Mumford & sons
Some fourteen years ago, a few young men from London formed a band. It was a happy accident,
with nothing unusual about how they formed; shared musical interests, an interest to both make
and perform music whatever the occasion, and this comparatively unique passion for community
and collaboration. They called their band Mumford & Sons, and have jokingly regretted it ever since.
You can’t get everything right.
