Tunes for a Monday Morning

Today's tunes are...

Above: "Shore to Shore" from the divine Johnny Flynn, who is based in London.

Below: Johnny Flynn joins up with Mumford & Sons, playing fiddle for a little back alley session filmed somewhere in...Paris? Oh, how I would like to be that lucky woman whose yard they end up in! (That's my idea of the Perfect Day, to find Johnny and the Mumfords making music on your doorstep. Throw in Seth Lakeman or Chris Thile and I'd probably die of music-induced happiness on the spot.)

The tunes in the second video are "Banjo Song" and a French-language version of Mumford's "Awake My Soul." The video was filmed by those insanely fabulous folks at La Blogothèque.
