LOS ANGELES, CA – Singer Maria Muldaur has earned yet another Grammy nomination — her third for Stony Plain Records, the Edmonton-based roots music label.
The nomination, in the “Best Traditional Folk Album” category, is for Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy, a fun-filled collection of jug band material that hearkens back to her very first recordings with the Even Dozen Jug Band and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band in the early ’60s.
It’s the third album — out of five on Stony Plain — to be nominated for the singer, who first came to prominence with her massive 1973 hit, “Midnight at the Oasis.” Other Stony Plain albums by the singer that earned Grammy nominations were Richland Woman Blues (2001) and Sweet Lovin’ Ol’ Soul (2005).
Maria Muldaur & Her Garden of Joy includes performances by veteran bluesman Taj Mahal, The Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian, singer/songwriter Dan Hicks and mandolin virtuoso David Grisman. Subtitled Good Time Music for Hard Times, the album was released at the height of the U.S. recession, and includes two old songs from the 1920s that Muldaur rediscovered, “The Panic Is On” and “Bank Failure Blues.”
