New York City, October 1963

Maria D'Amato played in the Even Dozen Jug Band in New York before moving to Cambridge, joining the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and marrying Geoff Muldaur. At a music party in artist Harry Jackson's Greenwich Village loft, Maria plays with painter-musician Bob Neuwirth (L.) and old-time guitarist Tex Isley (R.). Visible between Maria and Tex is a fragment of Jackson's painting "The Range Burial," which now hangs in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming.
