Showtime has acquired two new music documentaries to air in February, both featuring concert footage and interviews with bands like Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros and more.

"Mumford & Sons: The Road to Red Rocks," set to make its world television premiere on Friday, February 1 at 8pm, documents the English folk rock band as they perform in two sold-out concerts in Colorado's Red Rocks amphitheater. The film, which is directed by duo Fred & Nick, includes interviews with the band and a look at life on the road.

Set to premiere on Friday, February 8 at 8pm, "Big Easy Express" is part concert doc and part road movie, following Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Tennessee's Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford & Sons as they travel from California to New Orleans via a vintage train. The film was directed by Emmett Malloy ("The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights") and has been nominated for a Grammy for Best Long Form Music Video.
