EP 224 | Dr John ‘Things Happen That Way’


New Orleans, Louisiana is one of the World’s greatest music cities.

Mac Rebennack was Dr. John,  one of the singular faces and voices of New Orleans music.

A true leader in the studio, on the streets, and on stages of the World,  Mac won 6 Grammys and became friends with Ken Ehrlich, the long-time producer of the show.

Mac was planning future projects when his life was unexpectedly cut short in 2019. Now, 3 years after his passing, Things Happen That Way will see the light of day. The album, which features three brand new original compositions, an amazing reworking of Dr. John’s 1968 classic, I Walk on Guilded Splinters, and new interpretations of songs by Willie Nelson, Cowboy Jack Clement, Hank Williams, and The Traveling Wilburys was released on Friday.

Things Happen That Way marks the fulfillment of a long-time goal of the six-time GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter/pianist and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, who first began plotting a country-inspired album decades ago. The album also features guest appearances by Aaron Neville,  Mac’s long-time friend and frequent musical collaborator Willie Nelson, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.

Our guest this week is Mac Rebennack’s and Dr. John’s good friend, Ken Ehrlich.

When Mac passed, Ken was asked to write the liner notes for the album and give a farewell speech at Mac’s  Celebration of Life.

Ken paints a warm verbal picture of the man called Dr. John. Through his dark days of prison and drugs, breaking free of addiction to light up the stages of the world!

And he reads the closing paragraphs of his farewell speech.

Join us as Ken Ehrlich remembers the legendary Dr. John and tells the story of  his last album Things Happen That Way

Mulligan Stew Sept 24th 2022- Dr John ‘Things Happen That Way’


Mac Rebennack – known the world over as Dr. John died at dawn on June 6, 2019. For some of us, he was Dr John. The Night Tripper. For ALL of us he was the voice and face of New Orleans.

His latest (and last?) album Things Happen That Way, releases Friday.
And what an album. Guests include Willie Nelson,  Willies son Lucas Nelson and Promise of the Real. Aaron Neville.
Our interview guest is Ken Ehrlich who for over 40 years was the producer of the Grammy Awards. Mac had won 6 Grammys,  which is how they met and became friends.
When Mac died Ken was asked to write the liner notes and give the farewell speech at Mac’s celebration of life.
Mac Rebennack was a musical genius, a mentor,   a reformed addict, a Father, and husband. And such a character.  Which is why Dan Auerbach is shooting a documentary on Dr. John.

The complete dialogue – and it includes Ken reading some of his farewell speech for us – can be enjoyed on the Mulligan Stew Podcast.

September 24th, 2022 – The return of the Vancouver Wine Festival: Part One


The return of  VanWineFest Part One…


After  a series  of historic events far more important than a wine gathering,

we welcomed the 43rd annual Vancouver Wine Festival back into our lives.

The pandemic required a different gathering this year.

Smaller crowds,  masks not mandatory but fully encouraged.

Fewer wineries and participants made for a calmer and quieter convention center. We liked it.

Many of the participants who were scheduled to attend and pour last year returned with some wines a year older and lots of new fresh wines from 2021.

There was an unmistakable joy in the room.

Joy, for having survived the pandemic.   Joy, to seeing friends and exchanging stories about the past two years.

It was a beauty.  People shook hands. They hugged! Almost like the life we used to know.

So… let’s celebrate with the first of two specials at this year’s VanWineFest from the floor of the Vancouver Convention Centre..

Many thanks to Harbour Air for getting me there and back. Also Meriha Beaton – Milk Creative. John De Vries, FMFM  and Corey Wood.

Proudly Sponsored by Harbour Air

Ep 223 | Nuela Charles Releases her self titled 4th Album.


We welcome back to The Mulligan Stew and the Podcast Edmonton’s Nuela Charles. The last visit was just before the 2018 Junos. She had one of her 3 Juno nominations in her sights.

Her self-titled 4th album was released Friday. It’s the best yet.

Always impressed with her work ethic, passion for the writing and creating of her music, and the honesty with which she takes us through the process.

We’ve included three tracks in the Podcast



Don’t get It

Check out the rest of the Nuela Charles album.  It’s engaging and engaging!!

It’s about Nuela,  her journey, and the power of being yourself.

Nuela was born in Kenya and raised in Switzerland, Canada, and the Bahamas, before settling down full-time in Edmonton, Alberta.

I asked Nuela if the influences of those countries could be found in her music but she surprised me by saying “I’m a rock/pop artist. I grew up on rock. That’s what I like’

She has also shared the stage as direct support for some of Canada’s musical icons including Sam Roberts Band, Jann Arden, and Stars. Additionally, she has been nominated for multiple awards including three JUNO Awards for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year. This year the SOCAN Foundation announced Nuela as a winner of the second annual Her Music Award.

Nuela has amassed over 4 million career streams to date, and placements on hit shows such as Jane the VirginTiny Pretty ThingsHouse of LiesThe Order and Finding Carter.

September 17th, 2022-a vertical pour from Clos Du Soleil and 3 new releases from Hester Creek


This week – a vertical pour from Clos Du Soleil and 3 new releases from Hester Creek



The invitation was just too good to pass up.

