Platinum recording artist Maria Muldaur will bring her blend of blues, country and jazz to Greenwich Library's Cole Auditorium on Sunday, October 3, at 3:30 p.m. as part of the Peterson Concert Series.
Muldaur's career spans more than 40 years of working with some of the most famed American musicians, such as Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield, Stevie Wonder and Duke Ellington. She dubbed her blend of blues, R&B and Louisiana music "bluesiana."
Muldaur ignited her solo career with her most recognizable song "Midnight at the Oasis." Her first recorded song "I'm a Woman," became the anthem of feminine power and sexuality.
Born and raised in Greenwich Village, Muldaur was exposed to bluegrass, jazz, blues and gospel music from a very young age and cultivated affinity for American roots music. Her career started with the Even Dozen Jug Band, before she migrated to Boston and joined the Jim Kweskin Jug Band. Muldaur started her solo career in the 1970s.
She continues to create music, releasing her latest album "Yes We Can!" in 2008. AllMusic.com lists 26 albums in Maria's discography which reflect this abiding affection for the bedrock styles of American song. Seeing her perform live is a joyful experience as she invests each song with considerable energy and sheer personality.
The concert is free and open to the public through the support of the Peterson Foundation. Doors open at 3 p.m. For more information, please contact David Waring at (203) 622-7917.
