Program Title: Routes & Branches & Beyond, show # 187
Description: Over this month, we've had lots of sun and little rain here, so we are getting used to spending time in the garden, planting, dreaming, and being eternally grateful to the farmers who provide us with most of what we need to eat. So this episode of "Routes & Branches & Beyond" celebrates the work of farmers and gardeners. We have songs about the dangers of laziness, laments for the poor dirt farmer, problems of reaping what you sow, sailors trying to increase their social class by courting a farmer's daughter, a Swedish cousin of the Farmer's Almanac, and more. Bands include Figgy Duff, Levon Helm, Ruth Moody, Ranarim, Trevor Tchir, Dirk Powell, Peter Rowan, Waterson Carthy, and new material from Leyla McCalla. Join me.
