Mumford & Sons
Mumford & Sons are an alternative rock band from London, formed in December 2007. The band released their first album Sigh No More two years later. The album reached the second position on the UK Albums Chart six months after its release. Their second album Babel became one of the fastest-selling rock albums of the decade. The group had achieved at that time worldwide success also winning a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2013. The major use of folk and bluegrass instrumentation is what makes their sound unique. With headline energetic performances at major festivals around the world, Mumford & Sons have been established as one of the most notable music groups nowadays.
