Today’s featured event:
Hear Geoff Muldaur at 8 tonight at the Blue Door, 2805 N McKinley. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Muldaur is known as one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the folk, blues and folk-rock scenes centered in Cambridge, Mass. and Woodstock, N.Y. During the 1960s and ’70s, Muldaur made a series of highly influential recordings as a founding member of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and the Paul Butterfield’s Better Days group, as well as collaborations with his then-wife Maria and other notables, including Bonnie Raitt, Eric Von Schmidt and Jerry Garcia. He left the stage and recording world in the mid-1980s for a working sabbatical but continued to hone his craft out of the public eye. He composed scores for film and television and produced off-beat albums for the likes of Lenny Pickett and the Borneo Horns and the Richard Greene String Quartet. His definitive recording of “Brazil” provided the seed for – and was featured in – Terry Gilliam’s film of the same title.
