Welcoming December Quietly
06 Dec, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Sometimes a month kind of slips in, rather unnoticed. In this case, December emerged without much notice, since it had seemed like it was December now for several weeks already. In honour of that quiet entry, I play a set of tracks, on the quiet side, that include December in the title.
Road Trip Mix
28 Nov, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

oday on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is a Road Trip Mix. You know how, when you go on a road trip, you put together a group of CDs (or files) at the last moment. But they take on a logic as you travel the countryside. That is what happened to me over the last couple of weeks. Featuring...
Order in Randomness
19 Nov, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

A set of tracks chosen somewhat at random - but even random things tend to develop a sense of order and logic when you play them together, oddly enough. Maybe that is the opposite of the law of entropy. Tracks from Dick Gaughan, the Harbord Trio, and groups with creative names like the Grass Mountain Hobos, the Freight Hoppers, the...

12 Nov, 2018 | 1:00:00 |

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we celebrate a new month with some new releases. I feature three bands who are marking significant anniversaries with a new release.

At this time of year, in this country, we take time to rejoice in another harvest and to be thankful for all that we have. To help us in this, we listen to some tracks from Canada, Ireland, Scandinavia and beyond.

Songs for Autumn

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This evening, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it will be songs about Fall. Not "the fall," as in the story of human frailty and decline, but the fall as in the season - autumn. Songs from countries that have an autumn. Songs of shepherds,lumberjacks, cowboys, and how to make sauerkraut.
School Days Starting Again
13 Sep, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This is the time of year when it becomes impossible to deny that... finally... school is back in session! So tonight, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I focus on songs about school. Well, kind of... actually there are some pretty tangential connections to some of the tracks, but they are all fine pieces of music. Scottish jazz, Canadian folk,...
Changes
07 Sep, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, the show is all about... changes. Changes of life's work, of one's career, of circumstances. All of those good things. Or, put more simply, it is just a bunch of songs that have "change" in the title. Martin Simpson, Fatdog, Sierra Hull, Billy Bragg, the Hot Club of Cowtown, and more (to...

23 Aug, 2018 | 0:59:59 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we are reminded of that old commandment, "thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's CD collection." Instead of coveting it, I borrow a bunch of CDs from my friend Wayne, and play them on the show. I hope that you enjoy them. But don't covet them...! Music of the Friel Sisters, Noeleen NĂ­...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is Folk Festival time. Get out your lawn chairs and your bug spray and your industrial-strength rain gear and put up some cardboard cutouts of the backs of peoples' heads in front of you, and sit back down and listen up. It's an all-NL show, with old square dance tunes, jolly...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, in the midst of concern over wildfires in many parts of the world, we focus on the more domesticated form of the campfire.

Travellin' Songs
26 Jul, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we focus on a relevant summer theme - which is travel. Travel far and near, easy and hard, inside and outside, metaphoric and real. Helping us out this week is music including Irish reels, American bluegrass, Chinese-Appalachian banjo tunes, Canadian old-timey and Mongolian throat singing. The usual mix that I'm sure you...
