Remember her? Remember the rest of the album?

I certainly remember the tune from that era, but I wouldn't have been able to recall her name for love nor money.

She's still performing, which is kind of nice to know.

I didn't have that album, but definitely remember that song. She was on an album I had called "Mud Acres", with the Traums, Bill Keith, Jim .Rooney, (your former boss,Tom) John Herald, and others from the Woodstock area.
I used to play a guitar tune I learned from a Tom Rush album called "Mole's Moan" written by Maria's then(?)groom Geoff Muldaur.

Maria is still one of the hardest working performers in the music business, and is on tour somewhere right now, or else she probably would have been around for the Berkeley Old-Time Music Convention, which is in full swing as I write this. She still occasionally plays old-time tunes on the fiddle with some encouragement, especially Gaither Carlton tunes. She spent a lot of time in her youth visiting with the Watson clan in North Carolina, and Doc's father-in-law, Gaither Carlton, was a kind of much-loved fiddle mentor to her.

When Maria's in town, she occasionally comes to parties at our house, usually getting into a great old-time singing session of some sort, often with Suzy Thompson, at whose house I first met Maria. If she comes through your town, I highly recommend getting out to see her, and strike up a conversation with her about old-time or jug band music if you get the chance!

Saw her here in Tokyo a couple years back with the Jim Kweskin Jug Band reunion (ex-husband Geoff, Bill Keith, Richard Greene all part of the band), a great show.

Ah, John Gribble, that's so nice to hear. 

Thank you.

Wow, thank you all.  I just felt like Maria Muldaur (nee Maria Grazia Rosa Domenica D'Amato), because I love her voice, simple as that!

I've been in love with her voice since the days when she was still Maria D'Amato. Her singing made Kweskin's Jug Band worth hearing. Before she joined I found them rather dull. A few years ago I found a copy of an album made vy her first Jug Band - a NYC group - I think they were called The Even Dozen Jug Band. The only tracks worth hearing feature Maria.

I didn't like the songs that garnered her some fame there for a while, and avoided listening to her. Was astonished years later to learn of her deep background and love for old Appalachian traditional music as well as jug band/Piedmont-ish style blues. There are some wonderful vintage LPs of that stuff with MM on them. I agree about her wonderful voice and vocal style.

I remember her from the Kweskin Jug Band, Midnight at the Oasis was a hit, but my favorite is still her version of "I'm a Woman." She did a great children's CD years ago that I got for my daughter.

Great voice.

I am a fan of the Jim KJweskin jug band, and love pretty much ANY jug band.

Did you know that her brother, Fox Muldauer, spent several years chasing UFOs?

I've enjoyed just about everything she's done over the years, with or without her husband and others, *except* "Midnight at the Oasis." That one always just kind of grated on my ears.

From an entirely different song:

"Down at the oasis, the Arabs were picking their dates..."
