Tonight's episode of Q: The Music features Mumford & Sons, David Myles and Sarah Neufeld

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?

Over 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.
