This week blues goddess Maria Muldaur was our special guest on “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight.” Since her megahit, “Midnight at The Oasis,” Maria has produced an average of one album a year and received numerous Grammy nominations. Her most recent CD, “Steady Love” shot to #1 on the Living Blues Chart and earned her a nomination for “Best Traditional Female Blues Artist,” from the Blue Foundation
Maria brings our listeners a preview of her new CD, “First Came Memphis Minnie,” which won’t be released until October 9, 2012. The late great Memphis Minnie was a singer and writer of bawdy and soulful songs from the great depression through the end of World War II. Minnie is an inspiration for many modern singers, some of whom appear on Maria’s new CD, and this episode of Carolyn’s show, including Bonnie Raitt, Phoebe Snow, and Koko Taylor, etc.
This week’s episode of “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight” also features the music of Jack Tempchin, Laurie Melan, Mariachi El Bronx with a Bob Dylan cover, Maxwell Mosher, The Jellybricks, and Ruby Free.
