EP 198 | Remembering Solomon Burke- Never before played interview




Moving is never “fun” but along the way (if you’re lucky) you find little treasures.

During our latest move, I found boxes and cases with interviews.

It got me to thinking – where is that Solomon Burke Interview?

We had talked at the Edmonton Folk Festival several years earlier and in 2010 when he was releasing a new album Nothing’s Impossible.

Produced by Willie Mitchell in Memphis. Same Studio, producer, musicians as Rev Al Green!

We had a great chat and off he went – passing away weeks later as he passed through Amsterdam’s airport.

I simply couldn’t find the heart to go back and listen to the interview. Every time I heard the first words I started to tear up.

So. I walked away from the interview thinking the day will come when I can deal with it.

Well, today’s the day.

Solomon Burke was asked in an interview “are you a gospel/church singer or a blues singer?”..Solomon’s reply was “I’m a soul singer”

He was the first artist to use the phrase.

The man was a preacher, singer, writer, mortician!  When it came to the music business he was not to be messed with.

If you get a chance check out his life story. It’s a wild ride.

Solomon Burke by-the-numbers

Performed 55 years. 38 studio albums. 17 record labels. Grammy winner. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 17 million albums sold.  In 2008 was #89 of Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 greatest singers of all time.

AND Father 21 children and Grandfather of 90 Grandkids.

EP 197 | Kevin Hearn-There And Then


Kevin Hearn has released a stark album called There and Then:  Solo Piano Improvisations.  3 distinct rooms, 3 pianos, and 3 days of playing, each only for 3 hours.
No demos. No rehearsal. No real conversation between himself and producer Mark Howard.
Yes. The same Kevin Hearn who was a member of the Corky and the Juice Pigs Band, bandleader for Lou Reed, and a star member of Bare Naked Ladies.
Kevin worked for years with Gord Downie. Right up until Gord was lost to Cancer.
There and Then honors Gord (Among the Stars) and  Lou (Lou) and Garth Hudson (The Garth Hudson Institute) and the basic elements of great music.

The album cover was painted by Gord’s daughter Willo. Lou Video was directed by Mike Downie.
Rather than paint a word picture I’ve decided to let Kevin tell the tale of how all this came to be.
THIS is an album that will become a balm for the World we all live in.
Well done Kevin and Mark.

EP 196 | Keb’Mo’


It’s fair to say Keb Mo is simply one of the most popular choices for anyone’s playlist.  An easy pull.

He delivers thoughtfulness, groove, and joy every time.

So imagine my delight in having him Zoom guest from his home in Nashville.

Keb’s new album is Good to be. It reflects the loss of his mother, returning  to Compton to remodel and freshen up the home he was brought up in and to reconnect with “the community”.  That’s one thing we talk about – I never thought of Compton as a community because everything I read and heard only referenced the toughness of the streets and what could be a hard life. (NWA!!)

Keb references and hangs with The Compton Cowboys.. real-life people. Legends in  Compton history. (Check out the video below)

Speaking of video – You can see the Zoom Interview on the Terry David Mulligan YouTube Channel!  His smiles and laughs make the session come alive.

Keb also talks strongly about his thoughts on  Black History Month, working with Vince Gill, Old Crow Medicine Show, covering his friend Bill Withers, etc.

He answers the last question straight up – Did you find the blues or did the blues find you?

The complete audio and zoom interview drops right after The Stew.  Details  at

EP 195 | Paul Janeway – St. Paul & The Broken Bones


St Paul and the Broken Bones.  The best name in years.

Our guest is the co-founder, lead singer, and co-writer Paul Janeway…the Paul of St Paul.

They’ve just released their 4th Album The Alien Coast. Fair to say, it’s not like the other three.

The groove is still there but they’re singing about classic painters, fever dreams, dancing as the World ends.

Paul Janeway looks like what he was planning to be – an accountant and bank teller – or a Preacher.

On stage, he brings the fire and brimstone of a Preacher but with the composure of Marvin Gaye and the driven belief of James Brown.

There’s so much to talk about here. Faith. Love. Devotion.

With three tracks included from The Alien Coast, we proudly present Paul Janeway – St Paul and the Broken Bones.

Mulligan Stew Feb 19th 2022-Special Guest Paul Janeway


Does anyone remember the moment a couple of years ago at the Edmonton Folk Fest when Paul Janeway left the Broken Bones blasting on stage and took his microphone into the audience and walked halfway up the hill?

He’d still be going but the mic stopped working.

It’s the kind of thing a firebrand preacher might do. That’s part of Paul’s childhood in Alabama.

He didn’t hear any popular music on the radio until his late teens because he and his family only listened to gospel stations.

Paul claims his gateway drug into secular music was early Tom Waits. Good Call.

We talk about the Edmonton Folk Fest, finding his voice, Paul talks about Oasis Pizza. That’s the routine they go through backstage just before they go on.

He talks about how he transforms into St Paul as he walks out to the mic and also fills us in on his best friend and co-founder/bassist  Jessie Philips.  Jessie’s hometown isn’t Birmingham, Alabama. It’s Fernie, BC.

Paul also proudly brings their new album  The Alien Coast. That’s where they all live – on The Gulf of Mexico coastline. Early explorers called it The Alien Coastline.

It’s not exactly the same R&B band you may have fallen for.  The groove is still there but the lyrics reference classic art and painters, dream state content, etc.

All this plus 2 hours of hand-picked tunes.

New tracks from John Mellencamp (with Bruce Springsteen), Bahamas,  Taj and Ry,  Matt Anderson, Walk off the Earth, Aaron Neville, next week’s guest Keb’ Mo’.

The complete Interview with Paul Janeway – with tracks – can be heard on the Mulligan Stew Podcast. Also available on video. Details at 

FYI – Next weeks Podcast features Keb’ Mo’

EP 194 | Shawn Hall: Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer live at the King Eddy


Carefully assembled from the most powerful performances of a three-night residency at Calgary’s historically iconic blues mecca, the King Edward Hotel, between February 15th and 17th, 2019, Live at the King Eddy arrives as the latest installment of an already storied career that has to date produced six stunning studio releases. Following the independently released, raw folk and country-blues excursions of 2007’s The Blues Can Kill and the following year’s eponymous album, vocalist and harmonicist Shawn Hall – the Harpoonist – and guitarist Matt Rodgers – the Axe Murderer – truly hit their stride and found their sound on 2012’s Checkered Past.

Now. Three years after capturing these live recordings on The Stones Mobile, Harp and Axe release the finished product. Live at The King Eddy.

It’s a pumped and beautifully greasy set. Slick and unhinged at the same time.

Here’s a conversation with Shawn Hall – The Harp. We’ve showcased 5 tracks for you.

  • Mama’s in the back seat
  • Cry a Little
  • Roll with the punches
  • Sarah
  • Treat me kind