Michael Clark,  Winemaker and GM of Clos du Soleil Winery  in the Similkameen Valley was coming to Chambar Restaurant in Vancouver to pour two verticals of his wines.

Michael Clark

Best of all, he brought his Similkameen neighbour,  Master of Wine and co-owner of Little Farm Winery, Rhys Pender.

Rhys & Michael

First tasting was with Capella, their flagship white wine. A classic blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

The grapes are hand-harvested, de-stemmed and lightly crushed, then cold-soaked for several hours prior to pressing. The wine is fermented entirely in barrel (500L French oak puncheons), with the majority of the fermentations being spontaneous with wild yeast. In some years a portion of the barrels are allowed to go through wild malolactic fermentation as well. The wine is then aged on the lees for 9 months, with occasional lees stirring. Only the best lots are then blended for inclusion in Capella. The wine is filtered prior to bottling, but otherwise entirely unmanipulated.

Capella has truly earned a place in my wine world as one of my go-to favourites. That’s what happens when  wine becomes a treat for yourself and others. We tasted 2006/2009/2012/2017/2019/2021

The other vertical tasting was with their red icon Bordeaux blend Signature.

Signature is their flagship blend of red Bordeaux varieties, with most vintages including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Each variety and vineyard block is harvested separately, by hand, at optimal maturity and then gravity-fed to concrete tanks, where it is spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeast.

After a moderate post-fermentation maceration the wine is pressed in a basket press, and then aged for approximately 16 months in 100% French oak barrels, where it undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation. A rigorous barrel-selection process is used to determine the final blend. The resulting wine is bottled entirely unfined and unfiltered.

We tasted 2007/2009/2010/2013/2016/2017/2019.

 The Clos Du Soleil vineyards are primarily located on the upper bench of the southern Similkameen Valley, which has an arid, hot, desert-like climate, with rocky, mineral-rich soils that produce truly distinctive wines of ripe fruit character, fresh acidity, herbal notes and striking minerality.

Rhys Pender is the perfect co-host for this tasting as he has always tried to convince BC wine fans to cellar their special whites and enjoy them years later. Rhys has also taken part in these same varietal pours back home in Cawston with Michael and  brings with him the history of the wines and the vineyards.

 Our Second guest is Winemaker Mark Hopley of Hester Creek (Golden Mile)

A wonderful winemaker,  Mark Hopley would like all of us to know about three new releases.

Mark Hopley

2021 Ti Amo

Prosecco inspired, its primarily Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Semillon. $21.99

This clean sparkling wine bursts with fragrant honeysuckle and orchard blossom notes. The inviting palate shows light Okanagan pear and candied citrus, with a light touch of sweetness. A perfect sparkling wine for entertaining,  brunch or desserts. At this price, its perfect for larger gatherings, weddings and receptions.

2019 Old Vine Brut $34.99

Made from rare Old Vine Pinot Blanc vines on the historic Golden Mile Bench Vineyard (Thank you Joe Busnardo)

This second vintage displays  light honey hued tones with fine, active beads. Bright lemon, brioche and ginger aromas. A fresh and inviting palate invites the joy of lemon zest and fresh biscuits, ending with a clean, and long finish.  Beautifully balanced blanc de blanc Brut. This is the wine to  celebrate with,  enjoy with an olive tapenade, spot prawn ceviche or fresh Pacific oysters with a Meyer lemon ginger mignonette sauce. Loved this bubble. It’s such a delight, you’ll find yourself smiling and giggling. Which, considering our times,  is never a bad thing. Highly recommended. Cellar up to 10 years.

2019 The Judge $49.99

What a beautiful  wine. I fell in love with this Bordeaux blend the first year they made it – 2008.

Made from the oldest vines on their property.

41 Merlot/31 Cab/28 Cab Franc. Barrel aged 24 months. Primarily French oak (New and Neutral)

Winemaker Mark Hopley judged from the best lots in their  cellar to make this iconic wine. Generous aromas of toasted caramel, dark chocolate, fresh blackberry, leather and sagebrush. The fabulous palate expresses ripe cherry, rich cocoa and savoury characteristics with a round, huge finish. A richly textured wine that pairs well with braised short ribs, thick rich stews or full-bodied cheeses.

Can be cellared up to 10 years.

Join Hester Creek  throughout next  weekend at the winery for daily live music, vendors, vineyard tours, and food trucks!   Special features for Friday, September 23rd  Food Truck – Pit Stop Smokery  ~ 12-4pm Vendors ~ 12-4pm Petit Pétale Flower Farm South Okanagan Snacks Live Music by the talented Ari Neufeld ~ 1-4pm ​patio & lawn

New album Fun Machine – The Sequel  Just out Friday.

It’s 10 years since their breakout album Fun Machine.

The band described the new EP: “Imagine you walk into your favorite local dive bar and Lake Street Dive is on stage, doing our regular weekly gig for $5 a head. These are the songs we’d be covering there and how we’d be playing them. Some deep cuts, some sentimental favorites, and some (hopefully) epic crowd pleasers.”

Covers of Pointer Sisters, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, etc..but all with a cool groove, great singing, and bang-on arrangements.

Hugely popular – this is the second visit to The Mulligan Stew Podcast from Michael Calabrese, original member and drummer of Lake Street Dive.
