Music for a stormy day... or week... or month
18 Feb, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, the show is called "Music for a stormy day... or week... or month." Some of you in this hemisphere have been coping with some weather lately, and occasionally you get a storm coming through. So, I'm playing a selection of tunes and songs that have "storm" in the title. That may sound like a weak justification for a...
Love and all that cozy stuff
14 Feb, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, in honour of the time of year, the show is called "love and all that cozy stuff." I play some dandy love songs and tunes from Ireland, England, America and Chester, Nova Scotia. Jazz standards, kids songs, Zydeco-Motown crossovers, and a few songs about love gone awry. Human emotions are complex, aren't they?
Stayin' close to home, volume 1
06 Feb, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

For this show, we stay at home - and listen to music from Canada because it is great music (and it helps in boosting our Cancon percentages). A prairie boy sings about St. John's, the Shuffle Demons get us ready for upcoming elections with their song "Pavin' my road," music from icons like J.P. Cormier and Ian Tamblyn, and Paul...
Classic Nederfolk
27 Jan, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This show we focus on some classic material from the 1970s and 1980s in the folk and folk-rock genre... from the Netherlands. I play bands with household names like Fungus, Dommelvolk, Perelaar, Folkcorn, Interweave and King's Galliard. And I top it off with a trio of more recent world-roots releases from the Netherlands, featuring a tango master, a wonderful singer...
The Land of Cheese and Bicycles - Denmark
23 Jan, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time on Routes & Branches and Beyond, we head to the land of cheese and bicycles - Denmark. I play a mix of Danish folk and roots based music, with lots of sonderhonings and hopsas, a bit of jazz and world music and ska and big band, and some Nordic noir heavy folk to raise the hairs on the...
Bring Your Passport
15 Jan, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Today we take a quick tour to listen to a few of the releases from last year, but you'll need your passport. Gaelic crossovers, an African remake of Talking Heads, reincarnating Cuba from the 1950s, Cumbia meets the Mediterranean and desert blues. Plus a revolutionary anthem for the apocalypse and some holler-folk. Interested yet?
A Week in Music at My House, volume 1
09 Jan, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, I clear off another shelf of random CDs and play them one more time before I file them away. And you can listen in. It includes some Scottish "acid croft," two amazing ukulele players, a detour into classic bluegrass, an embarrassingly-Canadian anthem, and a version of "Johnny B. Goode" that will make you like the song all over...
Getting Creative with Christmas
02 Jan, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week we have some fun with Christmas music, in a show called "Getting Creative with Christmas." I play some of my favourite Christmas cross-over tracks, from dance versions of carols to marching band renditions of Silent Night to songs played on power tools, and some stuff in between.
New Music for a New Year
02 Jan, 2019 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, we play some New Music for a New Year. It is a set of new releases, spanning a few genres, and giving off good vibes for a more peaceful and gentle year ahead. Music from L'Orchestra Pic-Bois, Blowzabella, Farsan, Lau, Cesare Dell'Anna, Doctor Nativo, Blackbeard's Tea Party, the Trials of Cato and a little quartet who are doing...
Hail Smiling Morn
19 Dec, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This episode of Routes & Branches & Beyond is called "Hail Smiling Morn - a Few Songs of Christmas." And that about sums it up. I play some recent releases in the genre, including from bands like Rum Ragged, Fretboard Journey and Eric Clapton (yes, he just released a Christmas album... next will be the kids' album...). I also do...
Happy Belated Chanukkah... and Beyond
19 Dec, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Alas, I'm often a little bit behind schedule. Which is why tonight's Routes & Branches & Beyond is a show called "Happy Belated Chanukkah... and Beyond." But the spirit of Chanukkah, light over darkness, good over evil, is still with us.
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...
Redoing Dylan
12 Nov, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

A set of covers of songs from Bob Dylan.

All of the tracks this episode were purchases at thrift shops.
New Songs for a New Month
31 Oct, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

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. Calan (from Wales) are marking 10 years together, Jamie Smith's Mabon (also from Wales) are celebrating 20 years together, and the Tannihill Weavers (from Scotland) are still pinching themselves because...
Ghosts and Graves
25 Oct, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

A set of songs about Ghosts and Graves, just in time for this season of year, when the membrane between the living and the dead is the most porous. Music from A to Y - Australia, Alberta, Appalachia, Ireland, the Orkneys, Texas, and York (UK). Oh, and even Toronto...!
CDs from my car
18 Oct, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

A bunch of releases that have been lurking in my car for far too long. New material from Quebec (Genticorum, Christine Tassan et Les Imposteures), Nova Scotia (Ben Caplan), BC (Pharis and Jason Romero), the UK (Rory McLeod and the Familiar Strangers) and Scotland (Niteworks).
CDs that were on my window sill

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

A variety of new releases that have been haunting me for awhile - until I play them...!
