Celebrating 200

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...

Labour Day is over, but summer hangs on for a few more weeks, making itself known, like a good strong garlic sauce. So, there is still time for a few summer rambles on this week's "Routes & Branches & Beyond." I start with a few reels, then on to cotton mills, sea rescues, icons of Canadian DIY capitalism, Songs with...

What does good weather and good music have in common? Both make it hard to sit still. So, for this week's "Routes & Branches & Beyond, I'm doing another show of Rambling through celtic and bluegrass to dixieland jazz to Irish soul to reggae to South African Mbqange, to seemingly unusual collaborations, to northern Indigenous anthems to Newfoundland classics to...
Summer Rambles # 1

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Summer is the time for rambling - even if it is just through one's CD collection...! (Though you may be surprised at how many steps I get for going from A to Z in my collection.) So set aside the croquet set and lawn darts, and pull up a hammock and join me. This week on "Routes & Branches &...

This time on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" it is the last of a series of shows on live music - remember concerts?... all to help us in making the transition back to being able to watch peoples' fingers as they play and wondering "why do so many singers think it's cool to sing with their eyes closed...?!" We start...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we have another blast of live music - all Canadian, as it turns out. We start with steel pan jigs and become ever more sublime with barnyards, bon buveurs, mighty big cars, New York girls, and ending with a magic carpet ride. With artists like Harry Manx, Vishten, Scruj MacDuhk, Le Vent...

"Vaccination?" "Check!" "Mask?" "Check!" "Hand sanitizer?" "Check!" "Two-metre pole to help maintain physical distancing?" "Check!" "OK, let's head to our first post-Covid concert. Yippee!" "Wait, did we remember to buy tickets...?" "Darn!" "We can't blame that on the pandemic...!" This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we eagerly await the beginning, any moment now, of concerts and festivals and...

Remember those things we called "concerts"...? Remember the musicians on stage, with bright lights, eager audiences, and feedback from the sound system which came from trying to balance a harp and a bagpipes on the same stage? Yes, they are slowly coming back. Glory be! To hasten their arrival, "Routes & Branches & Beyond" has a series of shows, with...
Dans le jardin #5

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," instead of playing songs about gardens and gardeners, I'll be playing songs of jardins et jardiniers! See the value of playing music from humans around the world... I'll have music from France, Cameroon, Quebec, Spain, Puerto Rico, Canada, England, Finland and even the US slips in there with one track (they would...
In the Garden, #4

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This episode of "Routes & Branches & Beyond" continues the series on gardening and farming - this time with a focus on ploughing, with songs of the days of farming before no-till methods took root. I have speeding ploughs and lots of songs about ploughboys - jolly and mundane, quet and roving, pretty and simple. From artists like Tiger Moth,...

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...

When does gardening become farming? Or when does farming turn into gardening? We can't answer those questions on this week's Routes & Branches & Beyond. But we DO play songs about both gardening and farming. After all, 'tis the season for such pursuits here in the northern hemisphere. I have music from Northumberland, southern Ohio, Louisiana, rural Sweden, outport Ireland,...

Thankfully, it's now the season to be in the garden without either a coat or bug repellant. Yippee. So this week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" the show is called "In the Garden" - songs and tunes with garden somewhere in the title. In a show maggoty with NL accordion tunes, I also have old-timey songs briefly rescued from...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," one more ramble through the month of April featuring tunes chosen with random abandon (as opposed the usual structural abandon). I have inter-celtic emanations, peripatetic harmonica, travelling blues, blistering bluegrass, a new take on rhythm guitar, a genre-jumping string quartet, lively PacifiCanadiana, melting pot Hispanic music of America, reggae impressionism, new crowd-funded...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we continue to ramble through this April, a month that (joyfully) contains all four seasons within it this year! Just to keep my celtic certification, I start with some Irish session tunes and a trooper and the maid song, then on to foggy love, bluegrassifying a Cyndi Lauper classic, a gentle gale...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we'll take a ramble through some CD shelves of the past. I play big reels, honest desires, Irish chestnuts, celebrations of the northern woods, Russian klezmer that sound like your grandmother talking, a musical primer on forest management, a short song on the long hours of women's work, curtain-hanging tunes, jazz piano meets...

EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

There's nothing quite like a brisk ramble on a rainy April day. So this week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we start with some Lowland pipes and move through Atlantic angst, western sadness, Old Vermont romanticization, Suffolk nature walks, Arkansas gospel, Irish whiskey from a soap opera star, unlikely covers, a bluesification of folk, and bluegrassification of pop, all...
The April Fool
02 Apr, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This time out, seeing as it is April Fools Week, the show features songs and tunes that refer to fools, or foolish behaviour. And, oddly enough, a fair percentage of references to being a fool in folk and roots music are related to the shifting dynamics of love. Nevertheless, we forge ahead with music from artists who are nobody's fool...
