Geoff Muldaur is one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the American, folk, blues and folk-rock scene of the 1960's centred in Greenwich Village, Cambridge and Woodstock.
Geoff can count some of the biggest names in music among his fans. Richard Thompson has declared that ‘ there are only three white blues singers, and Geoff Muldaur is at least two of them’, whilst Loudon Wainwright lll is on record as stating that ‘Geoff Muldaur was and still is one of my musical heroes.’
With his magical voice and singular approach to American music, Geoff continues to tour and record. His latest recordings have met with high critical acclaim and feature Geoff’s unusually crafted interpretations of classic, oftentimes obscure, American material as well as his own unique compositions.
He made a number of highly influential recordings as a founding member of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and Paul Butterfield’s Better Days as well as collaborations with others such as Bonne Raitt , Eric Von Schmidt and Jerry Garcia. His recording of ‘Brazil’ provided the seed for, and featured in, Terry Gilliam’s film of the same title.
