Mumford And Sons have somehow convinced a young indie folk crowd weaned on David Gray, Coldplay and Damien Rice that banjos are hip. Their recent Philly show at the TLA was a crowd pleasing mix of old-time folk, CSN-style harmonies, audience sing-alongs and tried and true showmanship. I'm betting their best days are ahead. Who ever thought the Too-Rye-Ay Dexy's look would ever come back in vogue?
And is it me, or does Marcus Mumford look like Kyle Chandler, who plays coach Eric Taylor on the brilliant Friday Night Lights?
