Folk music with fire and soul and a touch of alternative, nicely laced within the banjo and choral arrangements, that is what Mumford and Sons offers their listeners. Reaching out with their arms wide open and more love stories to write, each of their songs digs deep into the insecurities of life and scoffs at it just as any good friend should.

Don’t forget, when using Shop & Earn, you earn 2 SB for every dollar spent with iTunes.
