Mulligan Stew Sept 17th 2016- Guests Stephen Fearing & Royal Wood

MulliganStew Header_1
TWO special guests in the first hour of this week’s Stew..
Stephen Fearing is one busy guy.kings and kings
He’s currently in the Maritimes touring with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings..who are about to release  their much awaited Kings and Kings.
However Stephen has his own agenda.
Yes he has a new album coming early in the New year but he’s about to release on Monday his  first single called Blowhard Nation.
It’s a protest song about the current political race in the USA but really focuses on Donald Trump.
Neither of us have seen a lot of artist push back from his fear mongering but Stephen is more than ready to have a go.
He says he’ll get a lot of social messages..we’ll keep an eye on that.
Mulligan Stew is honoured to be the first  show anywhere to play the song …

“I love the word blowhard – I imagine a man with a red face and neck rolling over the knot of his conservative tie. The last thing I saw before heading into the bush to write this batch of songs was the cover of a magazine featuring Donald Trump in full sneer. At that point it seemed inconceivable that such a loud-mouthed bully / con-artist could become the Republican nominee,” Fearing explains.
By releasing the song early, Fearing hopes to contribute to the conversation about the potentially catastrophic global impact of a Trump presidency and use the song to try and help some of the people Trump is vilifying in his campaign. With this in mind, Fearing is donating his proceeds from the single to War Child, a charity which helps children in waraffected areas through education, opportunity, and justice.
Blowhard Nation is the first single from Every Soul’s a Sailor (album available January 14, 2017). Over the course of his celebrated career Stephen Fearing has collaborated with artists such as Shawn Colvin, Richard Thompson, Sarah McLachlan, Tom Wilson, Colin Linden, and Margo Timmins. When not working behind the microphone, Fearing spends his time teaching songwriting and producing, working on projects like Suzie Vinnick’s JUNO-nominated album Happy Here.
