Maria Muldaur and her Red Hot Bluesiana Band are playing hot, smokin’ New Orleans blues on Saturday, March 3, at 8 p.m. at the Sutter Creek Theater, 44 Main St. in Sutter Creek.
Tickets are $23 in advance and $26 the day of show. Call 209-267-1070 or go to suttercreetheatre.com for information.
Muldaur’s latest blues album “Steady Love” reached No. 1 on the Livings Blues Chart.
Her previous blues CD “Naughty, Bawdy, and Blue” completed the trilogy of award-winning blues albums including her 2006, CD “Heart of Mine” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, and her 2005 CD “Sweet Lovin’ Ol’ Soul” which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Blues Album AND for a Handy Blues Music Award for Acoustic Album of the Year, and Muldaur was nominated for Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year as well. Her 2001 CD “Richland Woman Blues” was nominated for a Grammy also.
As great as her albums are, however, her live performances are simply not to be missed — part infectious fun, part down-home revival and part deeply satisfying antidote to contemporary mass media culture.
