EP 302 | Bahamas in Nashville: Bootcut Interview with Afie Jurvanen
Afie Jurvanen – more famously known as Bahamas! A fascinating artist and human. Never satisfied to remain in the same groove or attitude. What’s constant is his ability to create memorable songs,  surrounded by sonic texture that is his territory alone. You know it's him as soon as you hear the song. He’ll be doing summer festivals and supporting his album Bootcut -  a heavily inspired classic Country record which has recently seen his catalogue surpass a billion streams. He was awarded a pile of gold/platinum/double platinum singles while attending the JUNOs this year. . Rolling Stone covered Bootcut saying that a Canadian indie rock kid made one of Nashville’s most Country records of the year: Oh..and he was featured on The Bachelor and released an album on Valentine's day called Repackaged Love Songs. And best of all,  he’s guesting on Mulligan Stew Saturday 4 Pacific / 5 Mtn  at CKUA RADIO

EP 301 | Adrian Sutherland returns with Precious Diamonds (And hidden guest)
Adrian is a Traditional Knowledge Keeper for the James Bay Cree of  Attawapiskat First Nation. It may explain why he is such a fine songwriter and storyteller. As a singer, he's been described by producer Colin Linden as "open" sonically and spiritually. Adrian and Colin worked together on his first album When the Magic Hits. Although "together" doesn't quite describe their situation. Colin was in his home studio in Nashville and Adrian was in the frozen Far North in James Bay working in an old shipping container that he had turned into a studio. For Precious Diamonds, Adrian went south to Colin's studio in Nashville and the resulting album is now out,  many months later. Adrian takes us through a number of songs he wrote and sung. His battle finding his place in the music world. His pride in recording two songs in his native Mushkegowuk Cree. As a surprise to Adrian, I had Colin Linden in the Zoom waiting room and he popped out at just the right time to congratulate his friend. Adrian brought many stories and spoke his truth.

Eo 298 | Shotgun Sandra Oldfield - Alberta-BC Wine War
Sandra Oldfield is one of the leading voices for and in the Okanagan Wine Industry. Was team leader and winemaking leader at Tinhorn Creek in the South Okanagan. Now, she and her husband Kenn lead a popular consulting firm called Elysian Projects. Sandra is also one of the leaders in BC Tourism. She’s a highly respected spokesperson for the wine community in BC. No one hired her, she just is. Sandra is also a world-class troublemaker and people love her for that. She speaks her mind but does it from knowledge and passion for who and what she’s standing up for. Several years ago the Liquor Control bureaucrats would not allow wine fans to buy BC wine in BC and drive it back home to Alberta. I drove a case of wine across the BC/Alberta border but was not detained. Sandra ordered a shotgun from the prairies to show that a gun could be sent across borders but not wine. We’ve been friends ever since. Now the same Alberta Liquor agency is telling BC Wineries that they cannot send their wines to wine club members in Alberta and if they do, all their wines will be pulled from store shelves in that province. This is all happening just as many of the small BC farmers who grow the grapes are staggered from the almost complete loss of vineyards and fruit in the Okanagan from two Winter cold snaps that killed many many vines. I found Sandra in Victoria on Vancouver Island and sat down for a frank talk about the state of her industry and possible solutions for all involved. He also has revealed a video she shot with her husband Kenn. Boxes arriving from Alberta were sent directly to her house in BC. Sandra will explain what that says about the playing field here. Delighted to welcome Shotgun Sandra Oldfield

