plus John Reilly
Maria Muldaur is best known world wide for her 1974 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 39-year career could best be described as a long and adventurous 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 and Appalachian "old timey" music.
In the 39 years since "Midnight At The Oasis," Maria has toured extensively worldwide, and has recorded 39 solo albums covering all kinds of American roots music, including gospel, R&B, jazz and big band, before settling comfortably into her favorite idiom, the blues. Often joining forces with some of the top names in the business, Maria has recorded and produced on-average an album per year, several of which have been nominated for Grammy and other awards.
Singer songwriter John Reilly, the voice of Boy on a Dolphin and Acoustic Angels will be opening the show. He will be performing an intimate acoustic set showcasing songs from his latest album solo album Zebulon and playing favourites from his Tea Cozy Hat, and Boy on Dolphin albums. Some of the new songs are now being heard on BBC Radio 2 and stations all over the world. John will be joined on stage by pianist, songwriter and composer Lewis Nitikman from Vancouver, Canada.
