Mumford & Sons

Mumford is Marcus Mumford, and the Sons are Ben Lovett, Ted Dwane and Country Winston, and no, this is not a Dickens novel. It's a London-based band comprised of four friends with a love of things like bluegrass, folk, indie rock, frayed sweaters, pints in the afternoon, group vocals, house cats, too much coffee, gray days, antiques shops and anything else that sounds heartrending and uppity -- or at least that's the impression their debut album, Sigh No More, leaves you with. Formed in late 2007, the band made quick work of the U.K. club scene, traversing the country with its initial clutch of rickety, earnest tunes, peppering the landscape with singles and EPs. The Sons then entered the studio with Markus Dravs, producer of Bjork and Arcade Fire, and laid down the 12 tracks that make up Sign No More. Bubbling over with horns, mandolin, banjo, double bass and other instruments, the record is a fiery assortment of careening, melancholy tunes that evokes everyone from Frightened Rabbit to David Gray to Richard and Linda Thompson. Not surprisingly, the album roused critics and attracted new fans, and our sun-deprived heroes proceeded to tour the world in support of it.

  • Dust and Thunder: Live in South Africa

    Mumford & Sons

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 1 hr 31 min

    DUST AND THUNDER chronicles the meeting of South Africa with their long-standing favorites, Mumford & Sons. A British band in huge demand, and a country extremely excited to welcome them. With a coachload of their close musical friends brought along for the ride, this exquisitely shot film captures the tour's conclusion with two nights in the beautiful Pretorian outback.

    Airing new songs from Wilder Mind and the Johannesburg mini-album (a collaboration with Baaba Maal, The Very Best and Beatenburg) for the first time, and watching the expansive crowds hollering back the old favorites, DUST AND THUNDER gets to the very heart of what makes Mumford & Sons such a special act, with the stunning beauty of the Pretorian outback as their backdrop.

    Captured with gusto by award-winning live specialist Dick Carruthers, the result is an exciting and emotional document and a truly spectacular concert film that may well go down as their finest.
     
     
  • Live at Music Hall of Williamsburg

    Mumford & Sons

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 57 min

    The atmosphere at Music Hall Of Williamsburg was thick; like a down blanket, or a warm piece of cake, or any number of your favorite comfortable things. That could probably be attributed to the lush harmonies and textures of Mumford and Sons, a group of musicians (and not a family owned apothecary) who knocked several out of the park during this sold-out show earlier this Spring. From the schizophrenic instrument swaps to the bass-drum heavy foot-stomping tunes, Mumford and Sons produce a slice of music that is both wonderful and intrinsically dashing...and our cameras were there to prove it.
     
     
  • The Road To Red Rocks

    Mumford & Sons

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 1 hr 21 min

    Mumford and Sons, The Road to Red Rocks consists of official live footage directed and shot by FRED & NiCK at two sold out concerts at the beautiful, majestic, legendary amphitheater set amongst the Red Rocks of Colorado, USA. This Mumford and Sons Live at Red Rocks concert includes exclusive interviews and footage with the band recorded whilst on Gentlemen of the Road touring circuit.

    As a general rule of thumb, we say, Red Rocks concerts are not to be missed, especially a Mumford and Sons concert at Red Rocks. Enjoy!
     
     
  • We Wrote This Yesterday

    Mumford & Sons

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 1 hr 5 min

    Mumford & Sons are a band that have never stayed still. An innate desire to travel, to meet people and to do the unexpected has become a calling card of sorts as fans the world over join their community and fall in love with their consistently evolving music. This film follows the band and their latest set of collaborators as they travel across uncharted territory playing the major cities of South Africa with an eclectic mix of musician friends. They explore the craft of song writing and the people, events and influences that dictate that. WE WROTE THIS YESTERDAY showcases the band at their most open and collaborative as they relish the excitement of playing to crowds in new cities who’ve never seen them before. Along the way they set a fresh challenge for themselves; taking their collaborative culture one step further as they attempt to write and record a mini album in just 2 days, with the other musicians on tour. The filming of this process not only lifts the lid on the art of song writing in an unforced and natural way but captures the journey and story as a group of artists collide, bringing references, ideas and musical styles from Senegal, Sweden, Malawi, Cape Town and London. By exploring South Africa its influence seeps into their musical collaboration.
