#54 – Maria Muldaur – Garden of Joy

Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur is best known for “Midnight at the Oasis,” her quirky hit from 1974.  She’s led an eclectic career that’s seen her receive high praise and multiple Grammy nominations for her recent excursions into American roots music.  Her latest CD, Maria Muldaur’s Garden of Joy, is a collection of jug band music reuniting her with John Sebastian of the Lovin’ Spoonful and Dave Grisman; musicians she first played with way back in the early Sixties.  This latest project has just been nominated for yet another Grammy.  Icon Fetch talks with the multi-faceted singer about reuniting with old friends, recording music for children, and the true story behind “Midnight at the Oasis.”
