Iceland and Food and Covid-19
18 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Certain borders are starting to open up, so this week we return to Iceland on "Fit to Eat." Well, on Zoom anyways. (The internet border didn't close, even though if is often unavailable.) I have often evangelized on the value of comparing approaches to agriculture and food in Iceland and in Newfoundland and Labrador. There is a lot that can...
In the Garden, #2
14 May, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

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,...
Speaking of Fish with Kimberly Orren
10 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

When you hear people talk about "local food," does the picture in your head include fish? Why do some folks talk about "fish and food" as if the two are not in the same category? Why don't we have just one basket for food - one that includes figgy duff and fat back and fiddleheads, as well as fish? Today's...
In the Garden, #1
07 May, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

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...
Where's the Beef?
04 May, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Here's a skill testing question for you: about what percentage of the beef that is eaten in Newfoundland and Labrador comes from the province? What do you think? A quarter? Less? A tenth? More? I don't want to spoil the suspense for you, so for the answer you'll have to listen in to this week's "Fit to Eat: the NL...
April Rambles #4
30 Apr, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
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...
At the St. John's Farmer's Market with Pamela
26 Apr, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Tom Chapin, the musician, gave a description of Farmer's Markets as follows in one of his songs: "Like a farm once a week, in your neighbourhood; Its Farmer's Market Good!" Indeed, Farmer's Markets aren't just those days when the country comes to the town with lots of glorious produce in tow, but they are also sites of small business development,...
April Rambles #3
23 Apr, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
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...
Adam the Lonely Cheesemaker
19 Apr, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Have you ever felt that you were alone? Like, the only one in a whole province? A one-person economic sector? This week on "Fit to Eat" we meet the only commercial cow's-milk cheese maker in Newfoundland and Labrador - for almost 10 years running now! I chat with Adam Blanchard of Five Brothers Artisan Cheese about small business, local food,...
April Rambles #2
16 Apr, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
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...
April Rambles #1
09 Apr, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
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...
How to Pivot down on the farm and at the craft brewery
05 Apr, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Pivot. You've likely heard that word quite a bit lately. I remember it from tango dance classes in Argentina (not that I ever really learned how to pivot OR to tango correctly...). But since Covid-19, we hear the word all the time. What does pivot look like on the farm? Or at the craft brewery? Today on "Fit to Eat"...
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...
Farmer Mental Health and Well-Being
30 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

You've seen the idyllic images - of strong farmers, looking over their productive fields and healthy stock, lost in thought, with a piece of straw in their mouth and accomplishment overflowing in their hearts. And these images are sometimes accurate, indeed. But sometimes farming can be stressful, lonely, challenging, unprofitable, and more. This week on "Fit to Eat" I talk...
March Rambles
29 Mar, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

This week on "Routes & Branches & Beyond" I take a ramble through the CD collection and come up with a show with a yaffle of artists who I haven't played on this show before. Humans have made so much music, and there is so little time on a weekly one-hour music show. I have fiddling stepdancers, retrofitted country wailing,...
At the Sheep Barn with Crystal Parsons
21 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat" we head for the delightful backroads of Cormack to visit with Crystal and Doug Parsons of D&D Farm. We learn about a breed of sheep with an expressive and genuine curiosity, the "normal" schedule of lambing month, the amazing skills you can develop through YouTube these days, how to set up an abattoir in...
Paddy in Song & Tune, part 2
18 Mar, 2021 | 1:00:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Routes & Branches & Beyond

We spend one more week in contemplation of Paddy's many adventures on this week's "Routes & Branches & Beyond." We meet him when he is feeling rakish, lamentatious, thoughtful, at work on the railway, on the turnpike or the beat, in Town, and even (tangentially) in 1830s Upper Canada during the disindigitization of a finger. Also, a mercifully brief dalliance...
At the O'Brien Farm with Aaron Rodgers
14 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

This week on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" I visit the O'Brien Farm in St. John's, and we head back in time, as well as look forward to the future. Quite the ride. From 1818 to 2020. I talk with Farm Manager Aaron Rodgers about history, heritage, farming, incubators, education, network building, 3-legged stools, a legacy...
At the U-Pick with Andy Wright
14 Mar, 2021 | 0:29:59 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

"We have a bit of a carrot following." "Pumpkin season is a blast." "Everybody thinks that it's easy to grow a strawberry and it's not." If you guessed that this is a farm market u-pick operator speaking, step right up and collect your prize! This week on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" I speak with Andy...
David Goodyear and his Earth-sheltered greenhouse and homestead
14 Mar, 2021 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Ivan Emke | Fit to Eat: The NL Farm and Food Show

Which would you choose for your backyard - a snowmobile, or an earth sheltered greenhouse? And which would you guess pays itself off within 5 years? This week we find out the answers to these and other alluring questions on "Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show" as we head to the Homestead at Flatrock. Dan Rubin and...
