GRAMMY AWARD NOMINEE: Maria Muldaur will perform at Borneo Jazz 2011.

Maria Muldaur is often referred to as America’s First Lady of Roots Music.

From her teen years as part of the folk revival of the sixties, to her recent ‘bluesiana’ efforts, Maria has released more than 35 records that have been embraced by fans and critics alike.

She has been garnering many awards and accolades including a Grammy nomination in the Traditional Blues category for her 2005 release ‘Sweet Lovin’ Ol’ Soul’, a ‘Best Adult Alternative Album of the Year’ award by the National Association of Independent Record Distributors for 1992’s ‘Louisiana Love Call’, and many more.
