The Cardinal Directions: East, part 2
06 Aug, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

The beauty of a direction like east is that, wherever you are, you can always go even further east (which is not true of directions like south or north). This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we celebrate East with another show of songs with some tangential relationship to that cardinal direction. You will hear County Clare concertinas, tasty...
The Cardinal Directions: East, part 1
29 Jul, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," instead of trying to go in all directions at once, we simply head east. There we encounter Irish Balkan/Belgian odes to vindaloo, East Virginia blues from a ramblin' icon, chilly eastern gales, grand a capella laments about going east for the winter, scary fiddle tunes about Scottish witches, big band rockabilly abandon,...
The July Rambles
24 Jul, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I have a set of July Rambles for the occasion - a bunch of CDs that I've been playing over the past weeks. Symphonic fiddle tunes, ethereal Irish laments, fiery mandolins in honour of Gypsy jazz, harp tangos to calm your frantic minds, Acadian jam bands, sprightly Norwegian hardanger hoedowns, spring carols...
The Cardinal Directions: South, part 3
16 Jul, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

On this episode of "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we head south one more time to listen to a set of tracks which include some tangential reference to that Cardinal Direction. There will be speed-folk about Australia (from Germany), rousing sea shanties (is there any other kind?), a yaffle of NL accordion tunes, stride piano and swing fiddle explaining what...
The Cardinal Directions: South, part 2
09 Jul, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we challenge that old adage that "what happens in the south, stays in the south." Instead, we head dead south and haul back all manner of things, including Scottish southern angels, times of great remembering, enchanting waltzes from ambiguous border areas, southern jazz parades, complex Irish tunes in 11/8 timing, a Black...
The Cardinal Directions: South, part 1
01 Jul, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

Today on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" we shift our focus to music of the sweet sunny south... or, rather, music with "south" somewhere in the title (which is a whole different bucket of gumbo). I have tunes from cassettes (remember them?), Nova Scotia fingerpicking, Winnipeg neo-folk, classic Canadian folk about the heart, western celtic rock about southern hemisphere constellations,...
New Music for a New Season
25 Jun, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

The calendar claims that it is a new season, so it is time for some new music on this episode of "Routes & Branches & Beyond." Or at least some "newish" music. I'll play some pecuniary polkas, frenetic Irish slides from Glasgow, lusty (but appropriately physically-distanced) shanties, Danish hygge, Finnish romance, wild waltzes and happy hopsas for sensitive souls, aimless...
The Covid Cancellations, #2
19 Jun, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," it is the second installment of the Covid Cancellations series that, it appears, will continue for awhile yet. On these shows I celebrate artists and bands that I was going to see in concert, but it was cancelled due to the pandemic. But I'm not bitter. We have their music. There will...
The Cardinal Directions: West (#2)
13 Jun, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we spend another show focussing on "west" - the direction, as well as the feel, or the "tug" of the west (or is that more of a "grab" or a "yank?") I have a wheelbarrow of songs and tunes about the various wests of the world - golden, long-gone, blues-inducing, profiteering, and...
The Cardinal Directions: West (#1)
04 Jun, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we start an occasional summer series of shows on the cardinal directions (west, south, east, north). On this show, I start with songs about west. Wherever you are, someplace is further west than you - that's the beauty of the concept of "west." You can always go west. Songs and tunes of...
The Covid Cancellations, #1
27 May, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, I'm presenting episode #1 of "the Covid Cancellations." Essentially, these are artists and bands I was going to go see live, until things were shut down. Oh, well. Since festivals around here are pretty much closed down for the summer, expect that there will be many more episodes of this theme coming...
May Rambles, part 2
21 May, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on “Routes & Branches & Beyond” I feature another show of Rambles – it’s that time of year. There’s a jaunty song about the dangers of big cities, sleek (but tipsy) canoe songs from Canada, Irish jigs on the Scottish pipes, honky-tonkin’ willie-wonkin’ cowboy blues, Chinese music you won’t hear in a Dim Sum restaurant, Beethoven played on...
May Rambles, with Physical Distancing
14 May, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," we go for a May Ramble, but with appropriate physical distancing. I have existential bluegrass, a US-born Canadian icon, an Irish piper from Scotland, classic crumhorn folk of France, a folk project for Darwin's bicentennial, Down East music from York County, a song of respect for the oft-maligned bodhran player, chamber blues...
Celebrating May Month, Part 2
06 May, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I take another week to celebrate this fine May month that we are living in at the moment. We pay respect to this, the happiest month of the year, with old British ballads that are so dusty they'll make you sneeze, bagpipes from Spain and Northumberland, old-timey flowery sweetness, songs of love...
Celebrating May Month, Part 1
29 Apr, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on Routes & Branches & Beyond, we are celebrating May month, the "happiest month of the year" (some say). I have traditional songs of the Mayday season, from artists like Waterson Carthy, Oysterband and Lisa Knapp. Several wonderful, one-of-a-kind vocalists singing of the beauty of May, such as Dolores Keane and Loreena McKennitt. A few assorted tunes and...
Some New Sounds for April
22 Apr, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," just when you were growing weary of the view out your kitchen window, and the sad refrain of the news droning on and on, it is time for "Some New Sounds for April!" I play an armful of relatively recent releases, including: the Flemish swing of Trio Dhoore, the Galway celtgrass of...
April (virtual) Rambles
15 Apr, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I have a virtual ramble. I promise, it will be safe and I won't get within 2 metres of anyone. Including myself. That's the beauty of radio and podcasts. I have songs about fish-gutters, haggis eggs, spit & polish, rural fund-raisers with rye bread, pickles and big old chunks of marble cheddar...
The Comforts of Home, part 3
08 Apr, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," I bow to current events, and present part three of "The Comforts of Home." Because a lot of us are spending more time there than usual. And, despite that they often spend a lot of time on the road, musicians do tend to write lots of songs about Home. Now, this can...
The Comforts of Home, part 2
01 Apr, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

How are you doing? I mean, really? Are you enjoying being at home a lot these days of C-19 (as the hip people refer to virus)? In hopes that is true, this week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I present the second part of "the Comforts of Home" - a series of songs all about, well, home. To prove...
The Comforts of Home, part 1
24 Mar, 2020 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

If you, like me, are doing your civic duty these days, and are limiting your physical proximity to other humans, you are likely spending far more time at home than you thought possible. Thus, this week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond," the theme is "the comforts of home." Part one. Because it appears that this may be our new...