EP 296 | Remembering Jeff Healey and Celebrating Wine with Harry Hertscheg!
Every once in a while there’s a week that goes by that is blessed with great conversations. Somewhere down that road, I decided that instead of choosing one interview over the other, why not have them both share the podcast. March 2, 2008, was the day gifted singer/songwriter and truly remarkable man Jeff Healey lost his battle with cancer. We had a great long-distance friendship. Every time we reconnected, we fell into an easy chatter that always ended up in laughter. Good man. I was gutted by his loss. Still am. Roger Costa is the co-administrator/archivist of The Estate of Jeff Healey. He’s currently  leading the production team shooting the documentary See the Light: The Jeff Healey Story. That film and my interview with Roger will come later this year or early 2025. In the meantime, I wanted to remember Jeff on March 2 with someone who knows him well. Roger Costa. Harry Hertscheg is a regular listener to this Podcast. He listens to it while biking through busy Vancouver traffic to and from work. Work is being executive director of the hugely successful VanWineFest which is just wrapping up.  Almost 20,000 wine fans have attended seminars, winemakers dinners and large and small tastings. The feature region is Italy. 71 Italian wineries sent their best. Next year the feature region is the USA. Here’s a conversation with the completely engaging and informative Harry Hertscheg. Enjoy the ride Harry.

It was all captured by CKUA Alumni Scott Franchuck. Corby describes it as “organic”. We talked about his name “is that the name of the band?” Touched on  his time with The Smalls and how this music connects to those days. “half urban/indy and half cowboys/ranchers” We touched on Hearts on Fire Michael Barclay’s book on “6 years that changed Canadian music” which in its promo mentioned cowboys who used to play speed metal.  “the alt-country music in the late 90’s and 2000’s was littered with x-punks who suddenly discovered acoustic guitar.” That’s Corb. The Poet Laureate of the Albertan people. March 5 Corb is in Vancouver at The Orpheum March 7 Grey Eagle Calgary March 9 Midway Edmonton March 22 Zankel Hall / Carnegie Hall NYC May 28 Amsterdam And multiple dates in Europe with The Dead South.

EP 294 | Dominique Fils-Aime Interview New Album 'Our Roots Run Deep'
Dominique Fils-Aimé presents her fourth album Our Roots Run Deep. Dominique Fils-Aimé is a JUNO Award-winning singer-songwriter from Montreal. Her new album invites us to deep dive into the roots of her soul with a strong desire to connect with one's higher self and the desire to surround you in a soothing aural embrace. On stage, whether in Canada, in Europe or the USA,  Dominique Fils-Aimé’s magnetic presence on stage leads the audience on a transcendent journey.   The Montreal-based JUNO award-winning singer-songwriter put the history of African-American musical culture into the heart of her work, reflecting on the social realities that influenced the genres of blues, jazz and soul. Her previous trilogy shed light on the history of Afro-American music, inspired by soul icons such as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Etta James. 2018's Nameless, was about confronting historical silences and sorrows. This blues-tinged album led to two sold-out shows at the Montreal International Jazz Festival in 2018. Her second album, Stay Tuned! was a call for revolution. This album won the 2020 JUNO Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year.  Dominique Fils-Aimé [FEES-em-AY]  closed the final chapter of the trilogy with Three Little Words, a call for reconciliation. The record received rave reviews in prestigious publications all around the world. It made the Polaris Short List and claimed the #1 spot for best-selling album in Quebec and #2 in Canada. In her fourth album entitled Our Roots Run Deep, Dominique crafts her latest album with a loose, dreamlike narrative structure that tells a story of growth. For Dominique, nature acts as an anchor and creates the unique but interconnected journey of a human being. "Just as we cannot see the mycorrhizal network that allows trees in a forest to communicate with each other underground," says Dominique. "I believe our souls do the same and that music can be a fertilizer for this invisible communication network." Dominique!   Saturday night  Feb 17 Dominique is appearing at Calgary’s Block Heater festival at Central United Church. When she takes the stage at 8:55 Dominique will not only charm the audience in the Church but will be streamed live on the CKUA Radio Network. Province-wide in Alberta and heard on the CKUA App.

