Great to read all the stuff about Maria - she has an excellent new CD of jug band music called Maria Muldaur & her Garden of Joy Jug Band.

The Geoff Muldaur & Texas Sheiks CDs has continued to get really good reviews, and much to my amusement-horror-bewilderment, it apparently is inching up the "Americana" chart.  First time anything I've recorded has been on any chart.  If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, you can find info plus links to some of the cuts here:  http://www.ericandsuzy.com/sheiks.htm

We will be playing in Austin Texas and Berkeley California in early Dec. I'll post details on the "Gigs" forum.

Which, in interest of full disclosure, you also play on.

I've been listening to them both for a several weeks now--and I highly recommend both. Maria and Dan Hicks do a duet that is hilarious. Great stuff--Well done, Suzy!--and thanks again for the heads up.

Yes - the Dan Hicks duet is my favorite cut on Maria's album too (and I don't play on it!)  I wish they'd do a whole album of duets, they are soooo funny together and so amazingly musical at the same time.

If you are in the SF Bay Area:  Maria Muldaur is playing at Freight & Salvage this Friday night Nov. 27 (the night after Thanksgiving) with her Garden of Joy Jug Band, and Eric & I will sit in some too.  Maria's band consists of the Gallus Brothers, Lucas and Devin, 2 young men from the Northwest who are amazing multi-instrumentalists and also juggle and do acrobatics (I don't know whether they do this in Maria's show) plus Kit Stovepipe, another young man from the Northwest, who is a wonderful resonator guitarist and also plays jug, tub and probably every other instrument, plus Kirk who is also from the Northwest and plays bass.  Sorry I do not have the last names of these fine players.  They just finished a long tour so they should be plenty warmed up by now!

Slack, please feel free to post elsewhere if it seems appropriate.
