Muldaur got her start in the early ‘60s in the Greenwich Village folk scene with the Even Dozen Jug Band. That group featured, among others, noted mandolin player David Grisman, said a Kennett Flash press release.

Through Muldaur’s connection with Grisman, and because of her solo success, she would spend time as an opening act for the Grateful Dead in the mid ‘70s, eventually joining them as a backup vocalist for a time. She also spent time in the Jerry Garcia Band, the release said.

It is, however, Muldaur's vast solo catalogue that has cemented her into pop culture.  With over 40 albums, starting with her eponymous debut in 1973, which featured “Midnight at the Oasis,” Muldaur has drifted between folk, pop, jazz, R&B, gospel, blues and more.

Her 2005 release "Sweet Lovin' Ol' Soul" was nominated for both a Blues Music Award and a Grammy in the traditional blues category.  In the past 10 years, Muldaur has released eight different albums, including her 40th, a tribute to her blues hero Memphis Minnie featuring performances by Bonnie Raitt, Phoebe Snow, Koko Taylor, Rory Block and more, the release said.

This will be Muldaur's first performance at The Kennett Flash in more than four years. Mojo Stu, an American roots and blues artist, will be a special guest.
