EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat," it is the last show of season 1. We'll recap (very briefly), some of the material covered in the 54 shows that came before. You'll hear clips from the 75 people who were interviewed in this season, all jumbled in together. Plus a bit of fun here and there with music and local food...
Stovepipes and Woodpiles
05 Dec, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

The theme this week on Routes & Branches & Beyond is "Stovepipes and Woodpiles," which are items of importance at this time of year in my hemisphere at least. To help us feel cozy, we have west coast folkfunk dub, great smokey banjos, country tub-thumpers about a paternity question, crooked cape breton fiddle tunes, NL muddy water bluegrass, new traditional...
Olafur talks about agriculture in Iceland, in the age of free traders
04 Dec, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

How can a small population, on a large island, protect its food production from diseases and economic aggression in an age of "free" trade? No, I'm not talking about the island of Newfoundland, but the country of Iceland. This week on "Fit to Eat" I speak with a wise farmer and researcher, Ólafur Dýrmundsson, about Iceland's struggles with maintaining clean...
November Rambles, #2
27 Nov, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, another set of rambles on "Routes & Branches & Beyond." I have reckless Cape Breton slip jigs, untamed bluegrass, fiery fiddles calmed by jazz chordings, early morning kisses with accordions, mystical celtblues, relentless guitars, unleashed mandolins, fast tunes to accompany fast food, a dozen Danish on a mission, Canadian cajun and good old-time flavours. Thirteen tracks in 60...
Agriculture University of Iceland
27 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This time on "Fit to Eat," we head back to the Agriculture University of Iceland for another show. At every step, we learn how the situation in Newfoundland and Labrador is somewhat similar to that in Iceland - in terms of the challenges around local food production, the need for secondary production, and the crucial imperative to stop importing so...
November Rambles, #1
21 Nov, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we go on some November Rambles around the world of human musical endeavours. We listen to nordcelt progtrad, Yemeni soul and blues, joyous pan-African roots, dark (but enticing) tales of northern life, joyous quebecois, string quartets in Irish pubs, wrenching homages and a very repentant and tamed wild rover. Hear toy pianos,...
Talking Food and the Lure of the Land, and More, with Mark Wilson
20 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

As the old song puts it, "How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm, once they've seen Paree [Paris]?" Children who grow up on farms may sometimes try to avoid becoming farmers themselves - but that is often futile. Today we meet with Mark Wilson, vegetable and mushroom grower from Portugal Cove, who was lured back to the land...
Celebrating Light - Despite the Shortening of Days
14 Nov, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we are keeping our spirits bright with a show called "Celebrating Light - Despite the Shortening of Days."

Using What we Have with Jason Bull and Stelman Flynn
12 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

How do farmers decide what to grow? Or gather? One way is to look around you. What does nature do well? Follow that. Today we hear from two food producers who celebrate our natural resources, and work to use what we have. Two voices, of entrepreneurs who are rooted in the values of rural communities, both past and present. I...
Bonfires and Beyond
06 Nov, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on the show, we focus on "Bonfires and Beyond," in recognition that this is the time of year in northern hemispheres where such things become great comfort. As for the music, I play big folk band mayhem, sprightly clarinettish tunes from Cornwall, modern Irish protest anthems, soothing campfire tunes for the shores of a brooding lake, delightful skipping...
Agriculture and Rural Development (in Iceland and Beyond)
05 Nov, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Building a diverse food production system is just about the best rural development strategy possible. And vice versa. Today on "Fit to Eat," we test out that theory in Iceland, with teacher, researcher and rural development worker, Vifill Karlsson. We talk about attracting young farmers, enticing agri-tourists (and keeping them safe), supporting local production, the awkward urban-rural balance, and the...
Honouring the Spirits
30 Oct, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Given the time of the year at the moment in the land where I live, I am focussing on "Honouring the Spirits." I play songs and tunes that refer to that ethereal dimension. I have piano-driven Irish soul, exhibitionist celtic pagan spirituality, Hebridean progressive trad, Oxfordian dance abandonment, a classic from the days when gospel met psychadelic rock and had...
Citizen Action with Katie Temple
30 Oct, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

All across our province, and beyond, there are people who are playing their role, growing more food of their own this year than they did last year, learning to be more conscious about buying local produce, and developing a new relationship to the earth. Call me incorrigibly-positive, but it is happening. Today on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and...
The October Rambles
22 Oct, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time out, on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we have a stirring Wurlitzer-driven spiritual chestnut, a joyous pan-African song from Canada, a newly-minted but soon-to-be-considered-trad song from NL, languid reflections on mountain trails, explorations of Afro-American banjo traditions, celtic reggae evolutions, supergroup ruminations, Austro-Caledonian tune sets, feather-fingered guitar, and medieval Danish mouthbow fusion. All in an hour. No more....
Two Gentlemen of Labrador
22 Oct, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

What keeps us from growing more food - when we know that we can? Why is there sometimes a gap between the potential of our land and the actual food production that takes place? Is the commitment to eat local food harder to grow than the food itself? This week on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show,"...
Songs of Turkey and Pumpkins... and Beyond
15 Oct, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we acknowledge the season with a show called "Songs of Turkey and Pumpkins... and Beyond." I have tunes for turkeys (the bird) that are blythesome, with an Irish swagger, or a gypsy jazz finish. I have tracks from Turkey (the country), including a band whose members have been arrested over 400 times...
Pig Farming in Iceland
14 Oct, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we head to the north of Iceland, to talk with Ingvi Stefansson, a pig farmer who takes great pride in his pigs, as well as in the fine reputation of his tourist cottage (which is less than a stone's throw from his pig barn). He speaks about the challenges of international competition in the...
The Delights of Meetings
09 Oct, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

I just got back from a week-long conference, and was wondering if celtic and roots music has a lot to say about conventions? Well, no. But that didn't stop me, alas. So the latest episode of "Routes & Branches & Beyond" is a show that celebrates "the Delights of Meetings." We have mystical tunes of goodwill from war zones, Scottish...

EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we talk about a particularly popular aspect of local production - craft brewing. We meet with Robert Sutton of Crooked Feeder brewing, at his brewing location in Cormack. He talks about their strong commitment to supporting local, from the building they are in to the products they sell to the machines they use to...
Embracing Autumn
01 Oct, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," I focus on "embracing autumn." Finally, that wonderful season of the year that invigorates all as we gather the bounty of another harvest. (Or, if you are below the equator, you prepare to plant for another season.) The usual mix - a flurry of session tunes with curious titles, smooth jazzy roots...
