Songs of new, episode 2
16 Jan, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time out on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we have more music about new - though most of it was recorded awhile back and written or collected much earlier. But that is how it goes. Songs about new years, new lands, new songs, new dances, new plans, new bells, new moons, even new hats. From folks like Arnie Naiman,...
Songs of new, episode 1

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

The dutiful consumer that you are, you know how it is with old things - once used up, we throw 'em out & bring in the new, or at least the "new-to-you." Today we do that same exercise, playing a bunch of tracks that have "new" as a theme. Join me for things new, whether they be a morning, a...

24 Dec, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Just in case you've made it to this point in the year and still haven't heard enough cool versions of Christmas and seasonal songs quite yet, you're in luck. This week Routes & Branches & Beyond has Kings and cherry trees and dances and lights and wonder and Ivy and hope, peace, joy & love. All offered by groups such...
Low Context Christmas for 2020, Episode 2
22 Dec, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

I may be off base here, but I suspect that that the three kings or wisemen or astrologers or magi or whatever they were back in the day, didn't offer gifts of Gold and Frankincense and Myrrh to the Child of the Manger, but rather gifts of Irish Jigs and Four-Part Harmony and Wild Bluegrass Played With Abandon. So, in...
Low Context Christmas for 2020, Episode 1
22 Dec, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

In case you need a bit more of a Christmas/holiday playlist, but you don't need all of the talking (or "context") of a usual Routes & Branches & Beyond show, here is a low-context Christmas show. Still lots of frost and wassail and carols and bells and even the angel Santa... or was that Gabriel... I get so mixed up...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

The candles are lit, the incense is burning, it is time for another episode of Routes & Branches & Beyond. This show is a bit of a December rambles, including gaelic tunes of kinship, the french perfume of St. Pierre, Amsterdam blues, Flamin' Hen Factories, sweet greens and blues, the second coming of folk-trad pioneers, tunes to support the Aran...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

As they say, time is of the essence - but few remember quite what that means. For us at Routes & Branches & Beyond, it means one more show about time - jigtime, times a' changin', couldn't have come at a better time, wishing for our time back, long time comin', last time, old timey, so little time and time...
Time: Episode # 3
29 Nov, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we devote ourselves again to songs and tunes about time. A bunch of it, pressed for it, how it comes and goes, before this time next year, doin' it, tryin' times, take your time and do it right, rigs of the time, the waltz of time passing, and does anybody really know...
Time: Episode # 2
19 Nov, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we take a moment out to celebrate... time. Good time, old time, hard time, a little more time, any old time, old before our time, doing our time, new time, even tea time. With artists like We Banjo 3, Steeleye Span, House of Doc, the Western Swing Authority, Shelley Posen, Annie Lou,...
Time: Episode # 1
12 Nov, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond we start to take a look at that thing that seems to be expanding these days - not our waists, but time. Yes, time. That thing that either whips by quickly or drags on. To help in this theme, I play some bluegrass from Barcelona, tender love ballads of times that stop...
Early November Rambles
05 Nov, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we do some rambling... some purposeful rambling, not senseless rambling (there's plenty of that on our news feeds these days....). I have tongue-twisting Welsh tunes, ballads of death in action, not your grandparents' version of 'Star of the County Down,' the Holy Ghost's role as a building inspector, heavy metal Irish trad,...
The Cardinal Directions: North, Part 4
29 Oct, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

On "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we take one last wistful look at the romance of the north, with tender northern Ontario ballads about southern ignorance, warnings about the lure and the dangers of the North Sea Herring fishery, the homesick nostalgia of a northern maid, the clarity of northern lights, suffering amidst beauty, how the postal code of the...
The Cardinal Directions: North, Part 3
22 Oct, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Put on your sweater and boots and head out with me on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" for another celebration of North. We head out with a Northern March, then some blackfly blues, a view of the Atlantic from Labrador, a celtic song of emigration (just the one), following the north star to freedom, an ode to a hapless northern...
October Rambles #2
15 Oct, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

In the fall, there is nothing like a good ramble. So this week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we head out for a virtual ramble - with a soundtrack. We start with some power reels, then a dash of mystical Irish spirituality, a song about one of Canada's cringe-worthy moments, a gaelic milking ditty, delta blues on the banjo,...
October Rambles #1
07 Oct, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I take you on some October Rambles. It is a meandering path, from Shetland tunes about ship rigging and late sleeping, to a classic Canadian song of exile, jaw harps and berimbaus and guiros for peace, a Latin tune for strolling in sub-zero temperatures, folk 'n roll from the vanguard of the...
Covid Cancellations, # 4
01 Oct, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I offer the fourth of my "Covid Cancellations" shows. These are artists that I'd planned to see live over the summer, but something got in the way. But to be clear - I'm not bitter. We still have their music to listen to during these interstitial times. So sit down with someone...
Cardinal Directions: North #2
24 Sep, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we get out of the stale air of the city and head for the rarefied breezes of the north. (I'm not quite sure what "rarefied" means, but it sounds impressive.) To help with this transition, we listen to the gravitas of baroque trad, a ballad for the most persistent of northern flies,...
Cardinal Directions: North #1
17 Sep, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we return to the series on the four points of the compass. And I have left my favourite cardinal direction until the last - North. I have the usual mix of jigs and songs and things in between, featuring Liz Carroll & John Doyle, Wendell Ferguson, Ian Tamblyn, The Easy Club, The...
September Rambles Two
11 Sep, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I have another set of rambles as we enter the transition from summer to fall. I start out with Zydeco blues, then rant on about the desecration of rural Canada (where the professionalization of development has led to ever-more-dismal buildings and communities) - supported by a modern bluegrass lament, then on to...
