Emmy-winning bluesman Geoff Muldaur stops by to share his musical journey and works: from his years with the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, his collaberation with ex-wife Maria Muldaur, and later the legendary Paul Butterfield, to his more recent work playing, arranging and producing classic blues albums with several super groups.  

Geoff talks about how his song "Brazil" inspired the classic movie by Terry Gilliam,"Brazil" and shares the many adventures and inspirations that took him from New Orleans to Cambridge, Woodstock, Detroit and the world.

You're going to love the music and story of the man who can accurately be coined The Beethoven of Blues and who even recorded on Beethoven's label, Geoff Muldaur.

Music in the interview: "Brazil" from Pottery Pie, various songs from The Jim Kweskin Jug Band, Paul Butterfield's Better Days, Private Astronomy: A Vision of the music of Bix Beiderbecke, Texas Sheiks, and The Secret Handshake.  (the music of Jim Robinson is also played during the New Orleans discussion.)
