Program Title: Routes & Branches & Beyond, show # 233
Description: It is summer, so we are deep into reunion season - and the sweet joys and awkward silences that such occasions can provide. So on this week's Routes & Branches & Beyond we have the second in a series on extended families. I have homemade plaster recipes, three different Auntie Marys (are they maybe related?), shepherd retirement schemes, Scottish street rhymes, waltzing with your big sister, whittling fidders, slippery contradances, awkward family reunions, funky new family dances, the unspoken rules of family life and a clatter of accordion playing aunties. All from musicians like We Banjo 3, Figgy Duff, the Foggy Hogtown Boys, Erynn Marshall, Paul Simon, the Rodney Miller Band, Corb Lund, Tim O'Brien, Martin Simpson, the Pine Leaf Boys, the Indigo Girls, Daniel Lapp and Sly & the Family Stone. Dust off your replies to "are you married yet?" and "are you married still?" and join me.
Host(s): Ivan Emke
