Mulligan Stew
has been a fixture in the Irish/Celtic Music Scene in Chicago since 1978. They got their start playing in several nostalgic locations such as Durty Dicks, Kilkenny Castle Inn, Glenshesk Public House, O’Sullivans, Callahans, Irish Mill Inn & Irish Eyes. More recently you will have seen them playing at  many local Curragh, Fifth Province Pub at Irish American Heritage Center and many others as well as Chicago Irish Fest, Gaelic Park Irish Festival, Iowa Irish Fest and Milwaukee Irish Fest.

Their song selections come from Traditional Irish Music, Irish Drinking Songs, Folk, Rock, Bluegrass & Country Music.  The original instrumentation of the group was Vocals, Guitars & Bass.  Since then, they have added a fiddle/mandolin player and more recently, percussion.

Mark Holihan is the founding member of Mulligan Stew.  The band started as an offshoot for him and his friend’s Rich Trumbo & Bob Stern while playing folk music together in the mid-seventies.  On his first trip to Ireland back in 1977, Mark fell in love with his rediscovered heritage and the music.  The transition  from Folk to Celtic was very quick and soon they were playing in the emerging Chicago Irish Music Scene.
