Mulligan Stew May 20th 2017-Ron Sexmith and Marc Cohn Interviews

hello


The one-of-a-kind Ron Sexsmith joins Terry David Mulligan this weekend on Mulligan Stew. A celebrated singer and extraordinary songwriter, Sexsmith will take TDM through his fifteenth studio album, The Last Rider. (And, as anyone who follows Ron’s Twitter account already knows, prepare yourself for a few puns along the way.)

This week’s show also has Terry’s full interview with singer-songwriter Marc Cohn. The  inspirational Grammy-winning artist touches on his work, his life.

And, following to a donor email, TDM does a little deconstruction of a Van Morrison’s “Real Real Gone” and its subtle allusions to other influential musicians like Wilson Pickett and
James Brown.

Mulligan Stew May 13th 2017- Tedeschi Trucks Band Interview

hello



 
But most of all, I was struck by the visual of an 11-piece outfit that includes men, women, black people, and white people standing on the same stage — sharing, collaborating, dancing, celebrating, and above all working together toward a common goal. The music itself was a thoroughly American amalgamation of blues, soul, jazz, and funk. But Tedeschi Trucks Band hit hardest that night as a reiteration of an idea about America that seemed to have been discarded in a road-side ditch earlier that week. That the election didn’t kill the compassionate spirit of this country — particularly the ways in which that spirit is manifested in American music, our nation’s greatest export — filled me with so much unexpected hope. Like that, Tedeschi Trucks Band became my new favorite live band.
Steven Hyden  – UPROXX

Susan, Derek and I go over a lot of subjects including the death  and life of Leonard Cohen.  Bob Dylan, Bands that do it right, honest music, songwriting in this political climate, and their place in today’s music.
Also highlight tracks from the new Live LP – including Bird on a wire, Let me get by, Within you Without you, I pity the fool, Don’t know what it means, Just as Strange!
On March 17th, 2017, Tedeschi Trucks Band l released their second live album and first ever concert film, Live From The Fox Oakland, on Fantasy Records. Led by the husband-and-wife duo of guitar master, Derek Trucks, and singer-guitarist, Susan Tedeschi, the 12-piece ensemble’s breathtaking live show is captured here over 15 blistering tracks.
Watch the full 10-minute powerhouse performance here: https://youtu.be/h0kXfPrHHcw.
For a band that spends hundreds of days on the road a year, it was important to choose the right time for their second live album. As Derek explains, “we’ve been wanting to properly document the progress of this band for a while and it really felt like we were hitting our stride and firing on all cylinders last fall.”Tedeschi adds, “it was special capturing the live performance from Oakland. The audience was great and the band played with passion. I am thankful we captured the band at this moment in time.”

On July 1, they will launch their third annual Wheels of Soul tour, this year featuring like-minded roots-rockers, The Wood Brothers, and bona fide rock legends, Hot Tuna.

Mulligan Stew May 6th 2017-Marc Cohn Interview & Peter McCaffrey tribute

hello


Mulligan Stew has been on the air for 21 years (on CKUA radio Alberta)
Now the West Coast version has a home at Roundhouse Radio in Vancouver.
For almost 20 of those original years, one of the sponsors was Canada House Gallery in Banff.

The man who started the gallery along with his wife Marika was Peter McCaffrey.  He was a huge music fan. Loved the Stew so much he sponsored it for 18 years.
Peter passed away April 29  2017, listening to the radio with his daughters and family.
On this show, we will honor his memory and play some of the songs his daughters say were some of his favorites.

And our special guest in the last 30 minutes of The Stew is Grammy Winner Marc Cohn. (Walking in Memphis)
Writer, Singer, Dad, gunshot survivor, realist and a very fine performer.
He plays The Norman Rothstein Theatre in Vancouver Monday night.