EP 292 | Alan Doyle Interview and New Album ‘Welcome Home’
Feb 9th Alan Doyle releases his next album Welcome Home Feb 10 he guests on Mulligan Stew “I have always struggled with the middle ground. I love playing live so much and I have rightly been accused of writing songs more for concerts than albums. Most people who come to my shows want that kind of night out. So, I have overlooked the lower and slower: The lower part of my vocal range and the slower songs. I’m letting myself do that for the first time on this record.” Alan’s 6th solo album and 20th of his career. Alan is celebrating 30 years in music. He’s been co-writing songs for Welcome Home with Donovan Woods, Jimmy Rankin and actor Oscar Isaac.   Alan starts a 45-night North American tour Feb 20 with 2 nights in Kelowna.  Feb 29 – Edmonton  N Jube March 1  Calgary  S Jube March 9 Massey Hall   Alan Doyle is a first-class storyteller who takes us through the songs and stories.

EP 291 | Paradigm 2022 Heritage Collection - Canadian Whisky of the Year
Making great whisky is serious business. Whisky takes time. You can create it and leave it in barrel “while your kids grow up and head off to college” kind of time. For example, Paradigm Spirits -The Heritage Collection -  Whisky of the Year in Canada spent 19  years in barrels. Then along came friends and partners Michelle deBus and Irma Joeveer who were just beginning their whisky journey. They purchased the filled barrels to start Paradigm. Then blended in some Oloroso Sherry and found a stunning balance between the corn whisky and sherry. Davin de Kergommeaux Canada’s Whisky authority and founder of the Canadian Whisky Awards describes The Heritage as having “sublime complexity and elegance with fresh fruity top notes” This is a really nice story of people who dreamt a dream of making whisky and how it all led to being named Whiskey of the Year in Canada. Besting 200 other whiskeys. Our guests are Irma Joeveer and Michelle Debus

EP 290 | The 18th Annual Victoria Whisky Fest & Canadian Whisky Awards - Part 1
“Friendship is like Whisky – the older the better”   Yes, my friends, it's our annual trek to Victoria’s inner harbour for the 18th annual Victoria Whisky Festival and the Canadian Whisky Awards. It was the founder of the awards Davin de Kergomeaux who whispered in my ear wondering why I wasn’t attending or tasting or writing about his Whisky Awards.  On second thought I think the voice in my ear was me saying “How could you possibly miss this?” just after I had missed the events about 6-7  years ago. I knew almost nothing about Whisky but my thinking was the same as wine – 17 years ago – every interview is going to be a master class. Pay attention and you could learn all about wine and pass it on to the listeners.     I’m pleased to welcome  to Tasting Room Radio – Davin de Kergommeaux – founder of the Canadian Whisky Awards. The Canadian Whisky Awards, held annually with the Victoria Whisky Festival, is the first and only competition dedicated solely to Canadian Whisky. The Awards have become the first stop for whisky producers, distributors, retailers and fans looking for the very best Canadian whiskies. Davin is the world’s leading authority on Canadian Whisky. He also has three books available on Canadian Whisky with a fourth coming in March! Davin assembled 10 judges and sent them nearly 200 competing whiskies to blind taste.  Davin announces the winner in his interview. We talk to the winners next week. [caption id="attachment_28306" align="alignnone" width="800"] Graeme Macaloney[/caption] Dr. Graeme Macaloney PEng, PhD. – Macaloney’s Island Distillery (Saanich)   Proud owner of 5 world whisky awards including World best Potstill – Kildara. They are a non-chilled, filtered, no colour-added distillery. In our 8-10 minute interview, I think I asked 3 perhaps 4 questions – Dr. Graeme handled the rest. It was like a masterclass. A charming man in a Cameron Kilt. He won Gold for his 54ppm Peat Project.   Tish Harcus –  Manager Canadian Club Whisky since 1988.  Canadian Club itself since 1858. James Neil – Bowmore Distillery. The oldest distillery in Islay. On the shores of Lochindaal since 1779. Also home to one of the world’s oldest Scotch maturation warehouses – The No. 1 Vault. James poured Bowmore 22 Aston Martin They took part in the Great Whisky Debate with Micah Dew from Maker’s Mark. Words flew, one-liners were exchanged and they still remain long-time friends. Micah was busy with a masterclass but we thank Tish and James for coming by. Chris Read –Shelter Point Distillery. Campbell River. Distinctly Vancouver Island. Uniquely Shelter Point. By the time Chris sat down we knew Shelter Point had won 2 Bronze medals for their Oak Cask Single Malt  (smoke, spices, honey, leather and a wiff of ocean) and their flagship Evans Family Reserve. (vanilla, tannins, dark chocolate, coconut, citrus, berries, cloves.) Chris explained the unique influences in their island location. It was like poetry.

