Mulligan Stew August 8th 2015- Live at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival


Today at 5PM…Mulligan Stew is LIVE at the edmonton folk festival..
5-7PM Mountain time. 4-6 Pacific. Streaming live click here: LISTEN LIVE!Screen Shot 2015-08-08 at 9.46.38 AM

Right at 5pm its one of the hottest emerging acts anywhere.
2 nights ago Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats earned and received a standing ovation from the Jimmy Fallon studio audience..for their killer single SOB. (check out the video)

5 years ago Daniel would have shown up as a solo act in edmonton..just a guy, a guitar and his songs.
Now he brings a serious R&B band..with horns, B3 organ and tunes you’d swear came from the golden days of Stax.
Best of all, they kick off the show..right at 5PM.  Don’t miss these guys..
530 brings  the pride of New Brunswick Matt Anderson.
Matt brings the whole package..A voice that can switch from a whisper to a growl.  Complete mastery of his guitar and ever improving songs..the latest from his best LP ever – Weightless.
It seems he’s never not on the road but one of the highlights of his year is playing this festival in Edmonton. Not bad for a guy who has stubby fingers…

Theres a really fine story by Tom Murray in todays Edmonton Journal that details the difficult formative years of EFMF. How they almost went under 30 years ago and how a band of dedicated volunteers and music types pulled together to keep it alive..
They included Holger Petersen & Tom Coxworth from CKUA. Then along came Terry Wickham.who took over leadership and he/they began to build the outstanding event we enjoy today.
Terry Wickham guests right at 6PM.  He brings the stories with him.
630 brings Danny Michel…who, after moving to Belize and recording with local musicians released an amazing album called BlackBirds are dancing over me.
It received so many plays on so many shows that it was declared the album of the year on the CKUA Top 100.
We’re going to talk to him about his latest project – the smaller calmer School Night Mondays at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto. and jamming with astronaut Chris Hadfield.

and then two highlights from last years Festival.
Daniel Lanois and Dan Mangan and Blacksmith

Enjoy!!  tdm

Mulligan Stew Aug 23rd


Welcome to our new re-tooled Stew website.
Web master Corey Wood and myself will try and keep you up-to-date on everything coming your way on The Stew.
For example..


The usual two hours of great music and when we stop to talk..we don’t babble or turn it into a classroom.
Its talk from the heart.
TNile and TDMT Nile was at the Edmonton Folk Festival but I didn’t get a chance to talk to her on we found each other for a follow up.
Her wonderful new release is called Tingle and Spark. Its  very good. A game changer for her.
Co-Producer Matt Rogers from The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer  allowed Tamara to  move away from folk and into a more mainstream feel.
(T says she’ll always be a folkie)
A number of you let me know that they missed the Edmonton Folk Festival Broadcast and especially the last two guests.
Daniel Lanois and Dan Mangan/Blacksmith.
daniel_lanoisSo..I’m going to recut the Daniel Lanois interview and add some music to it (U2, Dylan, etc)
The RAW interview will be posted here by Corey, so you can get a true sense of the man.
The STEW Daniel Lanois interview RAW
It was amazing to hear him talk about his past and especially his future..(no more studios)
Daniel is considered by a great many people to be one of the World’s best producers.
Lets just  check out the credits [line]
Dan_Mangan_CLR_Vert_HRThe last guest on the show was Dan Mangan and his group of merry pranksters Blacksmith.
 Just as we were wrapping up the show I lamented that they brought no instruments so as to play us out..but I did ask if they had any acapella tunes..why YES they did..’s the tune  right after the T Nile Interview.
OH and one more thing..I somehow got going on a STOP set.  Tunes that had the word stop in the title or the lyrics..Um..I got carried away.
Hope you like it
