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.


If you ask them, Terri, they will come :)

Marvelous! Made my heart lift and my smile grow wide!

Mumford & Sons has selected Bristol as one of a very few stops on their US summer tour. They're bringing with them a one day festival of musicians. Karen and I already have our tickets. Can't hardly wait...

Jealous, jealous, jealous!

The Mumford lads have been inviting some truly amazing musicians to play on their Gentlemen of the Road tour, which is giving smaller bands good exposure and doing a huge amount to boost the profile of alt-folk music in the both US and UK. Such lovely, generous musicians.
