Indigenous Voices
14 Jun, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I feature a full set of Indigenous music. From Hopi Reggae to Innu power-pop, along with a healthy serving of native humour. From Alaska across the north to NL and on down the continent to the southwestern desert and then across the ocean to the land of Songlines. Musicians, elders, politicians, activists....
The Garden Show
11 Jun, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I affirm the wisdom that life is too short to be walking around with clean fingernails. Yes, it is once again time to garden! And so I enlist the help of fine musicians like the Navigators (NL), Boiled in Lead (Celto-Nordic Folk-Rock), Dervish (Irish), Tim O'Brien (Appalachi-americana), Daniel Payne (Great Northern Peninsula),...
A Celebration of June
31 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we bid goodbye to May month. And we look forward to June, the first month since late last year when we don't expect to have any school closures due to snowstorms. But I likely just jinxed it there. We'll enlist the help of the Whiteley Brothers, Johnny Clegg, Washboard Hank, Geoff Berner,...
The Nordic Show
27 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is the Nordic show. Having just come back from spending time there, I feature the music of "the almost nearly perfect people" (as author Michael Booth called them). I'll have reggae from Iceland, jaunty tunes from an isolated area of Denmark, heavy folk tunes from Norway, delightful celebrations of winter from...
Spring Cleaning
18 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is spring cleaning time. My CD shelves are a bit over the maximum allowable limit according to fire regulations, so I'll have to get rid of a few... hundred... But first, I'll play them one more time and you can listen in. Bluegrass from Iceland, Southern stringband gothic, Irish jazz crossovers,...
Songs for mothers (or at least with "mother" in the title)
14 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I make an attempt to recognize the many contributions of mothers, over the life of our species, by playing songs with "mother" in the title. How's that for honouring them...?! In the process we have music from NL (Minnie White), SK (Connie Kaldor), ON (Shelley Posen), and even some places without a...
Still more new releases, before they get old...
07 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, still more new releases. This time from some new bands (e.g., the anglo-French "Topette!!" and the Irish "Connla"), some mid-career bands (the "Steep Canyon Rangers" - without Steve Martin this time) and some from - shall we say - veterans of the music industry (the American icon, Willie Nelson, NL tradition-bearers Anita Best...
More new releases to brighten your evening
26 Apr, 2018 | 1:00:00 |

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, another show of new music from musicians young and old. Debut releases from Newcastle (Pons Aelius), Illinois (Old Salt Union) and the UK bluegrass scene (Midnight Skyracer), as well as brand new offerings from old(er) performers like Jim Kweskin (the father of modern jug bands), Chris Thile (with a new art-trad release) and...

20 Apr, 2018 | 1:00:00 |

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I play a yaffle of new releases. Music from the UK (Magpie Lane, Matt Tighe, Stick in the Wheel, Said the Maiden), Ottawa (Sneezy Waters), Quebec (Tarmacadam) and Scotland (the Peatbog Faeries). And more. Oh, and the usual chatter.
Thinking of Spring
19 Apr, 2018 | 1:33:54 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

While it may not look much like spring outside at the moment, our calendars say otherwise. So i thought it was time to play a yaffle of songs and tunes about spring, just to lighten our spirits a little. Music from Denmark, Sweden, California, St. John's, New Zealand, the UK, and the Bay of Islands.
Music about fools (as opposed to foolish music)
06 Apr, 2018 | 1:29:39 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond I feature only music that large corporations have paid me to play. Kidding...! That was a late April Fool's joke - and I play a swath of music related to fools, from brilliant players like Brave Combo, Harv, Jackie Washington, the Bad Livers and Flogging Molly. Also, I have a few new releases...
A ramble through recent acquisitions
30 Mar, 2018 | 1:34:31 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we feature music of up-and-coming Canadians, traditional Irish, upstart Scots, roaring Cape Bretoners, quirky Argentinians, fundamentalist Americans, classic 1960s-refugee protest singers, and tireless but prolific singer-songwriters. Oh, and a bluegrass band made up of Dominicans (the religious order, not the country). Yes, you read that last sentence correctly.

25 Mar, 2018 | 1:36:16 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond (RBB), we feature the Juno nominees for the Roots and Traditional recording of the year. Cape Breton jigs, PEI power-trad, Saskatchewan goth-country, neo-Folklore, and more Cape Breton jigs. Looks like just another Canadian roots and traditional crop of releases! That, and a couple of African bands with staying power, a few young UK...
The St. Patrick's Weekend show
17 Mar, 2018 | 1:40:56 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is an all-Irish show, in honour of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day weekend. "But Ivan," you query, "how is that any different from your usual shows, when you play lots of Irish music?!" That's a fair point, I agree. But join me for a variety of tracks from the quiet (e.g.,...
Folk awards
09 Mar, 2018 | 1:34:58 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

In anticipation of the upcoming Juno awards later this month, tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond I play some of the nominees and winners from last year's celebrations. The Fretless, the Strumbellas, Ten Strings and a Goat Skin, the East Pointers and more. Plus, some electro-tango and a musical discourse on why one should always have cows around.
The music of Wales (not to be confused with Whale music...)
03 Mar, 2018 | 1:36:30 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

As you likely know, the 1st of March is a national holiday for Wales (the country, not the ocean-dwelling mammal). Join me on Routes & Branches & Beyond for a broad swath of Welsh music. Triple harps, pibgorns and lots of songs with words that have far too many consonants in odd places (for my limited abilities). Put a leek...
Afro-celtic excursions
24 Feb, 2018 | 1:33:58 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I get to mis-pronounce song titles in a half dozen languages. Music from Canada, Northern Ireland, Argentina and a feature on artists who have fused African and Celtic sounds. Oh, and a sappy cover of a Rod Stewart anthem.
Chinese New Year and revisiting a Beatles classic
15 Feb, 2018 | 1:33:42 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond we celebrate Chinese New Year, pay homage to the Beatles record "Rubber Soul," listen to not one but two Quebecois tunes, and learn to appreciate Celtic-Indian fusion. At least, I hope you appreciate it....
Skiffle and more
11 Feb, 2018 | 1:34:50 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Ever heard of "skiffle?" Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond I give a mercifully-brief introduction to that genre of music. Plus, a song or two about love in time for Valentine's day, a gentle waltz for winter, a bit of social conscience, and a reassurance (in song) that no bankers will be left behind (in case you had been...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

In honour of this week's NL Federation of Agriculture meetings, tonight's Routes & Branches & Beyond features songs about farmers. Also, music regarding ploughboys (roving, jolly, and otherwise) and a traditional Icelandic sheep blessing.
