Mumford & Sons - Rumored to have put Folk back in the diet.


Continuing our live week from Glastonbury 2011, with Mumford & Sons. Only together a comparatively short while (2007), Mumford & Sons have pretty much re-written our preconceived notions on Folk Music, having taken the best bits and combined it with Alternative and Indie and what emerges is a new and interesting genre and one that's gathered a lot of fans over the past four years and helped put Folk music back on the map.

Tonight's track is The Cave and it was recorded on June 24th.

Further evidence music is not boring and never will be (if you exclude the mainstream, which you have to anyway).

There's more where that came from.

Can you help us out?
