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...
A celebration of farming
03 Feb, 2018 | 1:37:15 |
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.
Appreciating brass
26 Jan, 2018 | 1:35:28 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

As the old joke goes, "what is the range of a tuba?" The answer: "about 20 metres, if you have a good arm!" Brass players get no respect. They are often unfavorably compared to government bonds (except that the latter WILL eventually mature and make money). But we change all that disrespect tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, when...
The music of humans
23 Jan, 2018 | 1:16:10 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, you can listen to the usual somewhat-random mix of the music of humans, from here and there. Oh, and an attractive Christmas tune (it IS almost December, after all).
Slow tunes and pirate songs
23 Jan, 2018 | 1:37:22 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," you'll hear the slowest version of "Red Haired Boy" ever recorded, gourd banjos, Czech bluegrass, pirate songs, Cuban Christmas, French schottishes, Irish old-time music and a track from Robert Plant's new release.
New releases and more of the usual unusual
23 Jan, 2018 | 1:36:37 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight I have a small stack of new releases - from the East Pointers, the Waterboys, Robbie Bankes, Trad Attack and Feast of Fiddles. And from Trent Severn - a new CD that features a tender song about our own local boy, Keelan Purchase!
The holiday music show
23 Jan, 2018 | 2:03:11 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight be sure to settle in (on a snowy western NL evening) and listen to a two-hour holiday-themed show. I'll have seasonal songs in a variety of formats, including klezmer carols, part of the Nutcracker played on power tools and a version of "O Holy Night" that you may never forget.
A show about new things
23 Jan, 2018 | 1:36:31 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight is all about "new." New shoes, new pants, new hats, new waltzes, new chances and even "new and improved" people. Oh, and a new year.... Bluegrass, cajun, latin, celtic and more.
Music of January (the month)
23 Jan, 2018 | 1:39:24 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we have a little celebration of the month in which we are living at the moment. Songs and tunes about January, mixed in with the usual new releases and old chestnuts from celtic and beyond. Music you likely won't hear anywhere else... and you decide if that is a good thing or not!
The Old and the New
22 Jan, 2018 | 1:34:26 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is the old and the new. Scratchy old music from the Dipsydoodlers and the Brockway Brothers and the first recorded version of "Fishing Blues," and shiny new music from Frigg, Les Fils Canouche and the Emily Askew Band. And more, as they say.
Another New Year, this time 2018
22 Jan, 2018 | 1:31:32 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

It is a new year, so tonight I'll play a pile of new releases, with a bit of a European focus. Includes music from Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Scotland, Senegal, Britain and US.
Cornwall to Cape Breton to the Klebnikov
15 Jan, 2018 | 1:28:57 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This evening on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I'll feature music from Cornwall, Quebec, Chile, Cape Breton and an old Soviet icebreaker somewhere in the Arctic. All of that, plus a requiem that was written to observe a rather odd election result from a year ago.
