Playing his 12-fret 1935 Martin, Geoff Muldaur brings to his instructional video three decades of experience and a deep knowledge of American roots music. He is one of the great singers, guitarists and all-around musical forces to emerge from the folk and blues scenes centered in Cambridge (MA) and Woodstock (NY) in the 1960's.
He was a founding member of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band from 1963-68, recording four albums with them for Vanguard and Warner Brothers. He was also one of the original members of Paul Butterfield's Better Days, and he recorded two albums with his ex-wife Maria Muldaur and one with guitar wizard Amos Garrett. Geoff’s recording credits include appearances with Jerry Garcia, Bob Dylan, Richard Thompson, Bonnie Raitt, Hal Ketchum, Benny Carter, James Booker, John Cale, Victoria Williams, Otis Spann, Phil Everly and Bobby Charles.
He has produced records for Lenny Pickett and the Borneo Horns and the Richard Greene String Quartet. He's also composed film and television scores, winning an Emmy in the process. His definitive recording of "Brazil" provided the seed for and was featured in Terry Gilliam's film of the same title.
