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.

EP 111 | Dan Magnan Co-Founder Side Door Access


Has the Side Door become the Front Door?


Singer/Songwriter Dan Mangan shared a “movement – an idea” with me on Mulligan Stew Radio.   Jan 6, the first show of  2018.


“We are building a platform where artists can earn a living by trimming the overhead of touring. We help you find magical small spaces with dedicated hosts and attentive audiences.

We want to help create human, tactile experiences offline. Music, Speakers, Dance, Theatre, Comedy – you name it.”


It was called Side Door Access.   www.sidedooraccess.com

Two years later and thanks, in part to a worldwide pandemic,  it has become a sensation.

Yes, artists can still play barns, basements, backyards, stores, coffee shops, libraries, etc

But now they can broadcast from HOME…and feel/see the audience

And best of all make a living

Here’s the latest from Dan Mangan…on the Side Door Story, his career, family, COVID 19, and the moment when he realized that his life was about to change.


Ep 74 | Dan Mangan PODCAST


Sep 28, 2019

Dan Mangan catches up with Terry to talk about ‘resurrecting’ his music career while starting a new family and a new business. Dan reflects on a banner year of his career, which included his recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! That appearance happened during a nine-day stretch of hiccups. Dan also talks about building his new artist venue platform Side Door and playing one of the biggest stages of his career at Edmonton Folk Music Festival.

Mulligan Stew Sept 28th 2019- Dan Mangan interview


The interview guest for this week’s Stew is singer/songwriter Dan Mangan.

He takes us back to a time between albums.  After Club Meds ran its course, Dan decided to step away from the music business rat race, welcoming a second child and become a full time Dad.

In 2017 he felt it was time to return to writing and performing. Problem was,  he wasn’t sure the songs would be there or  that the music business, getting younger every month, was ready to welcome him back.

The result was a long road back, new co-writers and musicians, new studio, new label Arts and Crafts and a fine new album More or Less.

His fans welcomed him back with sold out shows and he found a whole new gaggle of fans with each performance.

We’ll talk about the blur of the  past year, starting with his appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel show , festivals all over the world including his main stage appearance at this year’s Edmonton Folk Music Festival in front of upwards of 25,000 people.

Dan is currently touring Europe – again!  It includes  a gig at Union Chapel in London October 1st.

Not bad for a Dad from East Van.

FYI – The complete Dan Mangan interview can be heard on Mulligan Stew Podcast.. please just subscribe to Spotify – Google Play or Apple Podcasts.

Ep 42 | Dan Mangan Podcast



Fresh off his recent JUNO nomination, singer-songwriter Dan Mangan joins Terry for a chat about his new career direction. The pair discusses audience reaction to his new album ‘More or Less’, his recent turn scoring films, and how time has changed his relationship with his early hit songs. The podcast features two tracks from Dan’s new record ‘More or Less’.

Mulligan Stew Feb 2nd 2019- Jay and Dan Talk Super Bowl. Dan Mangan Interview


Jay Onrait – Athabasca born. Writer of Anchor Boy and  More short tales from a very tall man. Ryerson trained. Big Breakfast groomed.

Nickname – Dickwad

Dan O’Toole – Has a degree in Animal Husbandry. CKVU-CFUN-CTV Edmonton-Fort Mac Oil Barons play call.

Nickname – Toolsie

The boys are talking football, the odds, the over and under, the half time show, what food they’re prepping and what drinks they recommend.

And because The Stew is a music-driven show I asked them about tunes they’ve been listening to in the car and what they would play during the game.

Jay was kind enough to tell me that I turned him on to the original Fleetwood Mac.

The one before Rumours blew them up.

So,  included in the 2 hours of music are Hypnotized and Lemon Squeezer Live. And Jeff Tweedy’s Warm album.

Toolsie had other thoughts.  He had been listening to Eddie Rabbit in the car. His Canadian choice was Colter Wall.

So back to back you get Driving my life away and Devil in a suit and tie.

The second half of the show has a feature on a great friend…Dan Mangan.

He’s just a tad hot these days.

Released a new album called More or Less on Arts and Crafts.

He’s just been nominated for a Juno for best Adult Alternative Album.

Currently on a tour across Canada that will take him to Europe.

Dates in Alberta this week:

Friday Edmonton

Saturday Calgary

Sunday Lethbridge

And on to Vancouver, Kelowna and Victoria.

Dan takes us through two of the tracks on More or Less…including

Just Fear

Which is it

And his cover of REM’s Losing my Religion from the Unspeakable Soundtrack.


Check out the rest of the playlist..

