Program Title: Routes & Branches & Beyond, show # 234
Description: What do Aunts and Cousins and Uncles have in common? Depending on your family, you may say "lots" or maybe "nothing." But they are all part of our show today on Routes & Branches & Beyond. Kin... the close friends we don't get to choose. I have nostalgic tunes for long-departed Aunts, itinerant mining Cousins, the bagpiping side of the family, troublesome middle-aged stringbands, bus-driving Appalachian stars, a motley quintet of Uncles (Joe, Pen, Dan, Rat & Tim), the effects of interest rate inflation down on the farm, bluegrass reunions, early 70s pop families and Cape Breton families who play together... stay together! With artists like Tanglefoot, the Irish Descendants, Emile Benoit, Vince Collins, Show of Hands, E.C. & Orna Ball, the Del McCoury Band, Three Dog Night, Kenneth & Angus MacKenzie, Buddy Waisisnae & the Other Fellers and the Beaton Family of Mabou. Yup. Another family reunion. Tuck in your stomach and come along.
