Thread Name: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards
Subject: RE: Mumford & Sons at the Brits Awards
Someone came into Sandy Bells on Sunday and did a Mumford and Sons song out of a book without saying what it was.
More melodic than what I've heard from them in person, but I couldn't remember a note of it after he'd finished and had no idea what it was about. The singer thought they were Irish. I'd told him they were English public schoolboys last time he came in a few weeks ago, but the information didn't stick.
He did it in in C sharp minor, which gave me a chance to noodle an accompaniment with a fair degree of confidence and watch the fiddlers give up in despair. So I could find something to appreciate in them, I guess. Just not a lot.
Have they got any songs in B flat minor or E flat minor?
