Mumford & Sons on Grammys: Who Are They?Monica Bielanko
Last night Mumford & Sons rocked the Grammys with Bob Dylan. You can see their performance here.
Mumford & Sons are an English folk rock band. The British bluegrass and indie folk band was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Rock Song for Little Lion Man. The band’s debut album, Sigh No More, was released in the United Kingdom in October 2009, and February 2010 in the United States.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what kind of music I want to take to the hospital when I go into labor and, besides my husband’s former band Marah, I want Mumford & Sons in there with me. This is easily my favorite new band of 2010.
My husband, Serge, was in a band for 13 years that played music similar to Mumford & Sons. I’m a huge fan of folk rock. Particularly the banjo. A lot of folks think the banjo is only for super countrified music but it’s not. Marah and Mumford & Sons both use it a lot and the music will blow your mind.
