It’s been a long road from her early days in Greenwhich Village, she gravitated to the burgeoning folk scne, ultimately hooking up as lead singer for the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, with memorable renditions of “Chevrolet’’ and “I’m A Woman.’’ Time passed, but Maria’s career has continued – she will be playing Monterey to promote her new album, Yes We Can! (check out her work on //www.myspace.com/mariamuldaurtoday). The news TelArc recording was released in July 2008 as part of the growing cultural and political excitement surrounding Obama. Besides the title track, Allan Toussaint’s lively “Yes We Can, Can’’ other tracks include three covers of tunes from her her old friend Bob Dylan—“License To Kill,’’ “John Brown’’ and Masters of War.’’ High profile guest shots include appearances by Joan Baez, Phoebe Snow, Odetta and the Women’s Voices for Peace Choir.’’ But when Maria preaches, you feel like coming to church.
