Tunes for a Monday Morning

This week's first tune was recommended by author & editor Amal El-Mohtar, and I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it: Croatian cellists Stjepan Hauser and Luka Sulic playing "Smooth Criminal" by Michael Jackson, which they've arranged for two solo cellos. Absolutely brilliant. I haven't seen this much passionate bow-shredding since the last time I caught a Seth Lakeman gig -- so I've included one of Seth's videos, below. He's a Dartmoor lad, perfoming a song steeped in local maritime history and folkore.
