Maria Muldaur's Christmas
Arena Theater will present acclaimed folk-blues singer Maria Muldaur on Saturday, December 18 at 8:00 PM.
Muldaur will be performing a special Christmas show with her "A Team" of top notch jazz musicians, "no sappy, overdone, pedestrian Christmas toons here, folks! Only my special collection of hip, rare holiday gems in the Blues & Jazz idioms," the artist says.
Muldaur has a music history firmly planted in American roots music. She began her career in the early 1960s as Maria D'Amato, performing with John Sebastian, David Grisman, and Stefan Grossman as a member of the Even Dozen Jug Band. Later she joined Jim Kweskin & His Jug Band as a featured vocalist and occasional violinist. During this time, she was part of the Greenwich Village scene that included Bob Dylan, and some of her recollections of the period, particularly with respect to Dylan, appear in Martin Scorsese's 2005 documentary film, No Direction Home. She married fellow Jug Band member Geoff Muldaur, and after the Kweskin outfit broke up, the two of them produced two albums. She began her solo career when their marriage ended in 1972, but retained her married name.
Since her seductive '70s chart debut Midnight at the Oasis, Muldaur has become an acclaimed interpreter of just about every stripe of American roots music: blues, early jazz, gospel, folk, country, R&B, and so on. Muldaur truly came into her own as a true roots music stylist during the '90s, when she developed a particular fascination with the myriad sounds of Louisiana. On the string of well-received albums that followed, Muldaur tied her eclecticism together with the romantic sensuality that had underpinned much of her best work ever since the beginning of her career. Her 2009 CD release, Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy, a Jug Band album, made it into the first round of Grammy nominations for Best Traditional Folk Album of The Year.
