Mulligan Stew May 18th 2019- Jenn Grant and Tariq Interviews, and remembering Bill Coull

Inevitable.  Halfway through writing and recording the album, she
discovered she was pregnant.  Her son is on the road with her now.

Tariq’s is Telegrams.  What’s really interesting is that Tariq lectures on
lyrics and songwriting at UBC.  Is he a student of his teaching? Let’s find
