Geoff Muldaur: Password

Geoff Muldaur combs through the arcana of 20th Century American music and breathes new life into long-overlooked gems. Whether a Bessie Smith ballad, Blind Willie Johnson spiritual, or Eric Von Schmidt blues, Muldaur creates lush, personal renditions combining instruments and orchestration not commonly heard in contemporary music. ‘Password’ is his second release after a 20-year absence from performing, and it showcases a heartfelt craftsman in top form.
