Summer Concert Series: Maria Muldaur – sings the blues
July 17 @ 7:00 pm
NOTE: Tonight’s MURIA MULDAUR show has been moved indoors due to inclement weather. Join us at King Neptune’s Pub, 1 Kurosaka Lane (about 2 blocks south of the park)
Maria Muldaur is best known world-wide for her 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis,” which received several Grammy nominations. And this year she’s been nominated again in the Best Traditional Blues category for her 41st album ‘DON’T YOU FEEL MY LEG ~ The Naughty Bawdy Blues of Blue Barker.’
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. She began 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 2011 Maria released Steady Love, a contemporary electric Blues album that reflects the kind of music she loves to perform live – what she calls “Bluesiana Music” – her own brand of New Orleans-flavored Blues, R&B and “Swamp Funk.”
