EP 122 | Mike Plume and Tom Seaver


A rare double Guest Podcast!

We had always planned to showcase Mike Plume and his latest album Lonesome Stretch of Highway.

Mike has two dates coming up  Monday/Tuesday, Sept 7&8 at The Ironwood in Calgary.

We include four tracks from the album. His 10 years in Nashville show up in the songs. Solid work all around.

Then this week one of the greatest clutch pitchers to ever play baseball Tom Seaver died after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.

I had interviewed Tom by phone at his vineyard on top of  Diamond Mt. Calistoga at 7am Feb 18 2013.

(He started his days early)

I loved the conversation. A mix of baseball moments/memories and watching over his vineyards every day.

Tom was a storyteller..have a listen, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Enjoy Mike and please remember Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver.

Thank you


EP 121 | Kinnie Starr


Kinnie Starr just co-wrote the powerful single, THE BEST, with Amanda Rheaume and is looking into the future with hope!

2020 will see the release of her soundtrack for the award-winning Edge of the Knife directed by Gwaai Edenshaw and Helen Haig-Brown and a follow-up podcast to Play Your Gender, the documentary film Kinnie released in 2016 on gender equity in the music industry. 

September 4-5-6 Kinnie will co-headline with Buffy Ste Marie and Snotty Nose Rez Kids at 2RiversRemix,   a live stream of Contemporary Indigenous Music

Normally it would have taken place in Lytton. BC but nothing is normal about 2020. 

Kinnie and I talk about her thoughts on Nation Indigenous Day, her soundtrack for Edge of the Knife, and the 2RiversRemix event next weekend.

You’re going to want to sit down for this one.

EP 120 | Tami Neilson


Tami Neilson is a Canadian.

Living and Working in New Zealand. Work is singing and songwriting in the music business.

Actually, the real work is being a mother and wife. Then comes work.

If you like the power of voices like Etta James &  Patsy Kline then Tami is your kind of singer.

But she’s more than that.

A feminist, mother, and social activist.

Her latest album is Chicka Boom. It’s fantastic. Just like Tami

We’re going to talk about starting over, women in country music, expectations of a Mother in music, double standards, and what being a Canadian still means.

And we will talk music. Promise.

Here comes THE TAMI SHOW

Mulligan Stew August 22nd 2020-Tami Neilson Interview


“But being in a room with Tami Neilson—whose voice is equal parts Patsy Cline, Mavis Staples and Etta James, and no, I’m not reaching for hyperbole here—is a reminder of the soul-shattering effect of the human voice at the height of its powers. I don’t get that reminder often enough; I’m not sure I could handle it emotionally if I did.”


Michael Barclay

McLean’s Magazine

The Neilson Family was part of the country scene in Canada. A young daughter Tami was shy and quiet. Not anymore.
She fell in love with a Kiwi and moved to NZ
Been there 10 years.
But she found her voice and direction.
Big voice driving a wicked mix of blues, soul, rockabilly, and country.
She was ready to take her latest album Chicka Boom on the road when the COVID-19 pandemic shut the music touring world down.

We found her at home In Auckland and open to talking about early family days in Canada, restarting her career in NZ, the challenges women face in country music, and the reaction to being a mother,  a performer, and a feminist.

The Complete Zoom interview can be found on  The  Mulligan Stew Podcast

Mulligan Stew Aug 15th 2020-Virtually Re-visiting the Wild Mountain Music Festival





I have never been to the Wild Mountain Music Festival in Hinton, Alberta.  But it feels like I have now!


It’s mid-July. Whole families show up. With two main stages side by side, all the audience has to do is turn 2 feet either way and the next artist kicks off.

The host for the past 6 years is CKUA’s Mid-Morning Mojo Baba.

We’re going to talk to Baba, Jason Williams and Meagan Loves from Swear by the Moon, who’s played and volunteered since the beginning.

I put together a  wish list of artists from the many who’ve played Wild Mountain.

CKUA Senior Producer Elliott Garnier kindly gathered live tracks from various festivals we’ve recorded. (Thank you Scott Franchuk)


Looking back on highlights from years past.

The on-stage performance list says it all.