EP 288 | Remembering Winemaker Mike Grgich - The man who changed the World of Wine
Mike Grgich – His 1976 Napa Chardonnay in USA/France blind tasting in Paris was The Shot Heard Round the World.   Winemaker Mike Grgich died Dec 13th 2023.  He was 100 years old. This is his story,  as told to yours truly into a nasty microphone in the lobby of the Hotel Vancouver 2016. He had just released his memoir A Glass Full of Miracles. (Note – on his way from Croatia to Napa he travelled across the Atlantic and by train across Canada to Vancouver for a lumberjack job he had applied for. The job was gone by the time he reached the west coast. So,  Mike washed dishes until he heard of a winemaking job in Napa and South he went)   Steven Spurrier, a wine expert from England who ran a fine wine shop in Paris, decided it would be fun to organize a blind tasting to coincide with America’s Bicentennial celebrations in 1976. For the tasting, he gathered together the best French judges, and the finest French wines, and to salute America on its 200th anniversary he added in a few wines from some upstart winemakers in California. Steven hoped the tasting would bring favourable attention to his wine shop. But he didn’t have any idea of the impact that his Bicentennial tasting would have on the world of wine. André Tchelistcheff, along with Jim Barrett, had hand-carried an armload of California wines to Paris for the competition. The blind tasting was held at the InterContinental Hotel in the center of Paris. The morning competition was devoted to white wines and the afternoon to reds. And Steven Spurrier brought together the very best white wines of Burgundy: a 1973 Meursault-Charmes, a 1973 Beaune Clos des Mouches, a 1973 Bâtard-Montrachet, and a 1972 Puligny-Montrachet Les Pucelles. Alongside these French legends, there was the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay crafted by Mike Grgich, and other Chardonnays from California that the French judges had never heard of either. The judges expected to sniff and gag when they tasted the California wines. But it didn’t happen that way. The nine French judges blind-tasted the white wines and graded each of them. The winner was the Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that Mike Grgich had made, with 132 points, the highest total scored of any of the wines, red or white, in the tasting. It was the champion! Then, to add insult to injury, the third and fourth places went to Chalone Vineyard and Spring Mountain Vineyard. In the afternoon tasting of the red wines, the French judges gave their top ranking to Warren Winiarski for his 1973 Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon, beating the best wines of Bordeaux, among them a 1970 Château Mouton-Rothschild, a 1970 Château Haut Brion, a 1970 Château Montrose from Saint-Estèphe, and a 1971 Château Léoville-Las-Cases from Saint-Julien. The judges were shocked as was Steven Spurrier.   Upstarts from Napa Valley had won both categories, against the very best wines of France. The French judges were speechless and a few tried to suppress the results, but without success. The following week, George Tabor’s story in Time magazine announced the American triumph, and it sent shock waves throughout the world of wine. Mike received the news that they had won by a congratulatory telegram from Jim Barrett in Paris. That was the first he learned that his wine was even in the competition. Soon, though, the importance of what had happened began to sink in.. On July 4, 1977, Mike Grgich and Austin Hills, of the Hills Bros. Coffee Company, broke ground to start Grgich Hills Cellar, which from the start sold wines that were in high demand, based on Mike Grgich’s reputation as the winemaker who won the Paris Tasting. Gradually, the winery purchased 366 acres, spread over five vineyards within the Napa Valley, allowing all Grgich Hills wines to be produced solely from estate-grown grapes. In recognition of that significant achievement, the winery changed its name to Grgich Hills Estate. The Paris Tasting revolutionized the wine world, establishing Napa Valley’s reputation as a world-class wine region! First, it shattered the myth that only French soil can produce world-class wines. For decades New World winemakers had all been stuck in that mindset and this finally broke through it.  Second, the victory pumped new energy into the California wine industry, particularly in Napa Valley. Vintners were proud to be part of what was a revolution in American wine but they still had a long way to go. So they redoubled their efforts to make better wines each year. California’s victory also inspired other winemakers in different parts of the world. Breaking the myth of French superiority gave new hope and energy to winemakers in South Africa, Italy, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, and even in Mike’s native Croatia. Now they joined the race to make world-class wines, and as the years unfolded California winemakers also shared with them their technology and know-how. As part of that effort, Mike returned to Croatia in 1996 and started a new winery in order to share what he had learned with young winemakers in his homeland. George Taber, the Time magazine journalist who first reported the tasting, in 2005 wrote a detailed account of the event and its impact in his book, “Judgment of Paris: California vs. France and the Historic 1976 Paris Tasting That Revolutionized Wine.”  As a result of his historic contributions to making world-class wine in California, Miljenko “Mike” Grgich was inducted into the Vintner Hall of Fame in 2008.   A Hollywood version of this story was true but not by much.  It was called Bottleshock.   We salute the great Mike Grgich.

