Geoff Muldaur is one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the folk, blues and folk-rock scenes centered in Cambridge, MA and Woodstock, NY. During the 1960s and ’70s, Geoff 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 then-wife Maria and other notables (Bonnie Raitt, Eric Von Schmidt, Jerry Garcia, etc.).
Geoff left the stage and recording world in the mid-1980s for a working sabbatical but continued, however, to hone his craft, albeit ‘flying beneath radar.’ 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. And his definitive recording of “Brazil” provided the seed for — and was featured in — Terry Gilliam’s film of the same title.
Geoff’s newest albums, The Secret Handshake, Password, Private Astronomy and Texas Sheiks 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.
