EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we take another tramp around the celtic world and beyond (but since these are winter rambles, bring your snowshoes). We have cardeen quartets, blues powerhouses, hurtin' Albertans, pepperpots, funeral jazz, bandura abundances, rattling stovepipes, old bones, water sprites and maniacs by the thousand. Musicians include Jean Carignon, Anne Lederman, Matt Andersen, Cordeen,...

We have live-captured mazurkas, jangly 12-string Rickenbackers, pop love songs for Mother Nature, gospel blues about choosing a master, Italian fire mist, short-lived supergroups, Cuban cigar royalty, what to do when love comes to town, North America's only coal miner chorus, songs in Gaelic, Spanish, Italian......
Winter Rambles, # 1

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we start with High Culture, but we quickly descend into more comfortable territory. This is the first of a series of Winter Rambles, this time with green gardens, cold winds, lonely people, braw lads, sunshine metaphors, flirtatious mermaids, gaelic whiskey jars, bluegrass rap and San Francisco floral fashion. The performers include Order...
Relatively new to this world, # 3
29 Dec, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This is the time of year when we are teetering between the old and the new. Our media is full of increasingly-inane lists of "the Top 10 Songs About Vegetable Juicers" or "the Top 10 TikTok Videos That Feature Banana Peels" or whatever. But it is also a time of a focus on the promise of the New. So this...

Low Context Christmas for 2021, Episode 5
22 Dec, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

With so many thousands of holiday/Christmas/Solstice/New Year's/etc. songs around, how do radio hosts choose which ones to play? Well, I'm not sure I'm allowed to tell you, but it has something to do with blindfolds and random number generators. So, for this episode of the Routes & Branches & Beyond Low Context Christmas series, we ended up with music from...
Music of the Season, # 2
22 Dec, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

It strikes me that the Celts really do know how to do Christmas. Well, many of the symbols of the season came from them, I suppose. At least in northern climes. Them and the Nordic Yule folks. Oh, and the Romans. And later some of the Germans. And the list goes on. So, today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond"...

Lots of music, and less talk than usual, show # 3
15 Dec, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Occasionally, I play more music and talk less. That is a relief to many, I realize. So, for this holiday show, I provide very little context (i.e., talking). But I play lots of the same kind of holiday-themed material. German appalachian, Newfoundland swing, American bluegrass, holiday R&B, Latin Christmas, acadian celebration, southern swagger, British pagan sensitivity and lots of harps...
Music of the Season, # 1
15 Dec, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we acknowledge a wide variety of symbols and metaphors of the season - in hopes that at least one of them is authentic and potentially efficacious. And if not, no worries (as the young folks say), it was good to give them all a try. So, we have sugar plum fairies, wasaillers,...
Relatively new to this world, # 2

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I has a set of items that ended up in my gift box over the year. The fact that I put them there myself did not dull my excitement to open them up and play them for you. I have new fiddle duos, reassembled Big Folk bands, trans-national musical collectives, jug band...
Relatively new to this world, # 1

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

The end of the year tends to be a time of reflection - and the preparation of increasingly-inane top 10 lists. But instead of that, this week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" it is high time to play some music that is relatively new to this world, before I have to change the calendars yet again. I have music...
Friends, #4

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Sometimes, a bunch of musicians get great joy in playing with each other, but they don't want to go to the trouble of forming a band, so they still go ahead and make a CD and simply call it "____ _____ and Friends." So today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we play a bunch of these CDs - recorded...
Friends, #3
19 Nov, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

There's a bunch of those expressions that pass for wisdom, at certain points of the conversation - "friends are kin you get to choose," "good friends don't let you do stupid things... alone," "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them," and more. Today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond,"...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Chums, soul-mates, mates, compatriots, confidantes, allies, buddies. This list doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the number of different words for "friends," Check any thesaurus - there are more words for "friend" than for "enemy." And rightly so. Today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we begin a series of shows on Friends. (Not the old TV show...
RBB Encore # 4

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This is an "encore" presentation of "Routes & Branches & Beyond." (The fancy radio stations use the term "encore" for "rerun.") This week I have a set of songs about Ghosts and Graves, just in time for this season of year, when the membrane between the living and the dead is the most porous. Music from A to Y -...
RBB Encore # 3

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This is an "encore" presentation of "Routes & Branches & Beyond." (The fancy radio stations use the term "encore" for "rerun.") I just got back from a week-long conference, and was wondering if celtic and roots music has a lot to say about conventions? Well, no. But that didn't stop me, alas. So the latest episode of "Routes & Branches...

This is an "encore" presentation of "Routes & Branches & Beyond." (The fancy radio stations use the term "encore" for "rerun.") Today on Routes & Branches & Beyond, it is a Road Trip Mix. You know how, when you go on a road trip, you put together a group of CDs (or files) at the last moment. But they take...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Lo and behold... we've made it to 200! Wow. This is the 200th episode of "Routes & Branches & Beyond." So I play songs (mostly tunes) about anniversaries, centennials, celebrations, and even some reference to the "monster" that weekly radio shows become (they are monsters that show up every week and demand to be tended). As usual, there is a...
