Mulligan Stew October 10th 2015 – Maria Muldaur Interview


Not long ago Maria Muldaur realized it had been 40 years since “Midnight at the Oasis,”.  She  had released 40 albums in her career.
“Instead of going into the studio to do the 41st, I should take the time to reflect and celebrate. It has been an amazing musical adventure.”
She’s currently on the road doing  her “Way Past Midnight” multimedia show.

It’s a mix of old photos and moments in her life. She adds the music and the stories and you’re left with a fabulous evening.
“I am always most excited about the newest material I am doing, and other songs get put back on the shelf or dropped. Fans call out for old favorites, but we just don’t have time to do them. This time we are pulling them out, along with doing up-to-date songs. Loyal fans have almost universally told me, ‘This is the best show of all time we have ever seen you do.’ They call it an ‘informance,’ since they are also learning a little bit from the stories.”
Muldaur lives in the San Francisco Bay area, where she often performs when not on tour. She estimates she does about 150 shows a year. In 2013, she appeared as a special guest with Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings, and toured with the Campbell Brothers, a sacred steel gospel group, for their presentation “Spirit & the Blues.”

She was a member of the Jerry Garcia Band in the late ’70s.
Maria  says that her type of American roots music is having “a huge resurgence. There are more blues, old-time music and fiddle festivals than ever. When I want to find extra musicians, they are all touring Europe.” She credits the film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” with starting a revival of the music her generation learned from old 78 records.
“There is no help from the aboveground media. You won’t read about it in People magazine. But young people hear it after decades of junk music and wonder, ‘What’s that sound?'”
Our second guest is someone you may have heard of Allison Brock. Al and her friends have organized next weekend’s Wide Cut Weekend
 Roots music is a big part of our identity, so let’s build this thing. Let’s celebrate our homegrown artists. Let’s bring this thing home. Just sayin’. . . #yeefreakinhaw
