EP 309 | Canada Day Weekend with Greg Keelor and Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo & Jim brings his new solo album.

hello

They are Canadian music royalty.  Who better to have joined us on the Canada Day weekend than Greg Keelor and Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo?

AND  Jim brings his 6th solo album All the World Fades Away.

There is much to talk about. In the first half of the Podcast Greg and Jim take us through Blue Rodeo’s plans for their 40th year together in 2025.

Taking part in the Lightfoot celebration at Massey Hall. Being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.. Then Greg bugs out and Jim and I talk about his 6th solo album with The Jim Cuddy band.

It’s called All the world fades away and it’s a beauty.

Stories about his Father, our friend the late  John Mann and his family, his early years on The Yukon, and his duet with Greg on the solo album. The dialogue between the two of them on the meaning of the song is WILD!

We talk tours and plans for the year.  Comments about playing the Canmore and Edmonton Folk Festivals this summer. Our thanks to the boys…

Enjoy – Happy Canada Day

Mulligan Stew June 29th 2024-Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor. Blue Rodeo and Jim Cuddy Band

hello

Had the wonderful opportunity to welcome back Greg and Jim.

Each is a force. Together it’s shots over the bow as long as the mics are on and the host is also a target.

I loved it.

We talked about 2025 and their 40th anniversary, reflections on Gordon Lightfoot and the Lightfoot concert at Massey Hall.

Being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

That’s in hour one.


Hour two it’s Jim Cuddy talking about his wonderful now now-released 6th solo album ‘All the World Fades Away;’.  Also engages on what it means to have a solo career outside of Blue Rodeo.

The whole conversation can be found on the Mulligan Stew Podcast and YouTube channel. (It’s worth it)

EP 165 | Greg Keelor-Jim Cuddy Mashup

hello

It’s not often that we double back on a previous interview.

There has to be something interesting that makes them candidates.

What we have here are two separate interviews with the co-founders of Hall of Fame/Juno winning band  Blue Rodeo, plus Greg Keelor and Jim Cuddy both have solo careers on the go.

I talked to Greg in March and Jim 3 weeks ago.

I decided to cut the two interviews together to see how the responses and stories matched.

Have a listen. It’s an interesting mashup.

Blue Rodeo plays the Calgary Stampede Saturday, July 17

And The Jim Cuddy Band play the Calgary Folk Festival Summer Serenades on Prince’s Island Park Friday, July 23

EP 152 | Greg Keelor

hello

Greg Keelor.  Co-Founder, co-Singer, co-Writer of one of Canada’s premier bands Blue Rodeo. Share the Love is his 6th solo album.

When I asked “do you  know how many solo albums you’ve  done and what the names are?”  the answer was an emphatic No.

And that was my  first question. I had another 45 minutes of questions. Now what?

Greg spun his first story about he and Jimmy Bowskill sitting around, in a hash haze throwing song ideas and guitar licks back and forth and all of a sudden there’s an album taking shape.

They recorded it and later went to a small community center at a lake to play the songs again while video cameras shot the songs for promo.

THAT recording was so good, they scrapped the studio record and went with the community hall by the lake session.

That was Greg’s answer to the second question…and we were off and running.

We cover a lot of ground with Greg Keelor..ups and downs.  Losses both human and personal.

The album is very good. His best work yet. We both agreed that the feel of the record was much like the late 60’s in LA with Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds.

He’s a good man that Greg Keelor.  Please subscribe and take 20 minutes to enjoy!

And hello Jimmy Bowskill!

  Co-Founder, co-Singer, co-Writer of one of Canada’s premier bands Blue Rodeo. Share the Love is his 6th solo album.

When asked did he know how many he has done and what the names are the answer was No.

And that was the first question. I had another 45 minutes of questions. Now what?

Greg spun his first story about he and Jimmy Bowskill sitting around, in a hash haze throwing lines and guitar licks back and forth and all of a sudden there’s an album taking shape.

They recorded it and went to a small community center at a lake to play the songs again while video cameras shot the songs for promo.

THAT recording was so good, they scrapped the studio record and went with the community hall by the lake session.

That was Greg’s answer to the second question…and we were off and running.

We cover a lot of ground with Greg Keelor..ups and downs.  Losses both human and personal.

The album is very good. His best work yet. We both agreed that the feel of the record was much like the late ’60s in LA with Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds.
