With their album Babel, Mumford & Sons
not only surpassed the success of their debut, but rocketed to worldwide superstardom. Filling massive venues around the world and collecting a handful of Grammys, not to mention kickstarting the nu-folk movement, Mumford & Sons are one of the biggest bands in the world. They stopped by Studio Q on the release of Babel to perform from the record.
Plus Canadian crooner David Myles
drops by Studio Q to perform songs from his record 'In the Nighttime' and to reflect on his JUNO award winning collaboration with Canadian hip-hop artist Classified.
And Sarah Neufeld
of Arcade Fire performs from her first solo-violin album.
What is Q: The Music?
the years, an impressive array of gifted performers have made their way
through Studio Q. Collectively, they've created a music collection so
good that we just can't keep it to ourselves.
We've curated our favourite and most memorable performances into a brand new weekly program, Q: The Music
, hosted by Jian Ghomeshi! The show, which premiered just last week, airs at 7 p.m. across Canada on CBC Radio 2
The shows aims to showcase living legends, buzz bands, and undiscovered artists outside the mainstream.
We hope Q: The Music
will be your Tuesday night go-to for a carefully curated mix of
established and up-and-coming artists, from within North America and far
beyond. A typical episode will feature three acts: one top-tier
performer; one rising star, and one act that might fall just on the
outside of the mainstream.
