Maria Muldaur and Her Red Hot Bluesiana Band
Old Town Center for the Arts
Maria Muldaur & Her Red Hot Bluesiana Band
Thursday, May 23, 7:00 pm
$25 advance, $28 door, $30 priority
The legendary Maria Muldaur will perform at Old Town Center for the Arts in Cottonwood on Thursday, May 23rd at 7:00 p.m. Backed by her Red Hot Bluesiana Band, Muldaur will showcase many of her chart topping hits including, Midnight at the Oasis.
Most famous for her crossover hit, Midnight at the Oasis in the mid 1970’s, Muldaur was truly an icon in the folk scene that grew out of Greenwich Village in the mid 1960’s. That scene spawned other luminaries including Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and John Sebastian. Her music has evolved over the years from the raw energy of jug band music to the bluesy new release, Steady Love. Old Town Center for the Arts offers up an elegant vintage performing space, perfect for this seasoned performer.”
“Over the last decade, Maria Muldaur has released a quartet of lovingly and authentically produced acoustic blues albums paying tribute to the early blues pioneers and legends, and garnering multiple Grammy and Blues Foundation nominations. Now - detouring from her ongoing exploration of vintage blues - for her latest release, Maria has decided to return to her much beloved New Orleans to record a contemporary electric blues album that reflects the kind of music she loves to perform live - what she calls Bluesiana Music - her own brand of New Orleans -flavored blues, R& B and swamp funk.”
Steady Love contains a compelling mix of contemporary blues tunes written by some of America’s greatest blues poets, including Percy Mayfield, Greg Brown, Eric Bibb, Bobby Charles, Stephen Bruton, Elvin Bishop, Henry Glover and others. Some are debuted here for the very first time, while others are culled from the repertoires of The Staples Singers, Levon Helm, B.B. King, Sugar Pie DeSanto and Arthur Adams.
In addition to some high-powered straight-ahead blues, the album features uplifting, gospel-tinged blues numbers like Bruton’s Walk by Faith, I Am Not Alone, written by Rick Vito, and a stirring, heart wrenching rendition of Mayfield’s perennial classic, Please Send Me Someone to Love; plus high-spirited versions of classic gospel anthems, I Done Made It Up in My Mind and As an Eagle Stirreth in Her Nest. The soul and grit of Steady Love comes from Muldaur’s distinctive, deep and impassioned vocals soulfully preachin’ and shoutin’ the blues, and the greasy grooves laid down by an A-list of New Orleans funk veterans.
Don’t miss Muldaur’s attention-grabbing, widely accessible and soul-satisfying music at the Old Town Center for the Arts.
