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 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 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 '60s.
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), 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.
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 songs from some of the most socially
conscious songwriters of the past half century: Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Allen Toussaint, Garth Brooks and
others, and featured her "Women's Voices for Peace Choir," which included: Bonnie Raitt, Joan, Baez, Jane
Fonda, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Holly Near and others.
For her 2009 release, Maria revisited her original Jug Band roots, teaming up with John Sebastian, David Grisman
and Dan Hicks. Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy garnered Maria her 6 th Grammy nomination, and was also
nominated for Best Traditional Blues Album of the Year by The Blues Foundation.