Mulligan Stew April 15th 2017-Joel Plaskett Interview

hello


Happy Easter all
Because we’ve (I’ve) been talking so much due to multiple interviews…
This is the second show of almost all music..One interview at the end …

Joel Plaskett, who has released a fine album (with his Father Bill) called Solidarity.
This was one of the first albums that I got a sense that the songs were written and recorded during the turmoil of the US elections.
Was wondering what kind of effect all the vitriol had on Joel.
I found him at The Queens Hotel in Nanaimo..a floor above the stage where his Father was sound checking.
It was a fun talk. It wasn’t all politics. Also covered working with your DAD and what’s up ahead.
Great guy.

Music includes
A double shot of J Geils Band live – to honor the passing of J Geils

Talking heads, Ray Davies, Ruthie Foster with Derek Trucks, Beck, Wood Bros, Otis Redding, James Brown, Taj Mahal, Fats Domino,

  • And three Paul’s
  • Simon

  • Butterfield
  • Elton and King Biscuit Boy.

Mulligan Stew April 1st 2017-Ron Sexsmith, Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer, David Ward and Lester Quitzao Interviews

hello


This weekend, Terry David Mulligan sits down with talented singer-songwriter (and notorious Twitter punster) Ron Sexsmith. For The Last Rider — his thirteenth studio release — Sexmith is pulling double duty both as the artist and as the album’s producer. The result, he says, is an album that reveals  “his complete musical vision for the first time.”
Join TDM and Sexsmith as they discuss the new work, and his upcoming cross-country tour. He’ll also speak to The Harpoonist and the Axe Murder about their latest high-energy, blues-rock release Apocalipstick, which just hit shelves this week.
On the topic of tours,TDM also speaks with folk/blues guitarist Lester Quitzau about his upcoming shows in Alberta — his first in the province in recent years.
And he’ll take some time to check in with Freeway host David Ward on the eve of the Touch the Transmitter tour.

Mulligan Stew March 25th 2017- The Wood Brothers Interview, Chuck Berry tribute

hello


Got  just a TAD greedy this week.
Tried to squeeze in four interviews. Had to settle for three.
First interview  was the culmination of a 2 year wait. I missed the last Vancouver visit of The Wood Brothers  in 2015 and swore I’d head then off at the pass the next time.
Found the brothers at  Bill Vince’s  Imperial Room in Vancouver.
Brothers Chris and Oliver Wood and  from the planet Rashtar, Jano Rix.
Their latest release is Live at The Barn.
The barn was owned by their friend and legendary Band drummer Levon Helm.
This is a really good conversation. Coupled with killer tunes.

Then comes Jenn Grant, the pride of the Maritimes. She brings with her, a follow up to Compostela.
It’s called Paradise and it’s outstanding. She has a story about meeting David Bowie in space in a dream and the song Rocket came to her.
And Kevin Roy from Winnipeg also joins us. He launches his album in March
TDM also gathers an armful of Chuck Barry tracks as a remembrance to rocks Poet Laureate.

Mulligan Stew March 18th 2017- Blackie and the Rodeo Kings Interview

hello


Tom Wilson, Colin Linden and Stephen Fearing each have their own distinctive and successful solo careers.

But when they gather together to make music and tour, they become Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, one of Canada’s best voices in the World of music.
And to have them sit for a group interview backstage at The Commodore Ballroom was just sublime.
They are my  featured guests on Saturdays Stew – plus another 90 minutes of killer tracks.

Blackie & the Rodeo Kings originally formed in 1996 when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and LEe HARVeY OsMOND came together to record what was suppose to be a one- off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett…the rest is history!
As promised Blackie and The Rodeo Kings deliver the companion to their 2011 collaboration album KINGS and QUEENS. While KINGS and QUEENS featured guest appearances from some of the band’s favourite female singers, this album, titled KINGS and KINGS features some of the band’s best “guy” friends from the world of roots, blues and country. Each one of them an accomplished KING in their realm of creative endeavours and in many cases absolute KING legends in the entertainment industry.
 
TONIGHT – Two legends in one interview.