Blue Rodeo – ‘Til I am myself again (Calgary 2017)

Terra Lightfoot –  Never Will (Wild Mtn 2019)

Harp and Axe – Pretty Please (Edmonton 2019)

Harry Manx – Make Way (Edmonton2015)

Steve Mariner – Trouble no more (Edmonton Blues Fest )

Matt Anderson – People get Ready (Bear Creek 2017)

Whitehorse – Boys like you (Canmore 2017)

Mariel Buckley – Driving in the Dark (Edmonton 2017)

Diggin Roots – Highway 17 (Edmonton 2016)

Serena Ryder – Sing Sing (her Live album)



Special guests include BABA (who’s MC’d many years)

Also, Meagan Loves – Swear by the Moon

Jason Williams – Festival Artistic  Director



Hour one starts with


The great Brian Wilson and his  song Love and Mercy

Led Zeppelin back to back with new Robert Plant

Paul Simon Live in Central Park.

Dave Mason and his famous pals,.

John Mayer and Ben Harper

Anna Jayne Burton and Joey Landreth

Michael Kaeshammer and Colin James

Gord Downie and The Sadie’s

And a famous moment in Amsterdam when The Who ran onto the stage at the Concertgebouw to play Tommy for the first time.

That moment when drummer Keith  Moon kept running and fell off the stage and took the sound system with him.

I was there..remember it well and now I can hear the audience go “ooooh” as he fell.

EP 119 | Dan Mangan Talks Side Door Access


First words on the Sidedoor Access Website


“We are a team of artists & technologists passionately building an efficient, friendly and transparent marketplace where anybody can perform, host, or curate shows for their communities”

And then this –

“Although our company was originally for in-person shows only, we quickly expanded to the online sphere, once gatherings became unsafe. Our job is to help artists, curators, festivals, and venues keep creating shows and help audiences find them.

When faced with a crisis, it is always art that helps us through. Whether it offers comfort, community, understanding, solace, distraction, or perspective, art has always been something humanity employs to make it through pain and suffering. We are committed to supporting the creators in safe and innovative ways to connect to their audience.”

Laura Simpson
Co-Founder & CEO

Laura’s founding partner is Dan Mangan, a singular artist who knows about endless road trips,  rooms full of strangers, and surviving the hard road.

SideDoor started several years ago as a way for emerging artists to play stages in towns, cities, regions, and provinces.

The stages were storefronts, backyards, front rooms, porches, tennis courts, and actual stages.

Forward to 2019 and a World epidemic that changed everyone’s life.

Dan tells the story of where he was and how Sidedoor Access  became “The Thing”

Here’s the story of how Dan, Laura, and Sidedoor became a sensation and changed their lives.  Again.

Mulligan Stew August 8th 2020- Revisiting the Edmonton Folk Festival


The Stew takes a run at Festival Radio.

This week we celebrate the great Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

My co-host is Elliott Garnier who was the on site producer for the entire festival.

The fans can’t gather on The Hill but we can help recreate the feeling.

We had many interviews and live performances to choose from…but here’s the final list.

Terry Wickham – Producer of the Festival. He gives us a preview of the new Festival documentary The Hill featuring highlight performances from past years.

Nathaniel Rateliff – 3 days after the Jimmy Fallon breakout. (2015)

Rhiannon Giddens – appearing as a solo performer for the first time. Outspoken activist. Gifted artist. The complete memorable conversation can be heard on the MulliganStew Podcast (2017)

Dan Mangan and Blacksmith – a brilliant off-the-cuff acapella song. (2014)

The Bros. Landreth – debuting songs from their new album. Strong performance. (2018)

Mike Farris – Grammy winner. A wicked mix of rock, gospel, and soul. Great voice. (2016)

Michael Franti – who better to close the show.  He returns to Edmonton where he spent some of  his teen years. Biggest audience we’ve seen at the CKUA tent. Brings the Joy of The Hill (2018)

Ep 119| Rhiannon Giddens Podcast


This is the first repeat that we’ve presented on the Podcast.
It comes from working on a Mulligan Stew special celebrating our many years at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival.
One interview stood out.
This one with Rhiannon Giddens.
It was 2018 and she was returning to the festival for the first time since taking time away from her friends in Carolina Chocolate Drops.
She was now a solo artist with T Bone Burnett producing and mentoring.
That’s a matter of record.
What was outstanding were her comments 2 years ago on Black Lives Matter, civil rights, the history of black struggle in America, and her place in that struggle.
Powerful words and opinions. As essential today as they were 2 years ago.
We present Rhiannon Giddens. The complete interview.

Recorded live at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Rhiannon Giddens talks to Terry David Mulligan about stepping into the spotlight as a solo artist, the influence T-Bone Burnett has had on her career, her latest record ‘Freedom Highway’ and her thoughts on the recent sea change in American politics.
