Folk Festival Time
09 Aug, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
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...
Camping and campfires
09 Aug, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
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. Songs about campfires, turf fires and camping in general. Music from Australia, America, England and the UK. Oh, and Canada. Singing park rangers, fashionable cowboys from Quebec and a...
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...
A European Vacation (with an unanticipated detour)
19 Jul, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we go on a vacation. A European vacation, no less! Just because some whiny and poorly-socialized people can't get along with Europe doesn't mean we should not glory in its marvels. We'll listen to music from France, Greece, Italy, Portugal and... like many good vacations... we go on an unanticipated detour. I...
Cajun & Zydeco & Beyond
12 Jul, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we head south for some music that is appropriate for the coming of the summer heat! Here in western NL, we've even had temperatures approaching the upper 20s! So I'll play a show of cajun and zydeco music, from classics like the Balfa Brothers and Clifton Chenier to the new purveyors of...
A Celebration of Summer
05 Jul, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Without jinxing anything, I suppose that it is safe to say that it is now... summer! And so, Routes & Branches & Beyond will celebrate that season in this week's show. Songs about circuses, roses, evenings and longjohns. Waltzes from Finland, British blues from Toronto, a salsa band from France doing a summertime gem from pop radio and a British...
My Country in 13 Songs
28 Jun, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, the theme is "My Country in 13 Songs." I realize that it will be impossible to capture the glorious complexity of the Canadian experience in just a baker's dozen of tracks, but that is no reason to avoid trying. One song from each province/territory, played in the order in which they joined...
La musique Quebecois
21 Jun, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I celebrate the joie de vivre de la musique Quebecois! All in honour of the upcoming holiday of St. Jean Baptiste. Household names like la volee d'castors, Genticorum, De temps antan, Entourloupe and Les poules a Colin. I even sneak in a few French songs from New Brunswick and Ontario.
Indigenous Voices
14 Jun, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I feature a full set of Indigenous music. From Hopi Reggae to Innu power-pop, along with a healthy serving of native humour. From Alaska across the north to NL and on down the continent to the southwestern desert and then across the ocean to the land of Songlines. Musicians, elders, politicians, activists....
The Garden Show
11 Jun, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I affirm the wisdom that life is too short to be walking around with clean fingernails. Yes, it is once again time to garden! And so I enlist the help of fine musicians like the Navigators (NL), Boiled in Lead (Celto-Nordic Folk-Rock), Dervish (Irish), Tim O'Brien (Appalachi-americana), Daniel Payne (Great Northern Peninsula),...
A Celebration of June
31 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we bid goodbye to May month. And we look forward to June, the first month since late last year when we don't expect to have any school closures due to snowstorms. But I likely just jinxed it there. We'll enlist the help of the Whiteley Brothers, Johnny Clegg, Washboard Hank, Geoff Berner,...
The Nordic Show
27 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is the Nordic show. Having just come back from spending time there, I feature the music of "the almost nearly perfect people" (as author Michael Booth called them). I'll have reggae from Iceland, jaunty tunes from an isolated area of Denmark, heavy folk tunes from Norway, delightful celebrations of winter from...
Spring Cleaning
18 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is spring cleaning time. My CD shelves are a bit over the maximum allowable limit according to fire regulations, so I'll have to get rid of a few... hundred... But first, I'll play them one more time and you can listen in. Bluegrass from Iceland, Southern stringband gothic, Irish jazz crossovers,...
Songs for mothers (or at least with "mother" in the title)
14 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week, on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I make an attempt to recognize the many contributions of mothers, over the life of our species, by playing songs with "mother" in the title. How's that for honouring them...?! In the process we have music from NL (Minnie White), SK (Connie Kaldor), ON (Shelley Posen), and even some places without a...
Still more new releases, before they get old...
07 May, 2018 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, still more new releases. This time from some new bands (e.g., the anglo-French "Topette!!" and the Irish "Connla"), some mid-career bands (the "Steep Canyon Rangers" - without Steve Martin this time) and some from - shall we say - veterans of the music industry (the American icon, Willie Nelson, NL tradition-bearers Anita Best...

Thinking of Spring
19 Apr, 2018 | 1:33:54 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

While it may not look much like spring outside at the moment, our calendars say otherwise. So i thought it was time to play a yaffle of songs and tunes about spring, just to lighten our spirits a little. Music from Denmark, Sweden, California, St. John's, New Zealand, the UK, and the Bay of Islands.
Music about fools (as opposed to foolish music)
06 Apr, 2018 | 1:29:39 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond I feature only music that large corporations have paid me to play. Kidding...! That was a late April Fool's joke - and I play a swath of music related to fools, from brilliant players like Brave Combo, Harv, Jackie Washington, the Bad Livers and Flogging Molly. Also, I have a few new releases...
A ramble through recent acquisitions
30 Mar, 2018 | 1:34:31 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Tonight on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we feature music of up-and-coming Canadians, traditional Irish, upstart Scots, roaring Cape Bretoners, quirky Argentinians, fundamentalist Americans, classic 1960s-refugee protest singers, and tireless but prolific singer-songwriters. Oh, and a bluegrass band made up of Dominicans (the religious order, not the country). Yes, you read that last sentence correctly.