EP 284 | Devin Cuddy & New Album 'Dear Jane'
The Mulligan Stew Podcast  Guest is Devin Cuddy. (Devin Cuddy band) Son of Jim Cuddy and very definitely his own man. Jim has said, on this very podcast, that he offered to school Devin and son Sam on the fine art of songwriting and playing but the guys went their separate ways. Now, Jim says he’s very impressed with their growth and creativity. They’ve been singing together for years but just casually at fundraising events. Devin talks about a maritime tour they just did. Devin has released his first new music in 5 years. The album is called Dear Jane – with a reference to Hotlips Houlihan on the Mash TV series. The album is a soulful mix of New Orleans, honky tonk, roots and Randy Newman. Devins originals are storytelling taken to another level. He’s become his own storyteller. Devin is creating his place in Canada’s music world, just like his Father. One of the great surprises is Devin’s cover of Barney Bentall’s hit Come Back to Me. Barney sings on the track. Barney, Jim and Devin have been friends a long time. Devin says he’s been waiting to sing these songs for 5 years. Should be a great 2024 for The Devin Cuddy Band. Tracks are included in the podcast.

EP 282 | The Trans Canada Highwaymen
It’s like having The Beatles on Saturday’s Mulligan Stew. But you can only have two. Do you want Ringo and Paul or George and John? Saturday our guests are Steven Page (BNL & Steven Page Trio) and Chris Murphy (Sloan). The other members of TCH are Moe Berg (Pursuit of Happiness) and Craig Northey (odds and SP Trio) Each leads his own group but they got together to sing covers of each other’s music. Then the K-Tel idea came along. For younger music fans  – K-Tel albums were Canadian hits crammed into 8 tracks,  cassettes and albums. With garish labels that you couldn’t miss in your local store or gasoline station.  Great hits – horrid packaging. Which is why the guys covered the best hits and copied the artwork. Steven makes the point that they loved these hits because they were Canadian.  They were ours. Our American friends had never heard these songs but to us they were Northern memories. They each take turns singing the lead vocal and back each other up. Covering hits by The Guess Who, Joni Mitchell, Paul Anka, April Wine, Bim (Roy Forbes), Lighthouse, Poppy Family etc. Complete interview on the Mulligan Stew Podcast and the video version on the TerryDavidMulligan YouTube Channel

EP 281 | Tom Cochrane Songs & Stories.The Duo. Canada West Tour
In the spectrum of popular music in Canada, which is as wide as the country, Tom Cochrane falls somewhere between an electrified Gordon Lightfoot and a solo Gordon Downie. Between the universal prose of Leonard Cohen and the blood passion of Tom Wilson. Three times we went to the war-torn fields and roads of Africa for World Vision and became lifelong friends. That’s what seeing men, women and children dead or dying will do to you. You seek humanity. Tom’s got humanity in spades. He came back from the first trip under a heavy dark load and sought out the only thing that he knew would lift him up. Music. He wrote a song called Life is a Highway. It became an anthem for millions. All lifted up by his music. Tom Cochrane is heading back West now. The tour is called Duo. Friday night in Medicine Hat, Saturday night  in Edmonton (Expo Centre) Then to the coast and a complete tour of Vancouver Island. Wednesday Victoria Thursday Courtney Friday Nanaimo Sunday Campbell River Monday, Nov 20 – Duncan (in the Cowichan)

