Mulligan Stew August 25th

If you went to the Bonnie Raitt closer concert at Edmonton Folk Fest this year, you would have noticed her keyboard player Mike Finnegan

Bonnie gave him his own spotlight and he sang like a mockingbird.

I’ve been playing Mike for years now and am so happy he’s still around and finally getting the break he earned years ago,

And THATS why he starts off Saturdays Stew.

On Vinyl my friends.

Lyle Lovett sings a Holiday song – well, it mentions the Holidays. Girl with the Holiday Smile which begins

“I met a hooker at the grocery store”

Brand new Van Morrison music  Born to Sing

Tom Waits


New Whitehorse. Radiator Blues

 New Scenic Route, Royal Wood

Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) shows up with a down and dirty  version of Peter Greens Oh Well on the Tribute to Fleetwood Mac.  I’m happy to see that the producers we aware there were two different Fleetwood Macs. The first was by far the best.






LIVE tracks from 


Bruce Cockburn
