GEOFF MULDAUR AND THE TEXAS SHEIKS

TEXAS SHEIKS

2009-09-06

This is acoustic front porch blues at its finest. American roots musician Geoff Muldaur the Ex-husband of Maria & father to Jenni Muldaur has put together the Texas Sheiks an musical all-star ensemble that is sure to captivate the hearts and ears of all its listeners. Joining Geoff as a member of the Sheiks is the great Suzy Thompson on fiddle, Cindy Cashdollar who is now both a Sheik and a Guilty Women on both slide and steel guitars and the Texas legend the late great Stephen Bruton on guitar and mandolin. Geoff describes the Sheiks as old time back woods rhythm and soul. I couldn’t agree more. The Sheiks are all serious musicians but after the first listen it is easy to tell the fun that was had while making this recording and the sense of humor shown on tracks like “Under the Chicken Tree” and “Blues in the Bottle”. It is my hope that the Texas Sheiks will ride into your living room, take control of your stereo and be enjoyed on every front porch from Texas and beyond. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
