January Rambles, #2
17 Jan, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week I take the opportunity for another show of "January Rambles," wandering here and there across the roots music globe. I have assertive Scottish pipes, fingerpicking blues as smooth as sweet potato pie, chambergrass for the lowdown highbrows, shimmering harps, protest songs with a hurdy gurdy, bands names after ancient land tenure systems, acid croft tunes about folk police,...
January Rambles, #1
14 Jan, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, there is a brief break in the weather so we'll go on another north atlantic ramble, with music from more than a half dozen countries. We'll have a blast of Cape Breton tunes, some emigration laments, Irish harp slides, sing-songwriters dripping with conviction, Arabic/Celtic/Spanish pessimism, an old bar song from the AC/DC...
Changes, part two
14 Jan, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

We have one more week of contemplation of change on "Routes & Branches and Beyond" - what a valuable process that can be, and it makes for some good music as well. We celebrate the joys of not sitting around getting moldy with some Canadian old-timey retro, bluegrassified Zeppelin, sincere folk, sprightly mandolins, island carnival music, cowboy songs full of...
Changes, part one
07 Jan, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we consider one of the obsessions of this time of year - change. People think about making changes - great and small, personal and collective, anticipated and unexpected, inward and outward, poetic and awkward, in attitude and in circumstance, reassuring and jarring, looking forward and looking back. To mark this time, I...
Trading in an old year for a new one
31 Dec, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on the Routes & Branches & Beyond show, we are trading in an old year for a new one. And what better instrument to start a new year with, than the banjo?! We go from that strong opening to yearning waltzes, moist-eyed anthems, complicated ballads, twisty trad chestnuts, unexpected pop hits, unrepentant jigs, gospel shouts and terpsichorean tunes....
A world of Christmas
24 Dec, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, the world comes home for Christmas. I'll play some familiar tunes, in potentially unfamiliar ways. Wandering kings, little papa noels, bellowing angels doing the rumba, naughty mackerels, thoughtful bells, klezmer pagan, Galician lodging blues, barrelhouse polkas and mixed marriage music. Join me.

19 Dec, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week join me for some Christmas rambles in the celtic realm, on "Routes & Branches & Beyond." Ancient carols, with difficult-to-pronounce titles, solstice hymns, mummers' jigs on the mouth organ, enchanting ditties of the past, before commercialism and capitalism started to empty the celebration of its transformative power, a Tipps' Eve jig, and even the Nutcracker can't avoid the...
Party Tyme
12 Dec, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Yes, 'tis the season... for parties. Thus, the focus this week is "Party Tyme" (spelled with a "y" for some class). I have music of, and for, and about, parties. Spooky giant Orkney tunes, questionable garden parties, old-time quilting ballads, tenor-banjo-fuelled party waves from the red clay island, hogmanay trad house, Cape Breton stride fiddle, new age reggae bluegrass positivity,...
A season one recap

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...

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...
