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots Music, including Gospel, R&B, Jazz and Big Band (not to mention several award-winning children's albums). She has now settled comfortably into her favorite idiom, the Blues. 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's and other awards. Her critically acclaimed 2001 Stony Plain Records release, Richland Woman Blues, was nominated for a Grammy and by the Blues Foundation as Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year, as was the follow up to that album, Sweet Lovin' Ol' Soul. Her timely 2008 album, Yes We Can!, featured Women's Voices for Peace Choir, which includes: Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, Jane Fonda, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Holly Near and others. In 2009, Maria teamed up with John Sebastian, David Grisman and Dan Hicks. Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy garnered Maria her 6th Grammy nomination and was also nominated for Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year by The Blues Foundation.
