Mulligan Stew Feb 11th 2023- Terry Wickham-The state of Folk Music Festivals in Western Canada

Some strong themes in this edition of The Stew.

Terry Wickham, long-time Producer of Edmonton Folk Fest responds to the possible demise of the Vancouver Folk Fest and how it may affect other Western Canadian Festivals.

He also talks about the state of today’s touring industry. Off stage and on.

Let’s face it, music production and essential business are changing rapidly. Artists are finding new and creative ways to make a living and extend their careers. Will your favorite festival still be up and running by the Summer? Have a listen.

We salute Sheryl Crow’s Birthday ()1952)

And songwriter Jerry Goffin, who with his then-wife Carol King wrote a lot of hits in the ’60s.

Natural Woman – Aretha

One fine day – Chiffons
Up on the roof – Drifters

Oh. And we start The Stew with Ray Charles – because on this day in 1959, he recorded What’d I say and he closed every show of his career with that song.

There’s some great new music from Michael Kaeshammer, Rory Block, Peaches, and Quiet, Ron Sexsmith &  Eva Cassidy.

A rare recording of Ry Cooder and David Lindley and their son and daughter live on stage at Vienna Opera House.

They lay into Mercury Blues.

There’s a segment when we go back to Winterland Ballroom in SF and relive the medley that Dylan and The Band finished The  Last  Waltz with.


Heads UP – Next week’s guest is BOOKER T JONES. The heart and soul of Stax Records. (25TH at Jack Singer)
