Maria Muldaur is besat known world wide for her '74 mega-hit "Midnight at the Oasis", which received several Grammy nominations, and enshrined her forever in the hearts of Baby Boomers everywhere, but despite her considerable Pop Music success, her 46 year career could best be described as a long and rambling odyssey through the various forms of American Roots Music. During the folk revival of the early '60s, she began exploring and singing early Blues, Bluegrass, Appalachian "Old Timey" music, beginning her recording career in '63 with the Even Dozen Jug Band and shortly thereafter, joining the very popular Jim Kweskin Jug Band and touring, & recording with them throughout the '60s.
In the 36 years since “Midnight At The Oasis”, Maria has toured extensively worldwide, and has recorded 38 solo albums covering all kinds of American Roots music, from Jazz, to Big Band, to Gospel, to Children’s Music, settling comfortably into her favorite idiom, the Blues, in recent years. Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, Maria has recently recorded and produced an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammies and other awards.
Hailed as, “The eternal hipster, purveyor of the drollest and most swingin' tunes the rock generation ever enjoyed” (Minneapolis Star Tribune), Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks have hijacked the holidays and created a Christmas album you’ll enjoy all year long. Set for release on October 12, 2010 through Surfdog Records, Crazy For Christmas is classic Hot Licks, full of the same dry wit and musical brilliance that has defined Dan Hicks’ music for the past four decades and established him as one of American music’s true cult heroes.
