Mulligan Stew May 5th 2018-Shakey Graves, Donovan Woods Interviews


It’s the last Stew on Roundhouse Radio.  At this point no one knows what will happen next.

It was a wild ride.

HOWEVER, Mulligan Stew carries on.

It’s in its 22nd year on CKUA Radio.  Province wide in Alberta .

Every Saturday 5-7PM Mtn (4-6 Pacific)

Streamed on the CKUA App. And on the website

And now it’s a PODCAST

Mulligan Stew  Music.Film.Food.Wine on Spotify, Google Play Music and iTunes.

Our Special Guests this week both have brand new albums

Shakey Graves – Can’t Wake Up.  His 5th in 7 years.  From a One man Band with a suitcase to headliner. Shakey delivers!!

Donovan Woods – Establishing himself as a consummate singer/songwriter.  Doesn’t seek fame just an audience to call his own.

Album is called Both Ways.


From The Austin Chronicle

In December, Shakey Graves tweeted, “Next album. New sound. Sell your suspenders.”

Droll, but even then it was hard to imagine Austin son Alejandro Rose-Garcia forgoing the sound that collages his growing body of work. Out of his trademark suitcase kick-drum, 2011 debut Roll the Bones tumbled forth bedroom intimacy and playfulness, an old-timey, distinctly Southwestern collusion of acoustica – guitar, banjo, harmonica, hand claps – and even a telling Springsteen cover, ‘billy bomp “I’m on Fire.” That began buzz throughout his hometown but quick.

The Donor Blues EP (2012) retained said stripped folk jig, but national breakout And the War Came two years later offered full-band bravado and high-watt jams, launching Shakey Graves beyond a homegrown hero turned FridayNight Lights cult TV actor. Third proper full-length Can’t Wake Up now completes his metamorphosis into an exceptional songwriter whose songs manifest into cinematic novellas. Characters living therein and their actions come to life in dreamy detail.”

Couldn’t have said it better.

Alejandro began his music career with a buskers mentality on stage – without ever really busking out on the streets.

His was a solo act with a suitcase for a drumkit. Then a 3 piece and now a full band backs him up.

In 2015 he was named Best Emerging Artist at the Americana Music Awards.

Now, here he is 5 albums in 7 years. The latest –just released – is Can’t Wake Up. It’s a heady mix of folk, blues, rock and roots.

He’s an actor, singer/songwriter and an artist. He designed the montage for the album cover.

His Father was a film set designer so you know his stage show will be special.

He IS coming our way..Massey Hall Toronto is sold out, as is Montreal show. He’s at Regina Folk Festival in August, which is the heart of the festival season in the West.

So…who knows!

He may he Shakey but he’s also a  charming soul.

Donovan Woods.

We welcome back an old friend – Canadian born, Nashville based singer/songwriter Donovan Woods and his new album  Both Ways.

Donovan can’t be called a country singer but he has country fans. He’s a folkie who shows up at Jazz festivals.

Even though he’s a really fine performer I think it’s his songwriting that will eventually make him a star.

Frankly, as he admits in this interview, stardom is not exactly what he’s looking for.
“Just a 1000 people in a room”  With hopefully a  series of ever-expanding rooms.

Both Ways ought to do the trick.

He’s just passed through the West but I do believe DW will be back before the summer is over.

Both RAW interviews will find their way onto the Mulligan Stew Podcast.

Episode 10: New Recording Studios


A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Hello all:

Saturdays guest is Liam Titcomb.

I spent a lifetime hanging out with and travelling the roads with his father Brent..many MANY years ago, when he was a member of 3’s a Crowd.
Liam has been signed to Nettwerk Records and has just released a four song  EP called Love Don’t Let Me Down.
Liam seems to have learned the art of songwriting and performing very well..because these four songs appear to be just the tip of the iceberg.
Thus, we’re pleased to welcome Liam back to CKUA in our second hour.

Mulligan Stew June 16th



We are slowly updating , inputting and reconciling our archives…please check back as we re-build our database of past playlists

This week on Mulligan Stew:

Colin James
 has worn many hats during his long and storied career. When Colin first hit the scene a quarter century ago, he became an instant rock guitar hero, mentored by the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan. Since then, this iconic Canadian has topped the charts as a pop vocalist, recorded an acclaimed blues album and led the swing revival with his Little Big Band, which he both fronted and produced. He has performed for the Queen, sold multi-platinum many times over and continues to sell out shows coast to coast.  Along the way, he’s written memorable hit songs and given us distinctive covers of timeless classics with his newest album teasing that the best is still yet to come.
This six-time Juno Award winner has come full circle with his latest album, aptly titled Fifteen.  On the verge of 25 years since the release of his debut, this is Colin’s 15th release and it takes this Saskatchewan artist back to his full-blooded rock roots.
Colin James talks with host Terry David Mulligan about working on Fifteen with Ron Sexsmith, Tom Wilson, and Alan Doyle on the next Mulligan Stew, Saturday, June 16 at 7pm.

OK..we have two guests this week on The Stew.
The first is Matt Rose from The Matinee. Vancouver band that’s just completed a new album produced by Steve Berlin from Los Lobos.
Also The Hip, Great Big Sea, The Blasters etc
They are Across Canada by train – just like Festival Express – and have plans to stop Saturday June 9th in Jasper around 4pm and later that night in Edmonton.
The PLAN is to get off and play a short set somewhere around jasper..then back on the train.
Apparently Edmonton has been scrubbed  BUT if enough people show up..perhaps they can be convinced to play.
Matt’s in the first hour.
The second hour has a feature interview with Stephen fearing and Steve Dawson.
We cover a lot of ground..both their careers..and their plans for this year.
The last 30 minutes of the show are spent spotlighting some of the main artists at this years Edmonton Folk Fest
