About Maria Muldaur

Best known for her seductive '70s pop staple "Midnight at the Oasis," Maria Muldaur has enjoyed a long career as an acclaimed interpreter of just about every stripe of American roots music: blues, early jazz, gospel, folk, country, and R&B. Muldaur is a singer who can sound earthy, impassioned, and easygoing all at once, and her eclectic body of work testifies to the adaptability of her voice and her musical personality, as well as her ability to collaborate with musicians she respects. Muldaur's self-titled 1973 solo debut remains her most popular effort and a solid summary of what she can do, but investigating her detours into spirituals (1980's Gospel Night), vintage jazz and blues (1983's Sweet and Slow), the music of New Orleans (1992's Louisiana Love Call), and even children's music (2010's Barnyard Dance: Jug Band Music for Kids) will prove rewarding.
