Mumford & Sons - Voyage-Air!

It’s been a long journey since I first discovered Mumford and Sons at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2010.  Apparently, I was late on the scene for this dynamic group, they had one of the largest crowds gathered at the Festival that year, and I wasn’t even sure who they were.  Well, it didn’t take long to see why they rose to popularity so quickly, their guitar driven show is one of the most musically pleasing shows that I’ve seen in a long time.

I began to follow their sky-rocketing career and made it my mission to turn them on to Voyage-Air Guitar.  They appeared again in 2011 at Bonnaroo and this time, I was ready.  I called in a few favors from my friends at Sony/BMG and was given a personal introduction to Marcus Mumford and Ted Dwane, the two guitar players of the group.  They checked out the guitar with much intrigue.  Later that day, they sent their guitar tech, Adam and the drum tech, Ivan, in to check out the guitars.  Adam really loved it and the guys posed with it just for fun.  Adam said that the guys would love to travel with our guitar and he promptly gave me his contact information to try to facilitate that.

Being from England, and combined with their heavy touring schedule, it was a bit difficult to meet up with them again.  A few weeks ago, they played three sold out shows at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium.   I was able to go to the last one and meet with the guys.   During sound check, I chatted with Adam again he was very excited that I would be leaving a guitar with them.  Ted, of course, came out to claim it and had a great time goofing around with the keyboard player, Ben.  See the video for a few laughs.

Watching the show from side stage, I had the best seat in the house.  Big Kenny from Big and Rich was next to me, and guitar icon, Jerry Douglas appeared to sit in for a few songs.

Combine their passion, energy and sheer talent; it’s the perfect storm of the music world.   Their ability to appeal to not only a younger age demographic but to listeners of all kind, including other musicians, is a testament to their talent.