New Santana, New Tedeschi Trucks, Mark Knopfler.

We throw in Radiohead, Amy Winehouse, Los Lobos, Crusaders with BB King and a wicked live version of Pick up the Pieces by Average White Band and all stars live at Montreux.

Have a great weekend and an even better game

Mulligan Stew August 8th 2015- Live at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival


Today at 5PM…Mulligan Stew is LIVE at the edmonton folk festival..
5-7PM Mountain time. 4-6 Pacific. Streaming live click here: LISTEN LIVE!Screen Shot 2015-08-08 at 9.46.38 AM

Right at 5pm its one of the hottest emerging acts anywhere.
2 nights ago Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats earned and received a standing ovation from the Jimmy Fallon studio audience..for their killer single SOB. (check out the video)

5 years ago Daniel would have shown up as a solo act in edmonton..just a guy, a guitar and his songs.
Now he brings a serious R&B band..with horns, B3 organ and tunes you’d swear came from the golden days of Stax.
Best of all, they kick off the show..right at 5PM.  Don’t miss these guys..
530 brings  the pride of New Brunswick Matt Anderson.
Matt brings the whole package..A voice that can switch from a whisper to a growl.  Complete mastery of his guitar and ever improving songs..the latest from his best LP ever – Weightless.
It seems he’s never not on the road but one of the highlights of his year is playing this festival in Edmonton. Not bad for a guy who has stubby fingers…

Theres a really fine story by Tom Murray in todays Edmonton Journal that details the difficult formative years of EFMF. How they almost went under 30 years ago and how a band of dedicated volunteers and music types pulled together to keep it alive..
They included Holger Petersen & Tom Coxworth from CKUA. Then along came Terry Wickham.who took over leadership and he/they began to build the outstanding event we enjoy today.
Terry Wickham guests right at 6PM.  He brings the stories with him.
630 brings Danny Michel…who, after moving to Belize and recording with local musicians released an amazing album called BlackBirds are dancing over me.
It received so many plays on so many shows that it was declared the album of the year on the CKUA Top 100.
We’re going to talk to him about his latest project – the smaller calmer School Night Mondays at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto. and jamming with astronaut Chris Hadfield.

and then two highlights from last years Festival.
Daniel Lanois and Dan Mangan and Blacksmith

Enjoy!!  tdm

Mulligan Stew Feb 7th 2015- Dan Mangan Interview


Dan Mangan

 Most certainly one of the musical highlights of last year was dan mangan and blacksmith performing live and in acapella    at the edmonton folk fest.
now with the release of club meds, they’ve turned a corner and are perhaps leaving some of the fans to make a choice.
follow the boys or find another happy quirky indy band.
Those bands are a dime  a dozen, so the choice is obvious..sign on for the long haul with dan and blacksmith because its going to be a very interesting and every changing ride.

Mulligan Stew Aug 23rd


Welcome to our new re-tooled Stew website.
Web master Corey Wood and myself will try and keep you up-to-date on everything coming your way on The Stew.
For example..


The usual two hours of great music and when we stop to talk..we don’t babble or turn it into a classroom.
Its talk from the heart.
TNile and TDMT Nile was at the Edmonton Folk Festival but I didn’t get a chance to talk to her on air..so we found each other for a follow up.
Her wonderful new release is called Tingle and Spark. Its  very good. A game changer for her.
Co-Producer Matt Rogers from The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer  allowed Tamara to  move away from folk and into a more mainstream feel.
(T says she’ll always be a folkie)
A number of you let me know that they missed the Edmonton Folk Festival Broadcast and especially the last two guests.
Daniel Lanois and Dan Mangan/Blacksmith.
daniel_lanoisSo..I’m going to recut the Daniel Lanois interview and add some music to it (U2, Dylan, etc)
The RAW interview will be posted here by Corey, so you can get a true sense of the man.
The STEW Daniel Lanois interview RAW
It was amazing to hear him talk about his past and especially his future..(no more studios)
Daniel is considered by a great many people to be one of the World’s best producers.
Lets just  check out the credits
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Lanois [line]
Dan_Mangan_CLR_Vert_HRThe last guest on the show was Dan Mangan and his group of merry pranksters Blacksmith.
 Just as we were wrapping up the show I lamented that they brought no instruments so as to play us out..but I did ask if they had any acapella tunes..why YES they did..
So..here’s the tune  right after the T Nile Interview.
OH and one more thing..I somehow got going on a STOP set.  Tunes that had the word stop in the title or the lyrics..Um..I got carried away.
Hope you like it
