Mumford and Sons

From The FUV Vault: Mumford and Sons

by Alisa Ali

We’ve been big fans of this British quartet ever since their debut album, Sigh No More, which came out back in 2009. In fact, Mumford & Sons actually performed a live concert for us on the US release day of that album, which was one of their first ever American radio appearances. At the time, the band was a bit of a dark horse in the music industry, but they soon found themselves at the head of the pack, taking home Best Album of the Year at the prestigious Brit Awards.

Mumford and Sons - Words and Music - 2009

by Rita Houston
Mumford Sons formed over a love of acoustic instruments, bluegrass, and vocal harmonies. Their first album, "Sigh No More," is a critical and commercial darling in the UK, and while it won't touchdown stateside for another week, the band stopped by Studio-A for some live tunes and conversation with FUV's Rita Houston.
