Event Details

Maria Muldaur’s 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis” has enshrined her in the hearts of baby boomers everywhere. But despite her considerable pop music success, her over 50-year career could best be described as an adventurous odyssey through the various forms of American roots music.

During the folk revival of the early '60s, she began singing early blues, bluegrass and Appalachian music, starting her recording and touring career in 1960’s with the Even Dozen Jug Band and the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band. In the 42 years since “Midnight at the Oasis,” Maria has toured extensively worldwide and has recorded 40 solo albums. Recently, she has recently shifted her focus to her favorite idiom - the blues.

Maria Muldaur

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). 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 GRAMMYs and other awards.