We passionately join the power of A Day To Remember.  On Saturdays Stew.  Flat out. In a long and wild career, It’s the best music Art has ever created.  After losing the love of his life after 31 years of marriage and then being honoured with The Order of Canada he returned to the only thing he knew - creating and recording music.  With the support of Russell Broom Art poured his heart into these songs, on a very personal journey from grief to hope.  Shadow Walk is brilliant. Juno brilliant.  We talk to Russell about the Art that started the recording sessions and the Art that emerged months later.  More at

EP 273 | Craig Northey brings Odds: Crash the Time Machine
Crash the Time Machine The Odds 7th album has been released. The basic Odds lineup of Craig Northey, Pat Steward, Murray Atkinson and Doug Elliott are joined by the 5th Odd – Steven Page. This is songwriting at a very high level,  then taken even higher by players who are truly gifted. I’m so glad that these guys got back together again after a hiatus from 2000-2007. You can hear multiple influences in each and every track. They’ve backed Warren Zevon, they wrote and played the soundtrack for  Kids in the Hall Film Brain Candy and their TV series Death Comes to town, toured with and played with The Tragically Hip and Barenaked Ladies, wrote music for Corner Gas. Crash the Time Machine deals with religion, the days we’re all living in and several songs in memory of their friend Spirit of the West leader/writer John Mann. The song is Somehow in a Dream. The Waterboys are mentioned. As Craig tells us .. “John told me that in his last hours, he’d like to have someone play “Whole of the Moon”

EP 272 | Ariel Posen New Album 'Reasons Why'
The Sept 9 Mulligan Stew has a special guest – Ariel Posen. He’s just achieving liftoff in his career but there's absolutely no denying he has a profile arc heading up. A session guitarist in Winnipeg (I saw him as the second guitarist in Bros. Landreth. If Ariel is  playing beside Joey Landreth and more than  holding his own, you know he is good) He began his career quietly showcasing new guitars online for the companies making them. He had no idea the effect he was having on the guitar and music fans of the world, especially in Europe. So. when he finally decided to start his solo career and released his first album How Long  (2019)  Ariel was gobsmacked to find a ready and willing audience in Europe and across Canada, then in the USA. Then came Headway, Mile End, Mile End 2, Familiar Ground, the Downtown EP and just now Reasons Why. He’s touring Canada Sept 26th in Calgary Sept 27 in Edmonton Sept 28 in Saskatoon Sept 29 Winnipeg  (home town) BUT FIRST – On Sept 23 he performs at the 2023 Eric Clapton Crossroads Festival in LA. Also invited by Eric are The Bros. Landreth. Also from Winnipeg.

EP 270 | Jill Barber Interview and Kelowna Fire Special
Bumped into Russell Broom at EFMF. We talked Art Bergmann and his next album. What brings you here? Says I Playing with Jill Barber. Says Russ And that’s how Jill and I ended up sharing a freshly poured Big Rock and a wonderful interview in the green room. Jill covers thoughts and emotions on her home and Homemaker, her latest album. The complete interview – over a cold beer – starts this two-part Mulligan Stew Podcast. Part 2 is an hour special with winemakers and locals on the fires that raged through the hills of West Kelowna. It ends with a message that they’re “open for business”. Farming is tough enough. To have roads closed during the high tourist season is hard to survive. How can we help? If you’re buying wine soon please buy BC from your favorite winery. It all helps. Speaking of the recent wine country fires, the  interviews we did with locals and winemaking friends  for Tasting Room Radio will be Part Two  of this weeks Mulligan Stew Podcast  Buy Local.  Thank You         ReplyForward
