Program Title: Routes & Branches & Beyond, show #150
Description: This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," I am freed from the tyranny of a theme. Instead, I play a bunch of tracks that have been rattling around in my CD players lately. I start with set of tunes that illustrates what Morris Dancing would have sounded like if it had been invented in Jamaica, then on to a love letter for small Atlantic villages down by the sea, an incendiary newgrass blaze from the East, a couple of blues power-duos, a Quebecois folk-n-roll dance dedicated to Jean Carignon, brand new material from the grand voice of British folk (Kate Rusby), an optimistic jig about hills and valleys, a reggae protest about the dismal corn-soybeans-subdivision crop rotation in the Oak Ridges Moraine, a jaunty tune from the resident fiddler of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and ends (appropriately enough) with a requiem for Madrid. Also comes with "umms," sighs and mispronunciations - no extra charge.