Mulligan Stew March 11th 2017-Leeroy Stagger Interview

hello

I knew Leeroy Stagger was working on and then releasing a new album. I was “waiting in the weeds” for the first sign of it. (That’s what we “weedies” do)

I’m happy to report that the wait was worth it.

Love Versus is a marvelous collection of songs & stories with structure, insight and melodies that linger in your head and heart.

I caught up with Leeroy by phone at the home ranch.

In a business filled with gotta be’s and would be’s Leeroy is a true original.  Bless his heart

This is a breakthrough LP for Leeroy who grew up in Victoria and was a fixture on the Coast.
His 11th Lp
Killer band..has Elvis Costello’s drummer sitting in.
First music made in Leeroy’s new studio in Lethbridge
 


 
It’s been said before that love is a battlefield, and on his latest album Love Versus (out April 7, 2017 through True North Records)Leeroy Stagger comes well armed. The eleventh studio release by the Western Canadian native is also a milestone, marking the first recording made at Stagger’s home studio in southern Alberta. But more significantly, his ever-evolving fusion of roots, rock and pop reaches new heights on Love Versus, resulting in 10 tracks that confirm his status as one of Canada’s best contemporary singer/songwriters.

“Leeroy is one of the most insightful songwriters I have ever come across. He has a gift for distilling complex images, commentary and concepts into brilliantly succinct lyrical one liners,” says Geoff Kulawick, President, True North Records.
It’s not that Stagger needed much more validation; after working with acclaimed producers Russell Broom (Sam Roberts) and Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) on his previous two albums, Stagger teamed up with Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde) to produce Love Versus, and put together a dream band for the project.  Longtime friend and collaborator Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat, The Mounties) remixed and ‘reimagined’, as Stagger would say, the title song and single in Vancouver.
The cornerstone was Pete Thomas, longtime drummer for Elvis Costello, who came up from L.A. for the sessions, joining guitarist Paul Rigby (Neko Case), keyboardist Geoff Hilhorst (The Deep Dark Woods), and Stagger’s longtime bassist Tyson Maiko. Over the course of three weeks, they christened Stagger’s new studio, and in the process changed his perspective on his art.
What is most striking about Love Versus overall is the wisdom at the foundation of each track, and indeed, for anyone who has followed Stagger’s career to this point, it should be apparent that this is the album he’s been destined to make. Since first making his mark on the Canadian independent music scene at the turn of this century, Leeroy Stagger has toured the world, both on his own and with the likes of Steve EarlePixiesModest Mouse and Evan Dando. After almost two decades of consistent output, Stagger certainly does have the respect of both his peers and Canada’s music industry tastemakers. However, the addition ofLove Versus to his (ahem) staggering body of work opens a new chapter, promising to reach many more ears.

Stagger has also announced a 10-date Western Canadian tour, kicking off March 17 at Panorama, BC and ending in Vancouver on April 22. Dates are below.

Mulligan Stew March 4th 2017- Tom Cochrane Interview!

hello


Tom Cochrane is starting his Mad Mad World 25th anniversary tour this week in the West.
That’s the album that gave us Life is a Highway. And many fans for Tom.
26 years ago Tom and I had traveled to Malawi, Ethiopia, Mozambique and other African nations on behalf of World Vision.
He guests on Saturdays Stew and we have lots to talk about.
Tom and I have always talked..we’ve developed a shorthand over the years.
There was a moment in the skies over Africa in a small prop plane in the middle of a violent storm,  where be both looked at each other and said “ we may not get through this”.
Tom was in the co-pilot seat..I thought that was a good sign.
Those kinds of things pull you together.
We both came back to Canada changed humans.
You can’t walk through camps where people die in front of you and not be changed.
Thankfully, when you leave the tents where the life or death battle takes place…you’re greeted by the cured,  the healed and the just plain lucky.
They sing, they dance, they celebrate being alive.
It shows itself in Tom’s music
