Mumford and Sons is back with Mumford and Sons tickets for a new tour schedule and the albumBabel. The quartet has returned with its harmonies and seemingly endless array of string instruments to prove the first album is not its last big hit. They hope to walk away with not only more platinum, but with a few more Grammy nominations to add to their legacy.
Each of the group members is a multi-instrumentalist. Marcus Mumford is a singer, guitarist, drummer, and mandolin player. Ben Lovett is a singer, keyboard player, accordion player, drummer, and electric guitarist, Country Winston Marshall is a singer, banjo player, dobro player, and electric guitarist. Ted Dwane is a singer, double bass player, bass guitarist, drummer, and guitarist. Originally, these four were part of the westLondonfolk scene, serving as the backup band to Laura Marling.
They had greater ambitions though. With Marcus the most prominent of the musicians and the most ambitious, acting as the de facto manager, they sought out a name that typified the folk and blue grass sound. Mumford and Sons was chosen because it sounded like a family business of ole. The group acted as a family unit, taking to the road to play concert dates throughoutLondonand the greaterUKand across the Atlantic Ocean in the United States.
All this hard work would pay off after the release of Sigh No More. The debut album would quickly find its way onto a number of critics best of the year list. The song “Little Lion Man” proved the most radio friendly, thanks to the particular emphatic use of acoustic string instruments. “The Cave”, a song inspired by Plato’s famed Allegory of the Cave. Just to round out the ancient work theme, a few allusions to Homer’s Odyssey and The Iliad are added for good measure.
With Mumford and Sons back promoting a new album, fans are looking forward to Mumford and Sons concert tickets for a tour taking place much larger venues through the United Kingdom and North America. Particularly, the East Coast has an affinity for the band, as this region seems to be the stewards of the continuation of the folk rock movement.
