Summer Rambles, #7
14 Aug, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

"Routes & Branches & Beyond" continues its summer rambles with a show of songs about pretty things - horses, girls, men and retailers, percussive suitcases, elephants on the Highlands, the Serbian wall-of-trumpets sound, old Beatles and Young'uns, butter and snow, koras and guitars, songs that can sing souls back home, and the Great Shetland Fiddle. As you can see, something...
Summer Rambles, #6
14 Aug, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we continue our summer rambles with dazzling Scottish-German guitar duos, anthemic folk rock, Anglo-Australian fancies, lullabies about Herring, ethereal trios with classic folk-rock chestnuts, foggy bluegrass, Cuban trad, songs of lovers (both fair and foul), tunes of civil war and constitutional breakdowns, advanced didgeridoo techniques, tunes to celebrate comings and (especially) goings,...
Summer Rambles, #5
08 Aug, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

"Routes & Branches & Beyond" continues its summer rambles with ethereal Irish marches, flamenco covers of old Dylan classics, twisting Breton tunes on the hammered dulcimer, Canadian-Malian odes to the joys of bikes, Farmer's Market bluegrass, Quebecois a capella trad singing, alt-rural music about ways to decay, swirling celtic neo-pagan inspiration, songs of wry-but-wise sextons, new bands who are too...
Summer Rambles, #4
01 Aug, 2019 | 0:59:59 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

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...
Summer Rambles, #3
24 Jul, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we continue our summer rambles, with new releases from Thom Ashworth, James Hill & Anne Janelle, and Tim Baker. And the usual mix of Gaelic tweed-working songs, Zulu-celtic celebrations of the good times past, nostalgic anthems about Newfoundland, uke-driven summer laziness, trad songs about the hard side of life, atmospheric, rootsy condemnations...
Summer Rambles, #2
18 Jul, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we continue our summer rambles, to fit the open moods of the season. We start with some monster Cape Breton piano and tenor banjo and move to bluegrassified Gordon Lightfoot, classic banjo (there is such a thing), Haitian kreyol from Montreal, Cuban son from France, alt-folk from Ferney (BC), Gaelic funk, Brit folk-pop,...
Summer Rambles, #1
11 Jul, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

In honour of the season of glorious hikes and explorations that we're in at the moment, the show this week is called "Summer Rambles." The typical mix with Irish soul, appalachian roots, Canadian blues about Alberta, sea shanties, Quebec gardening songs, Malian rock about agriculture and economic development, Irish-African crossovers, a nod to Mrs. Hooligan's Christmas Cake and a Full...
My Canada Includes These, part 2
04 Jul, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," it is the second episode of "My Canada Includes These," where I feature Canadian artists who I have not yet had a chance to play on the show. Songs of love, redemption and intransigence, from duos, trios, quartets and honkin'-big bands. Join me for appalachian bog-trotting and stringbending, traditional Breton tunes (from...
My Canada Includes These, part 1
28 Jun, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," I play a set of tracks from Canadian artists that I have never played on this show before. I call the show "My Canada Includes These," and it illustrates the wide diversity of fine music out there that is a part of the rich tapestry of Canada. We'll hear piano-driven Cape Breton...
Approaching Summer
20 Jun, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond,I play a set of tracks that relate to our time of year. I call it "approaching summer." It includes Helsinki hoedowns, French salsa covers of one-hit wonders, Bahamian boat-launching songs, Brazilian bossa nova luminaries, dreamy Canadian blues-roots about summer Sunday nights, Latvian pagan fertility festival celebrations and timeless songs about the summer...
Leftovers
13 Jun, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I feature "leftovers" - tracks that I prepared for previous shows, but didn't have time to play. And, just like with food, sometimes meals made up of leftovers are the finest cuisine on the go. So we end up with a mix of music with helpful titles like "Jigs for the Gangly...
From the VOBB Vaults, Episode 2
05 Jun, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Deep in the dark hallways of the old Cottage Hospital in Norris Point, where Voice of Bonne Bay(VOBB) lives, one can find incredible delights. To prove it to you, this is the second of two shows that I'm calling "From the VOBB Vaults." These are assorted CD tracks that I found while I was staying in the old Cottage Hospital...
From the VOBB Vaults, Episode 1
29 May, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Deep in the dark hallways of the old Cottage Hospital in Norris Point, where Voice of Bonne Bay(VOBB) lives, one can find incredible delights. To prove it to you, I'm doing a couple of shows I'm calling "From the VOBB Vaults." These are assorted CD tracks that I found while I was staying in the old Cottage Hospital for a...
New Release Double Plays
29 May, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

I'm calling the show this week "New Release Double-Plays." I have a half dozen new releases, and I'll play two tracks from each. Not because I'm too lazy to find a dozen entirely different artists, mind you, but because I think it will give you a better sense of what these artists sound like. Honest. Highly charged free-reed abandon from...
To Honour Victoria, and All Queens Everywhere
29 May, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Since we are currently hovering somewhere around the long weekend in May (depending on when you read this), I'm devoting a show to Queen Victoria, whose birthday gave us this late spring holiday weekend. I guess that the "divine right" of monarchs to rule over us gave us one thing at least...! But the show is more democratic, given the...
A Visit to Australia Through Music
08 May, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week we head to the other side of the world - Australia. Of course, if you are in Australia, you will think that I am on the other side of the world. That's the beauty of perspective. I devote the show to a pile of music about flying piemen, the exploits of Ned Kelly, sheep shearing, bushland boogies and...
Tell me lies and feed me candy: celebrating election season
02 May, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, in honour of a number of provincial elections just completed, and one upcoming, I have a show called "Tell us lies and feed us candy: celebrating election season." Note the colon in the title, giving the show the academic pedigree that it needs to be credible... Music about indecision, promised lands, perfect politicians and hope. By artists like...
Look What I Found!
24 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

I call this show "Look what I found!" In the occasional process of cleaning off shelves, and distributing papers on a table, here are some of the items I've uncovered. Kind of like modern archaeology. Come-from-away fiddles, bluegrass harmonicas, French versions of Dylan, resurrections of old classics, impossible guitar licks, even a bit of Irish-Quebecois.
Easter and Beyond
17 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week the show is called "Easter and Beyond." But really, it should be called "the Rabbit and Chocolate Show." Indeed, I spend most of the time playing songs and tunes about these celebrated symbols of this time of year. But no songs about chocolate rabbits, alas. Music from Cape Breton, Scotland, Newfoundland & Labrador, Australia, Appalachia, Louisiana, and even...
Spring Cleaning on my CD Shelves
10 Apr, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Today on Routes & Branches & Beyond I do some spring cleaning on my CD shelves. In the spirit of our culture's annual cleansing ritual, I look through some of my piles of CDs and play a few before they get filed. Some Central Ontario twangers, old-timey appalachian, Malian blues, Spanish bagpipes, classic Canadian 60s pop, and Toronto celtic rock.
