FEATURED SUPER AGER – CELEBRITY INTERVIEW With Maria Muldaur – A story of inner strength put to work

Perhaps one is showing their age if they truly remember Midnight at the Oasis, the mega-hit song by singer Maria Muldaur. How many of you sent your camel to bed? I’ve certainly remembered the song’s lyrics since I first heard it, and you’ll find I’ve mixed in a few of those words in this interview. It’s great to have a long shelf life and both the song and singer have had just that. Muldaur, who is now a vivacious 80, received several Grammy nominations and Midnight, first released in 1973, is still aired on numerous radio formats.

Muldaur’s 60-year career has led her down a long and winding road filled with adventure and experiencing vari­ous musical categories. Maybe it’s the traces of romance in her head.
