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...

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...

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we acknowledge the season with a show called "Songs of Turkey and Pumpkins... and Beyond."

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.

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I have more summer rambles with cosmic celtic banjos, re-imagined appalachian chestnuts, hoedowns for legendary fiddlers and bright Scottish swing about industrial wastelands. There are songs of indifference (and difference) about dashing fencing masters, small fish in tins, hard-living authors, old farmers not doing well, root vegetables and maggoty fish. New music...
